Clint Eastwood's JERSEY BOYS Starts Screening in Asia Today
Manila, Philippines--Distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company, the screen to stage adaptation of Tony Award winning musical Jersey Boys, directed by Hollywood luminary Clint Eastwood, will start screening in Ayala Cinemas (Manila, Cebu, Davao, Olongapo, Cagayan de Oro, Cavite, and Pampanga) starting today, July 16.
JERSEY BOYS, the story of legendary American recording artists Frankie Valli, who hails from Belleville, New Jersey, and the Four Seasons (Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi), is still playing strong at the August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd St. New York NY), after nine years since the show officially opened on Broadway.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, whose phenomenal hit "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," first released in 1967, has spawned numerous cover versions, and which for me is the best musical number from both Tony winner Des McAnuff-helmed musical theater genesis and director Eastwood's mixedly reviewed film adaptation, is a group of social misfits who becomes one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. Besides, "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," which was first to record a pop song with a red hot horn section, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons also made popular "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Oh What A Night," "Walk Like A Man," "Working My Way Back to You," and the romantic ditty "My Eyes Adored You."
