BWW Column: Five Things About... the JERSEY BOYS MovieBWW Column: Five Things About... the JERSEY BOYS Movie
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 4, 2015

Today, I am kicking off the series with “Five Things About the JERSEY BOYS Movie,” a film that I failed to see in the theater because all of the horrendous reviews Clint Eastwood's direction received. Released in June 2014, the movie tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Based on the Tony and Grammy winning musical of the same name, the film adaptation went through a number of iterations during development.
