The event where these pixs came from was the media/local business event. We were invited for a sneak preview of the music, story and a Q&A with the touring cast at the Forrest Theater.

Joseph Leo Bwarie, who plays Frankie Valli signs the commemorative book that was included in our gift bag.
At the “Jersey Boys” preview party: Joseph Leo Bwarie, who plays Frankie Valli in the show and Lisa Gaudio, daughter of original Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio. The show opens at the Forrest Theater Sept. 30.

A few weeks later I attended Lisa Gaudio’s wedding; the father/daughter dance with Bob Gaudio. Bob wrote many of the songs for the Four Seasons and was an original band member.
Frankie Valli was also at the wedding. It was a surreal experience.
As was Jarrod Spector who plays Frankie Valli; here he’s being introduced by the Geater, Jerry Blavet
