The Jersey Boys at the Curran Theatre: Our Boozy Backstage Interview With the Cast

The Boys share a laugh over the world's most versatile adjective: fuck.

If falsetto warblings make you weak in the knees, Jersey Boys could induce a seizure. The boys are back in town and opened on Saturday at theCurran Theatre, kicking off an eight-week run. On Friday night, we got the chance to quaff choice cocktails (Walk like a MANhattan or Joy-zee Juice anyone?) and talk a little dirty with the handsome-as-hell cast at a Q&A happy hour; we're still convinced the Curran Balcony's never seen that much booze.

Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons are played by Nick Cosgrove (Frankie Vallie), John Gardiner (Tommy DeVito), Miles Jacoby (Bob Gaudio), and Michael Lomenda (Nick Massi). The four “men” — (sorry but Nick looks like a fresh-faced elfin boy, all sweet grin and fair skin) — were all dashing in full suits, coiffed do's, and winsome smiles. They poised, preened, and waxed a bit poetic about “the process,” their journeys as performers, and of course, San Francisco; they also got a little naughty. Here's a juicy little round-up of what these blue collar Broadway badasses had to say for themselves.
