Film adaptation of the stage musical of the same name traces The Four Seasons' rise to prominence.

Described by the Vocal Group Hall of Fame as the world's biggest rock band prior to the rise of The Beatles, The Four Seasons rose to prominence from humble beginnings in the streets of New Jersey to recording-industry immortality on the strength of impressive melodies and frontman Frankie Valli's standout falsetto. Adapted from the Tony Award-winning musical of the same name, Jersey Boys details the multitude of challenges Valli and company faced -- Mafia ties and threats paramount among them -- on their way to fame and fortune.
