Legal Lessons From 'Jersey Boys' Copyright Infringement Case

I first saw the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys in mid-July 06' -- not late December, back in 63'. A tale about blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks becoming one of the biggest pop music sensations of all time is a plot that just writes itself -- or does it?

The Midtown Men Tell It Like It Is... Was... Will Be (Part I)

The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'phenomenon' as an occurrence, perceived through the senses, the cause or explanation of which is in question. I cannot imagine a more fitting description for The Midtown Men and the exhilaration which both precedes and follows their every public appearance.

Crewe, one of the most successful songwriters and producers in pop-music history, died on Thursday at 82 after a long illness. It's a personal loss for me, because I got to know Crewe a bit when I helped produce and write liner notes for a box set of Four Seasons' hits in 2007.

Kumba is what you think about when you see Clint Eastwood's movie version of Jersey Boys. Everyone but Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen) who talks about T.S. Eliot's "objective correlative" is from the neighborhood and that's the problem

Joseph Russo Plays Joe Pesci in the Film Jersey Boys

Joseph Russo is an actor portraying an actor. He has a big presence on screen in Jersey Boys. Even when he's just standing in the background, he's in character, fiddling with his jaw or doing something that makes you take notice.

Four guys stand under a street lamp, singing their hearts out. That's the iconic vision of Doo-wop/pop groups like The Four Seasons. The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys puts a name and face to that image.

Week in Film: Third Person, Jersey Boys and More

Marshall Fine | Posted 08.18.2014 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Having never seen the stage version of the jukebox musical on which it was based (in its 10th year on Broadway), I still felt that I was getting a representative feel for that show, as filtered through Eastwood's flinty consciousness. But that doesn't make it a good movie.

Frankie Valli On Elvis, 'Jersey Boys' And The Tragedy He'll Never Get Over

Pat Gallagher

Francesco Stephen Castelluccio -- Frankie Valli -- knew what he wanted to do for a living by the time he turned seven. It just took the magic of one performer -- Frank Sinatra -- who stood up on the stage of the Paramount Theater in New York City to reel him into dreaming of a singing career that would change the course of his life.

Awash in Nostalgia

George Heymont

Some people believe that hindsight is 20/20. I think it's warped by sentimentality, wishful thinking, and rose-colored glasses. Whether one listens to Betty Buckley singing "Memory" from Cats, or Barbra Streisand's version of the title song from 1973's The Way We Were, memory tends to play tricks on clarity.

Baby It's You! isn't the show that critics wanted it to be. Reviewers compared it to the beloved Jersey Boys. It's a natural comparison to make, but Baby suffers as a result of these lofty expectations.
