The Tony award-winning show returns to the Lied for four performances.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Even if you haven’t seen it, Boys jersey is one of those shows you’ve almost certainly heard of, and it returns to the Lied Center for Performing Arts on March 25.
Over its 18 years, the show has racked up numerous awards and accolades. What’s the attraction? Perhaps it lies in this true story of four successful children.
“It’s an incredible behind-the-scenes story of what happened with this band. It’s almost a behind the music“says Devon Goffman, who plays Tommy DeVito. “I think it was the first time on Broadway that they really managed to create a behind the music story, a true story.
For Goffman, a big part of the thrill is hanging out as the modern Four Seasons, as the show spins around the country playing rock music in venues similar to those the original boys played. The audience also plays a big role in this thrill.
“The audience is electric in this show,” Goffman says. “I’ve never felt anything quite like ‘Walk Like a Man’ ending every night. Audiences go crazy like they’re there in 1961.”
This must be due to the timeless appeal of Four Seasons music, as Goffman explains how “these guys managed to transcend generations musically.”
Take that music, add the dancing, the incredible true story, and you have a winner.
