“Jersey Boys,” directed by Clint Eastwood, is a modest box office hit for a movie. In six days it’s made about $18 million and finish fifth each day. But somehow “Jersey Boys” the movie is having a golden glow effect on everything associated with it.
For one thing, the Broadway musical was up 4.8% in ticket sales last week. It’s doing better than it has in months after a long, fallow winter. Last week the show sold out 90% of its tickets and took in over $900,000.
At the same time, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons remain at number 1 on amazon.com with a greatest hits package. The soundtrack to “Jersey Boys” has moved UP to number 3 on amazon. The CD score album for the Broadway show “Jersey Boys” is back on the amazon chart. So is another greatest hits album selling for full price.
It IS 2014, isn’t it? Most of Frankie Valli’s hits came in 1961-64. The movie has reminded the world of the songs, the real reason “Jersey Boys” exists. Right now, Frankie has just four dates booked for the summer. But something tells me his schedule is about to get a lot more crowded,
