‘Jersey Boys’ returns to North Texas, this time in Fort Worth
Doo-wop music reached a pinnacle, and evolved into something more, with the arrival of the Four Seasons, led by the angelic high tenor of Frankie Valli. Jersey Boys, which won the Tony Award for best musical, is a catchy, engaging jukebox musical.
Bass Performance Hall,
525 Commerce St., Fort Worth.

Queer musical ‘Falsettos’ opens at Winspear
William Finn’s groundbreaking musical Falsettos — really two one-act musicals, called March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland — was a joyousyet sad depiction of queer life just at the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic. Revolutionary when it won Tonys for its book and score in 1992, it feels just as relevant today in its depiction of love, loss and family. The Lincoln Center’s acclaimed 2016 revival arrives in Dallas with a brand-new national tour this week.
