Jersey Boys at Philadelphia's Forrest Theatre and other must-dos for September.
The manufactured boy bands of the ’90s could learn a thing or two from the rags-to-riches tale of Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Coming to Philadelphia Sept. 30-Dec. 12, the wildly popular, Tony Award-winning musical celebrates the ’60s-era adventures of four blue-collar boys and their remarkable ascent to teen-dream stardom from the streets of Newark, N.J. This show’s got pop—albeit of a more classic variety. $54-$201.50. Forrest Theatre, 1114 Walnut St., Philadelphia. Call (800) 432-7250 or visit telecharge.com. —Chelsea Reyher
