In Britain, Jersey is a Channel Island best known for its prize cow herds. This Jersey has nothing to do with dairy — but it is the cream of the crop of pop-compilation musicals. That’s largely due to Jersey Boy’s cleverly constructed book, which embeds the hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in a plot that charts their rise to fame. Brits know tunes like ”Walk Like a Man” and ”Big Girls Don’t Cry” as well as Americans; the novelty here is the boys’ juicy backstory (criminal pasts, shady connections). As Frankie, the energetic evening’s anchor, Ryan Molloy displays amazing emotional and vocal range. (Tickets: jerseyboyslondon.com) A-
