Jersey Boys on Broadway
"Jersey Boys" is an award winning musical about the life and times of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. It has been so successful that the original cast members have gone on the road in an attempt to repeat the formula. Their show, "The Boys in Concert", touts the reuniting of the original cast of "Jersey Boys" featuring the music of the Four Seasons, as well as other artists from the 60s such as the Beach Boys and Motown artists.
Frankie Valli felt that they took a little too much from "Jersey Boys" and filed suit against the show alleging that the "Boys in Concert" steals songs, stage elements and logos from the original show.
Valli and company are suing for $1.5 million for infringement of ten songs, all of the shows profits, and other damages for unfair competition.
