Jersey Boys at West End Live - If you happened to make it along to West End Live last month (See News, 17 Jun 2008), you’ll know that Ryan Molloy and the other stars of Jersey Boys were a big hit. And if you didn’t make it, fear not, as we’ve tracked down some great footage of their full performance, which includes the songs “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Oh What a Night!” >>>Click here to view!
Broadway’s producer prodigy - Cubby Bernstein is Broadway’s best-kept secret, a maverick producer who’s very much at, shall we say, the fledgling stage of his life, if not his career.
