NEW YORK — The Broadway hit “Jersey Boys” is going to get some competition from an original Jersey boy.
Frankie Valli, whose falsetto fuels The Four Seasons’ music, will return to Broadway for seven shows from Oct. 21-29 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
That will put him in competition with the behind-the-music musical about the doo-wop group that plays at the August Wilson Theatre.
Valli last played Broadway in 2012 in a lucrative set of shows. Some of his hits include “Sherry,” “Walk Like A Man” and “December `63 (Oh What A Night).”
In 1990, Valli and The Four Seasons were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Together they scored 30 Billboard Top 40 hits, and Valli scored nine Billboard Top 40 hits as a solo artist.
NEW YORK — “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer’s next novel is a thriller, without vampires.
Little, Brown and Co. announced Tuesday that “The Chemist” will be published Nov. 15. The company says the book features a former government agent living underground and forced to “take one more case to clear her name and save her life.” “The Chemist” is Meyer’s second book for adults. In 2008, she wrote “The Host.”
Meyer’s “Twilight” books have sold more than 150 million copies and were made into a blockbuster film series starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
In a statement released Tuesday, Meyer called her new book a union of “romantic sensibilities” and her “obsession with Jason Bourne/Aaron Cross.”
