Frankie Valli, I've Got You Under My Skin Pink Saturday

My adventure this weekend was seeing Frankie Valli -- without the Four Seasons -- in an extraordinary one-week Broadway show.  He is 82 and I am hoping I am going as strong at 72, let alone eighty-two.

His backup for the concert was the Modern Gentlemen, a handsome, lively and wildly talented group. There was also a nine piece band and I could happily have listened to the band for the evening. 

And the music! Though I wasn't a particularly strong fan of the Four Seasons in high school I knew just about every word to every song. The audience was encouraged to sing along and there was swaying, clapping and lots of singing. As you can see in the group in the far corner of this photograph, there was dancing, too. I felt as though I was at my high school reunion -- if my reunion was held at a Broadway theater, I knew only one other person there (my friend Lonni) and Frankie Valli was the entertainment. I was definitely right at home with my peer group and yes, it felt great.   

My clue in my Wedding Wednesday post was discussing the four seasons. I only realized I had left a hint after I wrote the post, but I liked the idea of a (very, very subtle) hint.

Lonni and I had a fabulous time and we followed up our spectacular evening with a walk to West 69th Street this morning. I think of it as the "Halloween Street" and I'll be sharing pictures tomorrow.

As ever, thanks for visiting and have a very merry Halloween Monday.
