"Gian Raffaele DiCostanzo stars as Frankie Valli after having previously appeared as a swing onboard Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2019 and played Joey at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Florida last fall. Here, he not only nails Frankie's character arc, but also his vocals without ever coming off as an impersonation."
-Jeffrey Kare; Broadway World
Frankie, acted by a charming and vocally-gifted Gian Raffaele DiCostanzo, struggles with romance, with his roots, and with standing on his own two feet...Together, they tell a compelling story of how life influences art and how art influences life.
