Fans of the famous sixties rock and roll group Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons are in for a treat on Saturday as award-winning tribute show Walk Like A Man swings into town.
The current line up features Robert Metson, Michael Riseley, Thomas Sutcliffe and Ian Curran in a show that has received international praise for its slick vocals, sharp moves and old-fashioned showmanship.
The production takes the audience back in time on a musical journey through the incredible career of the world-famous band which climbed the charts during the 60s and 70s with hits such as Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.
At their peak Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons sold over 100 million record sales worldwide and gained a place in the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Produced by ex-West End Jersey Boy himself Mark Halliday, Walk Like A Man has won the coveted Best Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons Tribute Act award twice at the National Music Tribute Awards, a testament to the singers’ amazing on-stage portrayal of the characters and their music.
Ian Curran, who plays the role of Tommy Devito, explains why the show is one not to be missed.
“It’s basically a celebration of the music and life of Frankie Valli & the Four Season’s and is so much fun.

“I’ve got a lot of theatre friends here too and have just written a Sleeping Beauty musical which opens in Manchester in Deceember. It features music by Simon Hanson from Edinburgh so I’ve been here a lot lately working on that and love spending time in Scotland.”
