Jersey Boys, which has already been seen by more than 20 million people, premieres in the South Bay on July 15-20 at San Jose’s Center for the Performing Arts, 255 S.

(The POV device is also used in the current film version of Jersey Boys, although judging from the tepid critical response, not nearly as effectively.).
