“Oh, What a Night” was had Wednesday, July 23, by the enthusiastic ASU Gammage audience reveling in the musical magic of “Jersey Boys” — the Tony Award-winning story of four blue-collar kids who became the 1960s chart-topping The Four Seasons. In just two and a half hours (including a 15-minute intermission), the talented 21-member cast transforms Klara Zieglerova’s simple, fluid, multilayered set into the sinister back streets of New Jersey townships, the smoky interiors of no-name bars, and the brilliant television stage of “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
From left, Hayden Milanes, Quinn Van Atwerp, Nicolas Dromand and Adam Zelasko perform in "Jersey Boys."

You can’t go shopping these days without seeing at least one little girl, tootling along behind her mother, humming songs from Disney’s “Frozen.” You could let it go, or you could tell her about Celtic Woman’s Emerald Tour, coming April 8 to ASU Gammage, where she’ll experience a singing, clogging, twirling performance of Irish world music that’ll send her dancing out the door.

1. Year of the Horse means “instant success” and is a symbol of the Chinese culture. The horse is a symbolism of war. During the Han Dynasty, China often engaged in warfare with nearby nomadic tribes. Those tribes had warhorses that often scared the opposing forces. China saw this tactic and decided to purchase their own warhorses from other nomadic tribes. Horses essentially were a symbolism of power, strength and intimidation.
