Smooth and not-so-smooth moves

We've bought season tickets, mainly because I want to see War Horse -- which means we have to suffer through Flash Dance as well, but I suspected this would delight younger daughter and I was right. She loved every moment.

I actually didn't know a great deal about The Four Seasons, but as the Resident Fan Boy put it, the Jersey Boys didn't let the story get in the way of the music, although their moves are quite a bit slicker than the originals. Here's an idea:
