Jersey Boys #HipNJ Premiere!

For over a decade, Jersey Boys has dazzled audiences all over the world with the sweet sounds of Newark natives Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons…but never in #HipNJ! That’s about to change, thanks to New Brunswick’s State Theatre New Jersey.

FINALLY, for the first time ever, the Broadway smash hit will be making its Garden State debut on Friday, October 13 at 8PM! Other dates include Saturday, October 14 at 2pm and 8pm and Sunday, October 15 at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets range from $35-$98.

Jersey Boys is the 2006 Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Award®-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds, and sold 175 million records worldwide—all before they were 30! Jersey Boys features their hit songs “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh What a Night,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

The Jersey Boys creative team includes two-time Tony Award®-winning director Des McAnuff, book writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, composer Bob Gaudio, lyricist Bob Crewe, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

Lavene Gass on Vision Boards

Media entrepreneur Lavene Gass joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her secret to success.

A friend introduced Gass to vision boards, which became the catalyst of where she is currently. “It’s goal setting,” Gass says of vision boards. “You are mapping it out.”

Gass does vision board seminars, where she has both taught and learned a great deal. “So many women are so down on ourselves,” she says. These vision boards represent hope.

“Just paper and images can really help you attain your goals,” she concludes.
