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.

Fresco Montclair Presents the Mille Miglia Anti-Bullying Car Show Rally

From Maserati to Ferrari to Lamborghini, the biggest names in the luxury car industry assembled at Fresco Italian Eatery’s First Annual Mille Miglia Anti-Bullying Car Show Rally in Montclair, New Jersey.

#HipNJ celebs such as Emmy Award winner Armand Assante and Jersey Boys Broadway star Dominic Scaglione, Jr. were among the 2,000+ spectators that were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime automobile parade of over 40 rides.  

#HipNJ’s Peter Falzo went one-on-one with some of the big players from the event, including Fresco owner Franco Porporino, Jr. about his desire to stop bullying.  Editor-in-Chief of Hudson MOD, Ty Sawyer, talked about how much of a privilege it was to be able to give back to the community in such a “hip” way.

Observers had a chance to further help the cause by purchasing a ‘Stop Hate’ design product.  The designer, Karma for a Cure, gives 10% of the proceeds for whichever cause (in this case, bullying) to the charity it supports.  Founder Margaux Minutolo filled #HipNJ in on the amazing story behind her brand.

Other #HipNJ companies that lent their support included Dieci Uomo Men’s Spa, Wide World Ferrari Maserati and Mille Miglia Italian Auto Club.
