Let's Hang On

Let's Hang On
Forum Theatre, Billingham
Let's Hang On is a show celebrating the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Little snippets of narration add an informative - yet unobtrusive - amount of biographical background, but the evening rightly focuses firmly on the famous songs. One scene highlights a period in the early 1950s and invention of the famous and ground-breaking doo-wop sound.

Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons enjoy a long history; Let's Hang On includes songs all the way from 1949 (I Can't Give You Anything But Love) to 1978 (Grease, of course) and all of the decades in between, featuring a whole host of well-known songs, such as Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Rag Doll, Working My Way Back To You and Bye Bye Baby ('not written by the Bay City Rollers!').

It all makes for a very entertaining evening. The musicians are excellent and the falsetto voice is well to the fore!
