The legendary Broadway show 'Jersey Boys' ends it's run today

The 12th longest running show, not musical, not drama, but SHOW in Broadway history ends it's run later today. Johnny and Mrs. Johnny took a good friend from out of town to see it around 4 years ago, what an absolute treat.

Wanna know something else? The very idea of the play was pretty much crowdfunded back in the day (You didn't think it started on Broadway did you?) and unlike every 3 out of 4 Broadway plays, this one made money. Lots and lots of money not just on the Great White Way but worldwide as well.

A great read about the play and the earliest backers from the Seattle Times today. It'll tide you over till football at 4:30.
