Jersey Boys , which will end its five-week run at the Forrest Theatre on Saturday, set records when the national tour was here last winter - and now it's setting new ones. The musical, still playing 90 miles away on Broadway, has done very well since it crossed over the home of the Jersey boys and into Pennsylvania, with a record gross for the Forrest of $1,617,700 for a week of eight performances that ended Jan. 8. The Tony-winning musical about the singing group the Four Seasons with Frankie Valli began here Dec. 6 with an all-new national tour cast.

Fans ask Jersey Boys star Jarrod Spector one question more frequently than any other: "Is that your real voice?" The Philadelphia native will showcase that voice Thursday night when he takes a break from his falsetto-intensive Broadway role as pop legend Frankie Valli   . He'll give a free performance in the Live from Loews concert series, recounting his journey to the spotlight. The stories, like the well-trained voice, are all his. In "Minor Fall, Major Lift," a 70-minute memoir in music, Spector will drop the accent he assumes for the Broadway hit about '60s hit-makers the Four Seasons.

A COMPOSER IN "Jersey Boys" says he's moved to write music when he hears the voice of Frankie Valli, which he compares favorably to greats like Dinah Washington. In the ear of the beholder, I guess. There are others who think Valli sounds like one alley cat sexually assaulting another. Yet no matter what you think of the voice behind "Rag Doll," you leave "Jersey Boys" with respect for the sheer determination of the crooner and his band the Four Seasons. They had way more hits than you think they had, and stuck around longer than you think they did. How you feel about "Jersey Boys," the movie, is another matter.

Brad Hawkins never planned on becoming a multisport star at Camden High School. He never planned on playing football, period. "I was all basketball," Hawkins said. "I knew so much about the tradition of Camden High basketball. I always wanted to be a part of that. "I didn't even think I would play football. " Hawkins played football. He played basketball. He ran track. He is the Inquirer's senior boys' athlete of the year because he excelled in all three, moving from sport to sport during the course of the school year as easily as he shed would-be tacklers on the football field or skirted around defenders on the basketball court.

For Sa'eed Nelson, the weekend calls were the best. St. Augustine Prep wouldn't be scheduled to practice that day. But the spirit would move veteran coach Paul Rodio to round up his players for another workout - something informal, something fun. "He'd call and say, 'Hey, let's get together at the gym,' " Nelson said. "I loved that. I loved that he loved coaching us that much. I loved that he wanted to be around us that much. " At this stage of his career, almost any accolade that Rodio receives can seem like a Lifetime Achievement Award.
