'Jersey Boys' ★★★★

You may feel like they never went away, but the blue-collar gentlemen of the Garden State, ever working their way back to you, have returned to Chicago's Bank of America Theatre. If you already saw the theatrical story of Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi and are contemplating another go-around, you'll want to know if the national tour holds up. Absolutely it does. The set is smaller, but nobody is going to ¿Jersey Boys¿ to look at director Des McAnuff's trademark platforms. They're going to hear the music. -- Chris Jones<br><br><b>
Through June 3 at the Bank of America Theatre, 18 W. Monroe St.; $35-$100 at 800-775-2000 and broadwayinchicago.com</b>
