first_img Star Files View Comments After much anticipation, a trailer for Clint Eastwood’s big screen adaptation of Jersey Boys has finally been released! Watch as we get a taste of what the stars look like in their flashy blazers and hear how showstopping numbers such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” will sound in movieplexes. John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony Award for his performance as Frankie Valli in the original Broadway production, reprises his role for the film, with Vincent Piazza, Erich Bergen and Michael Lomenda rounding out the remaining members of The Four Seasons. We’ll still have to wait until June 20 to walk like a man over to the cinemas, but let the trailer below (as well as the first official poster!) hold you over in the meantime! And of course, get your Jersey Boys fix on Broadway at the August Wilson Theatre. from $59.00 Jersey Boys Related Shows John Lloyd Younglast_img read more

They elected to take a selfie in front of the locked front games to the stadium instead.Friday would have been the completion of the third week of spring-training play, but coronavirus precautions wiped out the remaining 12 days of the schedules in Arizona and Florida.Kathy and Karl Richards were riding mountain bikes through the Camelback Ranch grounds Saturday, pondering an early end to their spring-training trip. Dodgers fans from Lena, Ill., the Richards were renting a house in the area for five weeks and had season tickets to every Dodgers game this spring.Karl and Kathy Richards, Dodgers fans from Lena, Ill., visit an empty Camelback Ranch. The retired couple bought Dodgers season tickets for spring training and rented a house for six weeks but only were able to attend eight games. (Photo by Doug Padilla)They attended eight games before the spring schedule was canceled. They will head home soon, cutting the trip by a week. As for refunds on unused tickets, Kathy Richards said she hasn’t looked into it but doesn’t expect it to be an issue.“We have a son-in-law who is fighting cancer, so we will go home and be quarantined before getting to see him and our grandchildren,” said Kathy Richards, who is a nurse. “And we have been pretty much been on our own outside of the stadium, hiking and biking. … We’re kind of anxious to go home.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error GLENDALE and TEMPE, Ariz. – In one symbolic release of anger and disappointment, Dodgers fan Chris Donat actually turned to the one thing that had bothered him so much these past few months.Frustrated upon hearing spring-training games would be canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, just hours before he was set to make a 10-hour drive to the desert, Donat’s reaction came quickly … almost instinctively.“I took a baseball bat to a trash can just like the cheatin’ (expletive) Astros,” Donat said. “And then I raged some more when I realized we couldn’t cancel the hotel room. Then I said, ‘What the hell.’”Donat and his wife Roxana decided to make the best of an unfortunate situation and took their getaway anyway, all the way from Seaside. The drive was so long they broke it into two days, visiting a relative in Oxnard along the way.center_img Orange residents Scott Hemmeter and Alex Uniack turned their thoughts to baseball just as the NFL season was winding down. As the Super Bowl was being played in early February, Hemmeter locked in a rental house in Scottsdale for the March 13-15 weekend.There was no way of knowing their planned games in Mesa on Friday and Tempe on Saturday would not be played.Orange residents Scott Hemmeter, left, and Alex Uniack visit an empty Tempe Diablo Stadium on Saturday, making their planned spring-training trip to the desert even after learning games were canceled. (Photo by Doug Padilla)Hemmeter and his son, and Uniack and his two sons, still made the drive from Orange County even after learning there would be no games.“We have an Airbnb so we knew we were going to be isolated anyway and not in a big hotel or anything,” Uniak said, acknowledging the need for social distancing. “They were pumped for a boys’ trip so we did an indoor skydiving place and then we did Topgolf last night.”Before he left Orange County, Uniak said there seemed to be far more people practicing social distancing than in the desert.“We were surprised,” Uniak said. “It almost seemed like (coronavirus precautions) weren’t going on. Not the lack of baseball, because that feels like it. (One place) was kind of packed. Like wall to wall, shoulder to shoulder.“As if nothing was happening,” Hemmeter added.Dodgers fan Rick Runa from Whittier was in a group intent on making its seventh consecutive trip to spring training, even if games weren’t going to be played. Saturday’s game between the White Sox and Dodgers had long been canceled but they came to Camelback Ranch anyway.“You knew the situation was going on, but you didn’t expect the decision (to cancel) so quickly,” Runa said. “It was disheartening but we’re trying to make the best of it. We’re hanging out and spending time together, still on vacation.”Without a game Friday, the group visited Sedona and was planning on returning home Sunday. They heard a few spots on a local brewery tour might be available.“People are out socializing and you can tell they are taking their precautions and whatnot,” Runa said. “Six feet.”James Moreno of Rancho Cucamonga said his first visit to spring training was in the works for eight months. Wearing an Angels cap and Angels-themed T-shirt, he walked the steps at Tempe Diablo Stadium.“Yeah, it’s a little bit disappointing, but in the long run, you have to take care of your family, you have to take care of yourself,” Moreno said. “It’s just precaution and hopefully they can pick baseball back up and it won’t be too long before we do start back up.”For Kathy and Karl Richards, the trip back to Illinois will be a long one, but they plan on making the most of their tour through multiple states.“I plan on buying toilet paper on every stop along the way,” Kathy Richards joked. “I’ll sell it when we get back home.”last_img read more
