Jersey Boys: Buffalo's architecture 'like no where else'

3:30 p.m. BUFFALO -- An historic theater and a city full of architecture has combined to make the three-week stop in Buffalo a special one for the cast of the musical "Jersey Boys." 

"The architecture in Buffalo, it's like no where else we've been," said Joseph Leo Bwarie, who plays Frankie Valli in "Jersey Boys." "It's amazing here."

Four cast members who play The Four Seasons -- Bwarie, Matt Bailey, Steve Gouveia and Ryan Jesse -- spent the morning at Buffalo's Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Historic Site in Delaware Avenue to take a tour. 

The actors were also presented with a 1965 article written when The Four Seasons performed in Buffalo. 

The size and architectural details of Shea's Performing Arts center -- where the actors have spent most of their time since arriving in Buffalo earlier this month -- has caught their attention. 

"We've seen a lot of theaters around the country, and this one, especially, is just awesome on the inside," said Bailey, who plays Tommy DeVito.  "So I knew it was going to be kind of a special place to come to."
