Jersey Boys to honor 'Sopranos' at Emmys

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- The cast of the smash hit musical "Jersey Boys" will salute "The Sopranos" with a special live performance at Sunday's Emmy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

Actors from HBO's New Jersey-set mob drama have shown tremendous support for the musical about famed performers Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

Now the cast of the San Francisco production of "Jersey Boys" will return the favor.

"We would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the longtime contribution to television by one of our medium’s most creative and durable drama series, 'The Sopranos.' In a keystone segment of this year’s telecast, the cast of Broadway’s hottest show will honor the other Jersey boys with a musical send-off featuring songs from the 'Jersey Boys,'" said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards.

"The Sopranos," which recently concluded its six-season run, leads all series with 15 Primetime Emmy nominations.

The real-life Valli played a mobster in several episodes of the acclaimed drama.
