Catch a sneak peek of “Jersey Boys.”
“Jersey Boys” is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide—all before they were 30. The show features all the hits, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What a Night,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back to You.”
“Jersey Boys” opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on Nov. 6, 2005. The “Jersey Boys” U.S. national tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on Dec. 1, 2006, and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. “Jersey Boys” is currently playing in New York, Las Vegas and London, plus in cities across North America and the U.K. on national tours. More than 22 million people (as of January 2015) have seen “Jersey Boys” worldwide.
Directed by two-time Tony-winner Des McAnuff, “Jersey Boys” is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
