JERSEY BOYS is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. The show features all their hits including “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Oh What A Night”, “Walk Like A Man”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” and “Working My Way Back To You”.
JERSEY BOYS opened in New York on November 5, 2005 and by the time it closed over 11 years later on January 15, 2017 it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd Street, Fiddler On The Roof, and The Producers. JERSEY BOYS will return to New York with a new production in November 2017. The national tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006 and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. JERSEY BOYS tours of the United Kingdom and Australia will begin at the end of 2017 and 2018 respectively.
The original cast recording of JERSEY BOYS produced by Bob Gaudio was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. The cast recording is available on Rhino Records. JERSEY BOYS: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons is the official handbook to the smash broadway hit. ‘Seasons Greetings: A Jersey Boys Christmas’ is available on Rhino Records.
JERSEY BOYS will premiere in Nashville at TPAC January 9-14, 2018. Tickets for JERSEY BOYS will go on sale in October.
