The Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Award-winning hit musical Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, makes its much-anticipated return to Nashville with a one-week special engagement at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall on Jan. 9-14, 2018.
Jersey Boys is the winner of the 2006 Tony Award® for Best Musical, the 2006 Grammy Award® for Best Musical Show Album, the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and the 2010 Helpmann Award for Best Musical (Australia). The premiere and return engagements of Jersey Boys in Nashville were overwhelming successes, seen by over 40,000 theatergoers, and hailed as “vibrant and enthralling” by the Tennessean.
Directed by two-time Tony Award® 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.
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. 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 You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”
Jersey Boys opened in New York on November 6, 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, Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Producers. Jersey Boys will return to New York with a new production in November 2017. The Jersey Boys US 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. Jersey Boys worldwide has been seen by over 25 million people (as of August, 2017).
The Jersey Boys design and production team is comprised of Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (winner of the 2006 Tony Award® for his Lighting Design), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projections Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Orich (Orchestrations) and Ron Melrose (Music Supervision, Vocal/Dance Arrangements & Incidental Music).
Jersey Boys is produced by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, with Latitude Link and Rick Steiner
