Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. The musical details 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 sound, and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were thirty.
Jersey Boys opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on November 6, 2005. The musical’s First National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006, played a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. Jersey Boys is currently playing in New York; London; Las Vegas; Brisbane, Australia; and across the US on two National tours, and it is coming soon to Adelaide, Australia; Singapore; and Johannesburg, South Africa.
