The show 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 Season. 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 them. 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 of 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 at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on Nov. 6, 2005, running 11 record-breaking year and becoming the 12th longest running show in Broadway history. The boys said goodbye to Broadway on Jan. 15 of this year.
The national tour of the show began Dec. 1, 2006 and is still breaking house records across the country. Jersey Boys is also playing London and tours of the United Kingdom will begin at the end of 2017 and in Australia at the end of 2018.
