Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It is the tale 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 sound and sold 175 million records worldwide, all before they were 30.
Jersey Boys opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on Nov. 6, 2005. The first national tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on Dec. 1, 2006, played a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. There are six current productions of Jersey Boys worldwide: New York; London; Las Vegas; Auckland, New Zealand; and two U.S. national tours.
The design and production team comprises Klara Zieglerova (scenic design), Jess Goldstein (costume design), Howell Binkley (winner of the 2006 Tony Award for his lighting design of Jersey Boys), Steve Canyon Kennedy (sound design), Michael Clark (projections design), Charles LaPointe (wig and hair design), Steve Orich (orchestrations) and Ron Melrose (music direction, vocal arrangements and incidental music).
Jersey Boys is produced by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, with Latitude Link and Rick Steiner.
