Award-winning hit musical Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, arrives at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from September 5 to 23. The cast of Jersey Boys will be led by Preston Truman Boyd (Bob Gaudio September 5-9), Miles Jacoby (Bob Gaudio September 11 – 23), Nick Cosgrove (Frankie Valli), John Gardiner (Tommy DeVito) and Michael Lomenda (Nick Massi) and as The Four Seasons, with Jonathan Hadley and Donnie Kehr.
Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks went on to become one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds, and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before reaching the age of 30.
The overwhelmingly popular musical is the winner of the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award®, 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). As of July, Jersey Boys has been seen by over 15 million people worldwide.
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.
The Jersey Boys 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. There are six current productions of Jersey Boys worldwide: New York; London; Las Vegas; Auckland, New Zealand; and two US national tours.
The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Jersey Boys, produced by Bob Gaudio, was recently certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
