"THE MOST EXCITING MUSICAL BROADWAY HAS SEEN IN YEARS.”
– Chicago Tribune

"THE CROWD GOES WILD.”
– The New York Times

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!” raves the New York Post for JERSEY BOYS, the 2006 Tony Award®‐winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story of how four blue‐collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were 30! JERSEY BOYS, winner of the 2006 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album and most recently, the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, features their hit songs “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh What a Night” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” “IT WILL RUN FOR CENTURIES!” proclaims Time Magazine.

The JERSEY BOYS creative team comprises two‐time Tony Award®‐winning director Des McAnuff, book writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, composer Bon Gaudio, lyricist Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo. 

Jersey Boys is not recommended for all ages.  The show contains smoke, gun shots, strobe lights, drug references, sexual situations and authentic “profane Jersey language.”  Parental discretion advised.

Bob Gaudio supervised and wrote the majority of the music in JERSEY BOYS and won his first Grammy® Award for the Original Broadway Cast Album.

JERSEY BOYS opened on Broadway on November 6, 2005.
