The Jersey Boys musical is the fabulous story about how 'Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons' came together and stormed the charts with their infectious blend of music creating hit after hit for the band with songs such as 'Big Girls Don't Cry' and 'Working My Way Back To You' among many others that will have you tapping your toes and singing in the theatre aisles!
Set in downtown New Jersey, each member of the band, Nick Massi, Tommy DeVito, Bob Gaudio and Frankie Castelluccio, tell their version of events from how they started on the wrong side of the law but through working together were able to invent their own high pitched sound with the help of the powerful vocal notes of lead singer Frankie Valli.
You'll see where it all began as the group sign their first contract to perform as back-up singers and are forced to play a variety of small entertainment venues including The Four Seasons Bowling Alley which became the title for the group after a failed audition there. After singer-songwriter Bob Gaudio joined the group and compiled lyrics for 'Sherry', 'Big Girls Don't Cry' and 'Walk Like A Man', The Jersey Boys finally hit the big time with a number of successful singles under their belt and adulation from fans around the world. The group's subsequent successes are marred by the appearance of a loan shark who wants his money back from Tommy DeVito who, without the knowledge of the band, had managed to rack up large debts including an enormous unpaid tax bill.
The story of The Jersey Boys takes you on a journey with lots of highs and lows all leading to the moment when in 1990 they were indicted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when the group performed together for one last time. This is the true life story of 'Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons', their dealings with the mob among a series of heartaches, triumphs and above all – the music!
The Jersey Boys musical has become an international success in the theatre world winning 55 major awards worldwide including the coveted Olivier Award for Best New Musical in addition to four Tony® Awards. After your first viewing of The Jersey Boys, don't be surprised to find yourself saying 'Oh What A Night' and 'Beggin' to see it once more!
