I first saw Jersey Boys when it opened in the West End in March 2008, at the Prince Edward Theatre, and recently checked my diary to see what I'd said about it at the time.

"They were just four ordinary guys from New 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. 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."
Jersey Boys will be the first show to play at the newly reopened Trafalgar Theatre. The internationally acclaimed musical Jersey Boys has played in the West End, notably the Piccadilly Theatre where it concluded its incredible nine year run on 26 March 2017. The original West End production won the 2009 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical and included Ryan Molloy as Frankie Valli, Stephen Ashfield as Bob Gaudio, Glenn Carter as Tommy DeVito and Philip Bulcock as Nick Massi.
Featuring music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Jersey Boys features the hit songs "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)", "Can’t Take My Eyes Off You", "Sherry", "Walk Like A Man", "Bye Bye Baby", "Big Girls Don’t Cry" and many more.
Jersey Boys will begin at Trafalgar Theatre on 28 July, with performances currently scheduled to 2 Jan. 2022. Jersey Boys tickets are on sale now with LondonTheatre.co.uk.
