Jersey Boys now booking to 25 October 2015 at Piccadilly
The show is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.
The London production is staged by the entire original Broadway creative team: Directed by Des McAnuff, designed by Klara Zieglerova, lighting by Howell Binkley, choreography by Sergio Trujillo, costumes by Jess Goldstein, sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy and projections design by Michael Clark. The orchestrations are by Steve Orich and the music direction and vocal arrangements by Ron Melrose.
The cast includes Michael Watson (Frankie Valli), Matt Nalton (Nick Massi), Edd Post (Bob Gaudio) and Jon Boydon (Tommy De Vito).
The Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons – Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi – and how this group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American and International pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were thirty. Their songs include ‘Sherry’, ‘Walk Like A Man’, ‘December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)’, ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’, ‘My Eyes Adored You’, ‘Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got)’.
Jersey Boys opened at the Prince Edward Theatre 18 March 2008, following previews from 28 February 2008 and closed there on 9 Mar 2014. The show re-opened a few days later, at the Piccadilly Theatre on 14 March 2014.
