Synopsis: "Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from 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. The show features all their hits including 'Sherry,' 'Big Girls Don't Cry,' 'Oh What A Night,' 'Walk Like A Man,' 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' and 'Working My Way Back To You.'"
The creative team behind Jersey Boys includes music supervision, vocal/dance arrangements & incidental music by Ron Melrose, orchestrations by Steve Orich, music coordination by John Miller, choreography by Sergio Trujillo, scenic design by Klara Zieglerova, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Steve Canyon Kennedy, projection design by Michael Clark, wig & hair design by Charles LaPointe, and fight direction by Steve Rankin.
Jersey Boys is produced off-Broadway by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, Latitude Link, and Tommy Mottola.
The Broadway production played its final performance at the August Wilson Theatre on January 15, 2017. The musical began previews on October 4, 2005, officially opening on November 6 and playing a total of 4,642 performances on the Great White Way.
