Jersey Boys held a Tony Awards party at the Hard Rock Cafe on June 11th, the night of the Tonys, to celebrate their very successful showing in the awards.

In all, the musical won four of the coveted statues, including Best Musical. Also, John Lloyd Young won Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his turn as Frankie Valli, while Christian Hoff took home the award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical as Tommy DeVito. Jersey Boys also scooped up the Best Lighting Design of a Musical award.

Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, and is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff. The show is currently playing at Broadway's August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue). The show "is the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: Frankie Valli (Lloyd Young), Bob Gaudio (Daniel Reichard), Tommy DeVito (Hoff), and Nick Massi (J. Robert Spencer). This is the story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American 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," state press notes.
