Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi, about a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who 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.
Jersey Boys opened on Broadway to critical acclaim on November 6, 2005 and continues to break box office records at the August Wilson Theatre. The Jersey Boys North American Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006 and played a 44-week, record-breaking run. The show is currently playing in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, London and in cities across the U.S. on a National Tour, and will open in Melbourne, Australia in March, 2009.
