JERSEY BOYS Extends Booking Period in West End Through October 2014
JERSEY BOYS, the smash hit musical, is now extending its booking period from March 2014 to October 2014 to coincide with its transfer to the Piccadilly Theatre. The last performance at the Prince Edward Theatre will be on Sunday 9 March and the show will re-open at the Piccadilly Theatre on Friday 14 March.
JERSEY BOYS opened in London in March 2008. The musical has now been seen by over 17.5 million people worldwide and is firmly established as one of the West End's longest running and most popular shows.
Michael David, on behalf of the producers, said, "We are thrilled to be celebrating our 6th birthday in London very soon in our new home at the Piccadilly Theatre. London theatergoers have warmly supported JERSEY BOYS since 2008, a tenure any show could only hope for. We feel, therefore, most privileged to now be able to continue our residence in London on Denman Street. The Piccadilly will fit JERSEY BOYS like a glove and audiences will hopefully enjoy it there accordingly."
JERSEY BOYS is the remarkable true story of Frankie Valli the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom from the wrong side of the tracks. These four boys from New Jersey became one of the most successful bands in pop history, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and sold 100 million records worldwide, all before they turned 30. The show is packed with their hits, including Beggin', 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), Bye Bye Baby, Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back to You, Fallen Angel, Rag Doll and Who Loves You.
JERSEY BOYS is the winner of 54 major awards worldwide, including the Olivier Award for Best New Musical. The show originally opened on Broadway in 2006, receiving the Tony Award for Best Musical. As well as still running on Broadway and in the West End, JERSEY BOYS can be seen in Las Vegas, across the United States on its US National Tour, and in Perth, Australia, and will open soon in Cape Town, South Africa and the Netherlands.
