Photo Coverage: JERSEY BOYS Toronto Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary!

The Toronto Production of Jersey Boys celebrated its 1 Year Anniversary on August 20th with a special performance and a visit from Bob Gaudio (the "final piece of the puzzle" for those who have seen the show).  The event was a smash hit, with Boston Pizza joining in on the fun and giving out free pizza slices at locations close to the Toronto Centre for the Arts to celebrate.  The cast joined Mr. Gaudio and others after the show for a party at Boston Pizza, and BWW was given exclusive access to all the fun!

Jersey Boys is now a success all over the globe, with productions running in various parts of the US (including Broadway), the UK and Australia.  The Toronto production has been getting rave reviews since it opened, including wonderful remarks about the almost all Canadian Cast. 

"In the last year, more than 500,000 people have been through the newly revitalized main stage theatre of the Toronto Centre for the Arts to experience the joy of Jersey Boys.  What pleases me most, though, is the number of multi-generational families who attend the show together, many returning time and time again" said Aubrey Dan, President of Dancap Productions Inc.

Along with the Anniversary Celebrations came news of an extension through to November 29th, 2009 which is fantastic news for the cast and crew of Dancap's latest hit.  With more tickets on sale, this is a great opportunity to get a chance to see Toronto's Jersey Boys in action!

Mr. Gaudio, a member of the original Four Seasons, was on hand for the cake cutting and celebrations.  He met with various cast members including Quinn VanAntwerp, who plays Gaudio in the Toronto Production.  Mr. Gaudio is the man behind the music in the show and it was fantastic to see him celebrating with the cast and crew.

Jersey Boys Toronto tickets can be purchased for as little as $25, by calling 416.644.3665 or online at  A limited number of same day rush seats are also available in person for $20 at the box office.  The box office is located at 5040 Yonge Street in Toronto.
