Photos: 'Jersey Boys' Tour Opens in Seattle

Broadway's smash hit Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, performs at The 5th Avenue Theatre December 5, 2007 - January 12, 2008. Directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys won four 2006 Tony Awards including Best Musical and remains one of the top-grossing shows in America. On October 1, when tickets went on sale for the Seattle premiere, all 5th Avenue Theatre box office records were broken.

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. 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. It features their hit songs including "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."

Jersey Boys is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

The cast for the Seattle engagement is lead by Erich Bergen (Bob Gaudio), Steve Gouveia (Nick Massi), Christopher Kale Jones (Frankie Valli) and Deven May (Tommy DeVito) as The Four Seasons, with John Altieri and Joseph Siravo. The ensemble includes Miles Aubrey, Erik Bates, Holly Ann Butler, Sarah Darling, Christopher Deangelis, Jennifer Evans, Eric Gutman, Jamie Karen, Nathan Klau, Brandon Matthieus, Michael Pearce, Zachary Prince, Courter Simmons, Taylor Sternberg and Josh Weinstein.

The Jersey Boys design and production team comprises Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (winner of the 2006 Tony Award for his Lighting Design of JERSEY BOYS), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projections Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Orich (Orchestrations) and Ron Melrose (Music Direction, Vocal Arrangements & Incidental Music). Jersey Boys is produced by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, with Latitude Link and Rick Steiner.
