The Marlowe Welcomes the Return of JERSEY BOYS This Autumn

Jersey Boys is the true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom from the wrong side of the tracks. The 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 175 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.

Winner of Broadway's Tony, London's Olivier and Australia's Helpmann awards for Best New Musical, Jersey Boys has also won 57 major awards worldwide and has been seen by more than 25 million people around the globe.

The four leading men have all previously performed their Jersey Boy roles to great acclaim, in the West End, Australia, and on UK tours.
