BWW WEST END: JERSEY BOYS Celebrates at 2009 Olivier Awards

The London production of the Tony®, Grammy® and Olivier Award-winning musical, Jersey Boys, celebrates one year in the West End today. Jersey Boys opened to critical acclaim on March 18, 2008 at the Prince Edward Theatre in London. The West End production has won the Olivier Award, UK People's Choice Award, and the What's on Stage Award for Best New Musical.

The actors who play the Four Seasons Ryan Molloy, Stephen Ashfield, Glenn Carter and Philip Bulcock have rocked the West End with their stunning vocals. Our West End video partners, Reelkandi.tv were there to bring you all the excitement of Jersey Boys at the Olivier Awards- right here on BWW TV!

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons - Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito - and how this group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American and International 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 is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The London production is staged by the entire original Broadway creative team, led by director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo. Jersey Boys has scenic design by Klara Zieglerova, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting by Howell Binkley, sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy and projections design by Michael Clark. The orchestrations are by Steve Orich and the music supervision and vocal arrangements by Ron Melrose.

Jersey Boys is produced in London by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, in association with Latitude Link, Rick Steiner, DSHT Inc, David Ian, Howard Panter and Michael Watt.

Jersey Boys opened on Broadway on November 6, 2005 to critical acclaim at the August Wilson Theatre where it continues to break box office records three years later. Jersey Boys won the 2006 Tony Award® for Best Musical and the 2006 Grammy Award® for Best Musical Show Album. Jersey Boys is now playing in New York, London, Chicago, Las Vegas, Toronto, in cities across the U.S. on a National Tour and upcoming in Melbourne, Australia.

Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons (Broadway Books) is the official handbook to the smash Broadway hit. The Jersey Boys cast album has been certified Gold.
