The international hit musical JERSEY BOYS transfered from the Prince Edward Theatre to London’s Piccadilly Theatre, with opening night on the 14th March 2014.
Jersey Boys has won over 55 major awards worldwide, including the Olivier Award for Best New Musical. The original London production opened in February 2008, following the Tony Award Winning 2005 Broadway premiere. The full New York creative team reimagined the show at Cameron Mackintosh’s Prince Edward Theatre, where it will have enjoyed 6 successful years once it transfers. The original London cast included Ryan Molloy as Frankie Valli, Stephen Ashfield as Bob Gaudio, Glenn Carter as Tommy DeVito and Stuart Milligan as DeCarlo
Jersey Boys has now been seen by over 4 million people worldwide, in productions in cities as far reaching as Las Vegas, Sydney, Chicago and Toronto. The Piccadilly Theatre in London’s West End will be a perfect venue for the lively show, following on from such successful jukebox musicals such as ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and ‘Viva forever’.
The hit musical tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and their remarkable rise to stardom as they became one of the most successful bands in history. Told in four segments, the show charts the humble beginnings, rise and inevitable fall of the band, who went on to sell over 100 million records around the world and were eventually inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Jersey Boys is an honest portrayal of how four men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey managed to find a unique sound. The musical follows their triumphs, heartaches, headaches and relationships and is one of the most inspirational stories of any pop group.
This production showcases a string of incredible hit songs, including instantly recognisable tunes and some you had forgotten you knew. BEGGIN’, CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU, OH WHAT A NIGHT, WALK LIKE A MAN, BYE BYE BABY (BABY GOODBYE), SHERRY, BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY and countless others await you at the Piccadilly Theatre.
