Jersey Boys, The Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Award-winning musical ended its record-breaking, 11-year run, yesterday after 4,642 performances.
Jersey Boys on Broadway was the 12th longest-running show in Broadway history. It has earned $2billion and attracted audiences of over 24 million people.
While the Broadway cast has much to celebrate, it is always sad to see such a joyous show bring down the curtain for the final time. But fans of the West End production will have to hurry to see it one last time as the London production is slated to close at The Piccadilly Theatre in 8 weeks, March 26th, 2017.
The current cast of Jersey Boys is led by Matt Corner as Frankie Valli, Simon Bailey as Tommy DeVito, Declan Egan as Bob Gaudio and Matt Hunt as Nick Massi.
“Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story—a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.” The show features all their hits, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “Working My Way Back To You.”
Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, direction by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
