Jersey Boys announces Sydney season
By the time it ends its Melbourne season, the show would have played more than 450 performances.
“We are thrilled to bring Jersey Boys to Sydney,” said Michael David, from Dodger Theatricals.
“This story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons has captivated nearly nine million fans in productions worldwide, and now it is our fondest hope that Sydney will embrace Jersey Boys in the same way. The show is chock full of classic Four Seasons showstopping songs and a story that is all the more riveting because it’s true. Now with an extraordinary Australian cast, we believe Jersey Boys will engage theatergoers down under and send them dancing out of the Theatre Royal.”
Broadway’s gritty smash hit musical, Jersey Boys – The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, is the story of how four blue collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop sensations of all time.
Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi joined forces to become The Four Seasons, writing their own hits and developing their unique sound to sell over 175 million records before they were 30.
Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, choreography by Sergio Trujillo and directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys officially opened on Broadway to critical acclaim in November 2005.
The show opened in Melbourne in July last year.
