Jersey Boys
YOU KNOW THE SONGS. NOW DISCOVER THEIR STORY

They were just four ordinary guys from New 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. JERSEY BOYS THE STORY OF FRANKIE VALLI & THE FOUR SEASONS Featuring the hits: December 1963 (Oh What A Night), Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, Bye Bye Baby, Big Girls Don't Cry and many more. WINNER of 57 major awards worldwide, including the Olivier Award for BEST NEW MUSICAL.
"Jersey Boys is a blue-collar, meat-and-potatoes, straight-up-no-chaser kind of show, and I mean that as a compliment. It has a quality you rarely find in musicals - gritty honesty - as well as the best collection of pop hits since Mamma Mia! Jersey Boys superbly captures the thrills and tensions of four testosterone-charged young men discovering fame and fortune after years of dogged failure. It is excellent, too, on the pressures of life on the road, and the abiding strength of male friendships. There are a host of excellent gags... and Des McAnuff's strong, no-frills production, with its clever use of pop art imagery, is full of heart and humanity. But it is the music most people will go for, and it is delivered with high fidelity, from cheesy novelty numbers to classic smash hits. Overpaid, oversexed and over here, it will, I suspect, be some time before London says Bye Bye Baby (Baby Goodbye) to the phenomenal Jersey Boys." Charles Spencer, The Telegraph ★★★★

"The show, with its sharp edge and documentary style, stunned Broadway - and it did just that again on Tuesday night in London. The audience rose as one at the end of a show that brought memories flooding back to many. This is an utterly wonderful show full of vitality, pace and power. It is full of atmosphere and I half expected to see Tony Soprano and his-chums leading Tuesday night-s great ovation. And it is one of the shows which, as you go home, still has your head filled with its magical songs." Paul Callan, Daily Express ★★★★★

"There are two remarkable things about Jersey Boys, the Frankie Valli bio-musical which had a splashy opening last night. The first is the fluting voice of Ryan Molloy who plays 1960s pop canary Valli and sings like a man possessed. The second is the fact that a show with quite so many cliches and such a humdrum plot still manages to elicit a tear or two. This is a big thumper of a show with fantastic songs. Some of the language is unnecessarily bad - the producers should not sell tickets to under-teens. But when the music is this good you can forgive a show almost anything." Quentin Letts, Daily Mail ★★★★
JERSEY BOYS ANNOUNCES CLOSING DATE (30 SEPTEMBER 2016)

One of London's best loved musicals, Jersey Boys, will close at the Piccadilly Theatre on Sunday 26 March 2017 following nine amazing years in London. The show is currently the sixth longest musical running in the West End. The producers are very proud that London has taken the show to its heart and they are equally delighted to announce that a second national tour will open in December 2017.

Producer Michael David said, "When we brought Jersey Boys here nine years ago, we hoped it was a good idea and that West End audiences would embrace it, but you never imagine it'll multiply and resonate as much as it has. We couldn't be more proud of the cast and crew who gave their all every night, and are profoundly grateful to the audiences who returned that energy without fail. Our time in London has been extraordinary, and we hope audiences around the UK will continue to embrace Jersey Boys as we bring the show to their hometowns."

The hit musical first opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre in March 2008 and moved to the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2014.
