It's terrific. Jersey Boys is dynamically alive in music while, as a drama, it catches the very texture, almost the smell, of its time.

Just announced, the Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award-winning Best Musical JERSEY BOYS will welcome Mauricio Pérez and Dominic Scaglione Jr., alternating in the role of "Frankie Valli" at all performances beginning this week.
Joseph Leo Bwarie played his final performance in the role on Sunday, April 24.
Mr. Perez, who has previously appeared on the New York stage in Miss Abigail's Guide ... and Altar Boyz, takes on the role of Frankie having previously performed as a swing in the Broadway cast. A veteran of the Broadway cast, Mr. Scaglione has also played the role of Frankie in the Chicago & Las Vegas companies.
Having recently celebrated ten years on Broadway, JERSEY BOYS has been seen by over 23 million people worldwide. It is currently playing in New York, Las Vegas (the longest running Broadway musical in Las Vegas history), London and in cities across North America on national tour.
JERSEY BOYS is written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, and is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo.
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 the recipient of the 2006 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2009 Olivier Award for Best Musical. The Original Broadway Cast Recording, produced by Bob Gaudio, received the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album and has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The Broadway production also won the 2006 Outer Critics Circle & Drama League Awards for Best Musical. The London production also won the 2009 UK People's Choice and What's on Stage Awards for Best New Musical. The Toronto production is the winner of three Dora Awards, including the Audience Choice Award for Outstanding Production. The Australian production is 2010 recipient of the Helpmann Award for Australia's Best Musical and seven Victorian Green Room Awards. The South African production is the 2014 recipient of the 3 South Africa Naledi Theatre Awards including Best Musical.
