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.

Clive Barnes, New York Post

Why See Jersey Boys?

Oh what a night!

How did a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time?

Jersey boys is the smash hit jukebox musical that gives us the true, sometimes gritty and always spectacularly entertaining story of falsetto idol Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. The blue collar boys in the shiny Lurex suits strode onto the scene in 1960, wowing the public for 20 years with hits such as 'Big Girls Don't Cry,'Oh What a Night,' 'Walk like a Man,' and many more but before fame and fortune, comes the journey to stardom.

Created by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, they wanted to create a traditional 'documentary' style story of the blue collar stars and Jersey Boys came from interviews with the surviving members of the band, cemented by Tommy Devito's addition: 'Don't listen to those guys. I'll tell you what really happened.' Since its debut in 2005, Jersey Boys has become a must see, embedding itself in the Broadway landscape, playing over 3,000 performances and winning 4 Tonys, proving that the rags to riches, to rags again, story is an ever enduring theme!

What is Jersey Boys About?

Told in four parts, each member has an act to tell his side of the story, even it if it clashes with the others. We get the real story of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, from humble beginnings to the thrill superstardom and back again, via loan sharks, jail time, tense dealings with the Mob and the strength of friendship, soundtracked by the irresistibly recognisable hits that keep you coming back for more.

Did you know?

The Four Seasons sold over 175 million records worldwide, all before they were 30 years old!
