Broadway San Jose, a Nederlander Presentation, welcomes the South Bay premiere of the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical “Jersey Boys,” the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, performing at the Center for the Performing Arts in San Jose for one week only – July 15-20.
“Jersey Boys” is the winner of the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award®, the 2006 Grammy Award® for Best Musical Show Album, the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and the 2010 Helpmann Award for Best Musical (Australia).
Directed by two-time Tony® Award-winner Des McAnuff, “Jersey Boys” is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
“Jersey Boys” is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how 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. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide - all before they were 30. 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” opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on November 6, 2005. The “Jersey Boys” US National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006, and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. “Jersey Boys” is currently playing in New York; London; Las Vegas; Utrecht, The Netherlands; on tour in the UK and across North America. “Jersey Boys” worldwide has been seen by over 20 million people (as of March 2014).
