Jersey Boys

Prince Edward Theatre, Old Compton Street, London

A smash hit on Broadway, the musical Jersey Boys tells the story of how four blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks - Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi - became one of the biggest American pop bands of the 1960s, selling 175 million records worldwide.

The musical premiered on Broadway in November 2005 and won several Tony Awards at the 2006 ceremony, including Best Musical. The London production of Jersey Boys is staged by the entire Broadway creative team, led by director Des McAnuff (who won a Laurence Olivier Award in 1997 for his direction of The Who musical Tommy) and choreographer Sergio Trujillo.

Jersey Boys features many of The Four Seasons's well-known songs - characterised by the famous falsetto of Valli - including Sherry, Walk Like A Man, December 1963 (Oh What A Night), Bye Bye Baby and Big Girls Don't Cry.

The lead role of Valli is played by Ryan Molloy, who was part of the Laurence Olivier Award-winning ensemble of Jerry Springer The Opera. From 15 March 2011 Jon Lee will play Valli on certain performances. For a schedule, visit the Jersey Boys website.
