Jersey Boys is the sensational, award-winning musical that tells the incredible story of one of the most successful rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. The musical, which has been seen by more than 20 million people worldwide, has won 55 major awards worldwide, features music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe
Jersey Boys is presented in a documentary style format that draws you into the heart of the story, where you’ll find out how the band was formed, how they invented a new sound and how they found fame and fortune against all the odds. Jersey Boys is the true-life story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
The musical is split into four ‘seasons’ and each segment is narrated by a different band member. The first segment is spring and Tommy De Vito introduces himself and invites the audience to join him as he begins to tell his part of the story. The next season is summer and Bob Guadio takes over as the narrator where he contradicts some of what Tommy De Vito has said about him. Nick Massi narrates the fall section and this is where tensions rise as the band start to fall apart.
The final section, summer, is narrated by Frankie Valli and in the finale, Bob Crewe wraps up the story with an anecdote. All four members of the group then return to the stage to address the audience.
Jersey Boys features plenty of the Four Season’s hits including ‘Walk Like a Man’ ‘Beggin’, ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ and ‘Rag Doll’.
