The Hartford engagement of JERSEY BOYS, which opened to rave reviews on Friday, February 6, broke the box office record – twice in a row – at the Bushnell Center, where it just completed its triumphant run on February 22, 2009.  From there, the national tour will play Rochester, NY from February 25 through March 15, 2009.  For the week ending February 15, JERSEY BOYS grossed $1,346,126, breaking the previous house record of $1,341,958 held by Wicked.  For the week ending February 22, JERSEY BOYS grossed $1,429,211, breaking its own record from the week before.

 

The cast of JERSEY BOYS is lead by Erik Bates (Tommy DeVito), Joseph Leo Bwarie (Frankie Valli), Josh Franklin (Bob Gaudio), original Broadway cast member Steve Gouveia (Nick Massi), with  Jonathan Hadley and Joseph Siravo.

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 opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on November 6, 2005.  The JERSEY BOYS National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006, played a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and is still breaking house records in cities across North America.  There are six current productions of JERSEY BOYS:  New York, London, Chicago, Las Vegas, Toronto, a US National tour, and a seventh production will open in Melbourne, Australia in July, 2009. 

 

JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It’s a journey 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 thirty.

 

The JERSEY BOYS design and production team comprises Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (winner of the 2006 Tony Award® for his Lighting Design of JERSEY BOYS), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projections Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Orich (Orchestrations) and Ron Melrose (Music Direction, Vocal Arrangements & Incidental Music).

 

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of JERSEY BOYS was produced by Bob Gaudio, and was recently certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The cast recording is now available on Rhino Records. JERSEY BOYS: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons (Broadway Books) is the official handbook to the smash Broadway hit.
