Jersey Boys to open in Sydney September 18


JERSEY BOYS, the Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award-winning international hit musical, will complete its record-breaking run in Melbourne, Australia at the Princess Theatre on July 25, and will open in Sydney at the Theatre Royal on September 18, 2010 (previews begin September 3).
JERSEY BOYS, the most successful musical to play the Princess Theatre in Melbourne since The Phantom of the Opera, opened ‘down under’ to critical acclaim on Saturday, July 4.th As of July 25, the musical, which received 10 Victorian Green Room award nominations, will have played 453 performances.  To date, JERSEY BOYS has broken the box office record of the Princess Theatre three times, making it the highest weekly gross ever achieved.
“Jersey Boys has a dramatic range almost as extensive as Valli’s three-octave voice. It’s full of laugh-out-loud wisecracks, multi-dimensional characters and a narrative arc that goes well beyond the basic “poor guys make good”. If My Eyes Adored You and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You can’t convince you of these boys’ place in pop history — ah, fuggedaboutit.” – John Bailey

“If the opening night response is anything to go by, Jersey Boys – due in Sydney next year – will be around for quite a few seasons. The tunes Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like A Man, Rag Doll and Bye, Bye, Baby are delivered with precision and toe-tapping verve.” – Bryce Hallett

“Des McAnuff’s direction features seamlessly slick transformations and has moments that are pure showbiz genius. But what really gives this show oomph are the performances. It’s Entertainment with a capital E, and it gives you plenty of bang for your buck.” – Alison Croggon

The Australian production of JERSEY BOYS stars Bobby Fox as Frankie Valli, Scott Johnson as Tommy DeVito, Glaston Toft as Nick Massi and Stephen Mahy as Bob Gaudio.
JERSEY BOYS is the winner of the 2006 Tony Award® for Best Musical. The Original Cast Recording of JERSEY BOYS won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album and in its award winning week topped the Billboard Album charts.
JERSEY BOYS is written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, and is directed by two-time Tony® Award-winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo.
JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi, about a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who 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. JERSEY BOYS features their hit songs Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Rag Doll, Oh What a Night and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, among many others.
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. In addition to Melbourne, the show can now be seen in New York, Las Vegas, London, Toronto and in cities across the U.S. on a National Tour.
