Jersey Boys to open in Sydney September 18

JERSEY BOYS
WILL COMPLETE ITS RECORD-BREAKING
MELBOURNE RUN ON JULY 25
AND WILL 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.
 
THE AGE
“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

THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“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

THE AUSTRALIAN
“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.
