Jersey Boys will reopen the Trafalgar Theatre in London’s West End from 28 July 2021, it has been announced.
Winner of 65 major awards worldwide, including the Olivier Award and Tony Award for Best New Musical, Jersey Boys tells the true life story of 1960s American boy band Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. From the streets of New Jersey to the stratospheric heights of international stardom, the world fell in love with their harmonies, whilst back-stage it was anything but harmonious.
The smash-hit juke-box musical returns to the West End following a four-year hiatus in which it played two record-breaking UK and Ireland tours. The show premiered on Broadway in 2005 and in London in 2008 where it ran for nine years – six at the Prince Edward, followed by three at the Piccadilly Theatre.
The fan-favourite features all Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons hits including ‘Sherry,’ ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry,’ ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,’ ‘Oh, What a Night’ and ‘Working My Way Back to You’.
The new production at Trafalgar Theatre will reunite the original Tony Award winning Broadway creative team led by Director Des McAnuff alongside choreographer Sergio Trujillo. The musical will begin preview performances on 28 July 2021 with an official opening night on 10 August 2021.
The Grade II listed Trafalgar Theatre, formerly known as Trafalgar Studios has undergone a major multi-million pound refurbishment to return the venue to its original heritage design, reinstating art deco features and converting the two studios into one 630 seat performance space. Jersey Boys will be its inaugural production under the Trafalgar Theatre name.
Jersey Boys is produced in London by the Dodgers and Trafalgar Theatre Productions Ltd.
Casting for the production is to be announced.
