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 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 musical will begin preview performances in the newly refurbished Trafalgar Theatre on 28 July 2021 with an official opening night on 10 August 2021.
Jersey Boys is produced in London by the Dodgers and Trafalgar Theatre Productions Ltd.
