News: Multi-award winning musical Jersey Boys to tour UK and Ireland

Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning musical Jersey Boys is set to tour the UK and Ireland once again, opening at the New Wimbledon Theatre from 25 November.

The production is also set to play a West End residency at Trafalgar Theatre this summer.

A global smash-hit, Jersey Boys is penned by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.

Casting for the tour is yet to be announced.

Taking audiences behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, the show follows four guys from joining in New Jersey to singing their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard, and the radio just couldn’t get enough of it. But while their harmonies were perfect onstage, off stage it was a very different story, a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

The musical includes hit songs such as “Beggin'”, “Sherry”, “Walk Like A Man”, “December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “My Eyes Adored You”, “Bye Bye Baby”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, “Working My Way Back to You”, “Fallen Angel”, “Who Loves You” and many more.

This new UK and Ireland tour will be staged by the entire original Broadway creative team, led by the Tony Award-winning team of director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo, with scenic design by Klara Zieglerova, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting by Howell Binkley, sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy and projections design by Michael Clark.  The orchestrations are by Steve Orich and the music supervision and vocal arrangements by Ron Melrose.
