Jersey Boys is more than just a jukebox musical; it is the Tony and Laurence Olivier Award winning production that tells the tale of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons as if from the perspective of the band members themselves.
Following a hugely successful opening on Broadway, Jersey Boys arrived on the West End in 2008 and was a firm audience favourite until it closed in April 2017.
The show tells the tale of one of the world's most successful pop bands throughout their many stages of success and hardship. At the beginning, the "Jersey boys" are four down on their luck lads who are in and out of prison and from here, the audience watch how these men manage to turn their luck around in spite of their inner demons.
Jersey Boys was developed under the leadership of original Four Seasons band member, Bob Guadio, who hired writers Rick Elice and Marshall Brickman to pen the book. Directed by Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys promises to be very much a true to life portrayal of life in the band.
You do not need to be a Four Seasons fan to enjoy the fantastic music in the show, which includes the vast majority of the quartet's hit songs such as "Sherry," "December 1963 (Oh What a Night!)" "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Can't Take My Eyes off You," and "Bye, Bye, Baby, Goodbye."
Jam packed with hit tunes, an eye catching set and expert choreography, Jersey Boys made for one of the most fun nights out in London.
Fans of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons will love hearing the iconic songs performed live while getting the inside scoop on the group. If you enjoy a juke box musical about a band then this is the ideal show for you. Fans of Sunny Afternoon or those who enjoyed Let It Be but wished it had a bit more of a story will not be disappointed. Please note this show is recommended for ages 12+ due to strong language and adult themes.
