Synopsis

2006 Tony Winner for Best Musical

How did four blue-collar kids become one of the greatest successes in pop music history? Find out at Broadway’s runaway smash-hit, Jersey Boys. The Tony Award-wining Best Musical of the 2006 takes you up the charts, across the country and behind the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. As Clive Barnes in the New York Post says, “It’s just too good to be true.” Discover the secret of a 40-year friendship: four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark to the heights of stardom. And experience electrifying performances of the golden greats that took these guys all the way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Dawn,” “My Eyes Adored You,” and more. The New York Times says, “The crowd goes wild!”
