On Stage: Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys: The Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning smash hit musical!
Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.
Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, Jersey Boys. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.
FEATURING THE LEGENDARY TOP TEN HITS:
“Sherry” • “Big Girls Don’t Cry” • “Walk Like A Man” • “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” • “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night)”
Jersey Boys is directed by Des McAnuff, with book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.
“Too good to be true! It’s terrific! The cast is plain wonderful. The book is as tight and absorbing as an Arthur Miller play. Jersey Boys is a show dynamically alive in music while, as a drama, it catches the very texture, almost the actual smell, of its time.”- Clive Barnes, New York Post
“The crowd goes wild. I’m talking about the real crowd at the August Wilson Theatre, who seem to have forgotten what year it is or how old they are. And everything that had led up to that curtain call feels as real and vivid as the sting of your hands clapping together.” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Oh, what a fantastic night you’ll have! A phenomenal hit, with more show-stopping hit songs than any new show on Broadway. It’s impossible not to love Jersey Boys and this amazing cast. A spectacular, behind-the-scenes tell-all pop musical.” –Pat Collins, UPN 9 TV
About Stage 1
Constructed on the site of the third Madison Square Garden (1925-1968), New World Stages was originally built as the Loews Cineplex Entertainment movie theater (1994-2001) in Worldwide Plaza. Following substantial renovations, the theater re-opened as Dodger Stages in 2004 and was renamed New World Stages on March 16, 2006. The theater complex has housed many commercial theatrical productions, as well as numerous corporate events, readings, and concerts.
The architects were Beyer, Blinder, and Belle. The theatre designers were Sachs Morgan, and the interior designer was Klara Zieglerova. The largest Off-Broadway theater size in New York, Stage 1’s red velvet seats in a traditional orchestra/mezzanine arrangement invite audiences to enjoy their favorite productions in an intimate environment, with ample leg room and excellent sightlines.
