Biography

Jersey Boys is a documentary-style musical based on the lives of one of the most successful ’60s rock ‘n roll groups, the Four Seasons. Jersey Boys won four 2006 Tony Awards, including one for Best Musical.

The musical opened on Broadway on November 6, 2005 at the August Wilson Theatre. Directed by Des McAnuff, artistic director at La Jolla Playhouse, the musical uses many of the group’s hit songs to tell the turbulent story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons’ rise to fame. Part concert, part Jukebox musical, Jersey Boys took in over $400,000 at the box office the day after it opened. Jersey Boys premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse on October 5, 2004 and ran through Jan. 16, 2005.

The first national Jersey Boys tour began on December 10, 2006 at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco. On May 3, 2007, that tour’s run ended in San Francisco to prepare for its Los Angeles premiere at the Ahmanson Theatre. The next day, the second national tour debuted at the Curran and is expected to end its run on Sept. 30, 2007, before transferring for a long run at Chicago’s LaSalle Bank Theatre through 2008. Meanwhile the original US Tour continues to make its way across the country. A special holiday return engagement production began previews at the Curran on Nov. 20, with an opening date set for Dec. 4 and closing Dec. 30. This production stars former Frankie alternate Rick Faugno as Frankie Valli, Andrew Rannells as Bob Gaudio, Bryan McElroy as Tommy DeVito and Jeff Leibow as Nick Massi. McElroy will assume the role of Tommy DeVito in the Chicago production in March.
