Due to overwhelming public demand, there will be an extra performance of the West End musical Jersey Boys in its final week at the Piccadilly Theatre on Thursday 23 March at 3pm. This week – commencing 13 February 2017 – the show has broken the house record for ticket sales in the history of the Piccadilly Theatre.
Jersey Boys will close on Sunday 26 March 2017 following nine years in London. The show is currently the sixth longest musical running in the West End. A second national tour of the show will open in December 2017 at the New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham.
Jersey Boys first opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 18 March 2008 and moved to the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2014. The first UK and Irish tour of Jersey Boys ran for 18 months, from 4 September 2014 to 5 March 2016. The second national tour will open at the New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham in December 2017.
The London cast of Jersey Boys is led by Matt Corner as Frankie Valli, Simon Bailey as Tommy DeVito, Declan Egan as Bob Gaudio and Matt Hunt as Nick Massi. Dayle Hodge plays the role of Frankie Valli at certain performances.
Also in the cast are Nicola Brazil, Stuart Dawes, Willemijn de Vries, Mark Dugdale, Leanne Garretty, Lucinda Gill, Nicky Griffiths, Will Haswell, Mark Heenehan, Mark Isherwood, Ben Jennings, Joe Maxwell, Nathaniel Morrison, Dan O’Brien, Chris Stoddart, Helen Ternent and Ben Wheeler.
Jersey Boys is the remarkable true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom from the wrong side of the tracks. These four boys from New Jersey became one of the most successful bands in pop history, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and sold 175 million records worldwide, all before they turned 30.
Winner of Broadway’s Tony, London’s Olivier and Australia’s Helpmann Awards for Best New Musical, Jersey Boys is the winner of 57 major awards worldwide. As well as still running on Broadway and in the West End, and on tour in the UK and Ireland, Jersey Boys can be seen in Las Vegas and across the United States on its US national tour.
Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.
