The production also includes Dianna Marie Barger, Ben Bogan, Candi Boyd, Tristen Buettel, Wade Dooley, Alex Dorf, Andrew Frace, Natalie Gallo, John Gardiner, Wes Hart, Joey LaVarco, Austin Owen, Michelle Rombola, Paul Sabala, and Kit Treece.


Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff, and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Sergio Trujillo. The production includes Music Supervision, Vocal/Dance Arrangements & Incidental Music by Ron Melrose, and Orchestrations by Steve Orich.


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. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”


Jersey Boys opened in New York on November 6, 2005, and by the time it closed there on January 15, 2017, it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd StreetGreaseFiddler on the Roof, and The Producers. Blessed by awards all over the world, Jersey Boys has been seen by over 27 million people.


The design and production team includes Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (Lighting Design), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projection Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig & Hair Design), Steve Rankin (Fight Director), Richard Hester (Production Supervisor), John Miller (Music Coordinator), Tara Rubin Casting / Merri Sugarman, C.S.A.
