JERSEY BOYS Featured on NY-1 ON STAGE This Weekend


Tune in to NY-1’s “On Stage” this weekend to watch a segment on the global success of the smash hit JERSEY BOYS.  The Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning musical is playing to sold-out houses  on 3 continents with 7 productions worldwide:  New York, London, Toronto, Melbourne, Las Vegas, Chicago and the US Tour.

The JERSEY BOYS piece on NY-1’s “On Stage” will air at the following times:  Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8 at 9:30am and 7:30pm and Monday, November 9 at 9:30pm and 12:30am.

Celebrating 4 years on Broadway, JERSEY BOYS opened at the August Wilson Theatre to critical acclaim on November 6, 2005. 

JERSEY BOYS is the winner of the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award®, the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, and most recently, the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

Directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Des McAnuff, JERSEY BOYS is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It’s a journey of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide - all before they were thirty.

The JERSEY BOYS design and production team comprises Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (winner of the 2006 Tony Award® for his Lighting Design of JERSEY BOYS), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projections Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Orich (Orchestrations) and Ron Melrose (Music Direction, Vocal Arrangements & Incidental Music).

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of JERSEY BOYS was produced by Bob Gaudio, and was recently certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. The cast recording is now available on Rhino Records. JERSEY BOYS: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons (Broadway Books) is the official handbook to the smash Broadway hit.
