Las Vegas – Tickets go on sale Sunday, August 26 for the Las Vegas production of the Tony Award-winning hit musical, JERSEY BOYS, slated to open at the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Performances begin April 4, 2008.
JERSEY BOYS, which opened to rave reviews on November 6, 2005, continues to set weekly box office records and continues to be one of the top grossing shows on Broadway. JERSEY BOYS is the winner of four 2006 Tony Awards® including Best Musical. The original Broadway cast recording on Rhino Records won the Grammy Award for Best Show Recording and remains one of the best-selling show CDs in the US.
JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story 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 show features such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” “Oh, What a Night,” and many more.
JERSEY BOYS is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The Las Vegas production will be staged by the entire original Broadway creative team, led by director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo. JERSEY BOYS has scenic design by Klara Zieglerova, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting by Howell Binkley, sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy and projections design by Michael Clark.
