After nine splendid years in the West End limelight, it has been announced that the much-loved musical Jersey Boys is to close in March 2017
Jersey Boys’ reign to coming to an end at the Piccadilly Theatre
It has been confirmed that Jersey Boys will close at the Piccadilly Theatre on March 26, 2017. In December 2017, the musical will begin a second tour of the UK, starting at the New Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham.
Following huge success on Broadway where it opened in 2005, Jersey Boys came to the UK in March 2008, opening at the Prince Edward Theatre where it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
In 2014 the musical transferred to the Piccadilly Theatre where it has remained ever since. Jersey Boys is currently the sixth longest-running musical on the West End.
Referring to its run on the West End as “extraordinary”, Michael David, Jersey Boy’s producer said:
“We hoped that West End audiences would embrace it, but you never imagine it’ll multiply and resonate as much as it has. We couldn’t be more proud of the cast and crew who gave their all every night, and are profoundly grateful to the audiences who returned that energy without fail.”
Jersey Boys tells the incredible true story of the rise of fame of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons from the perspective of the band’s four members. The story tracks the band’s humble beginnings, its run-ins with the law, to its emergence as international superstars.
The musical features many classic Frankie Valli and the Four Season songs, including “Sherry”, “Beggin”, “December”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “1963 (Oh What a Night)” and many more.
You’ve still got time to see the award-winning musical Jersey Boys and celebrate the phenomenal rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons before the show closes in March.
