Award-winning musical Jersey Boys is heading out on a new tour of the UK and Ireland this year, arriving at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford in March 2022.
Michael Pickering and Lewis Griffiths return as Frankie Valli and Nick Massi
respectively, with Blair Gibson as Bob Gaudio and Dalton Wood as Tommy DeVito. Luke Suri will
play Frankie Valli at certain performances.
Jersey Boys, written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics
by Bob Crewe, tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. This Olivier Award-winning, true-life phenomenon follows four guys from New Jersey discovering a new sound that nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s too good to be true.
The show is packed with their hits, including Beggin’, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, December, 1963 (Oh What a Night), Big Girls Don’t Cry, My Eyes Adored You, Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got), Bye Bye Baby, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back to You, Fallen Angel, Rag Doll and Who Loves You.
There’s no doubt about it, the musical is an absolute hit success – it’s the winner of 65 major awards and has been seen by over 27 million people worldwide. It’s the 12th longest running show in Broadway history and, lucky for everyone seeing the show this time around, the tour will be staged by the entire original Broadway creative team, led by the Tony Award-winning team of director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo.
I’ll be completely honest, I think Jersey Boys has a lot of hype around it and when I last saw the show I didn’t really get why it was so popular. However, I also thought that the first time I saw Mamma Mia! but then, on second viewing, I absolutely loved it. I’m really excited to catch Jersey Boys on this tour and hope to see it in a whole new light! See you there?
