DETROIT – Back by popular demand as a special holiday attraction is the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical "Jersey Boys," the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, which makes its much-anticipated return to the Fisher Theatre on Dec. 12 through Jan. 6, 2013. Tickets are now on sale.
"Jersey Boys" is the winner of the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award, the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album, the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and the 2010 Helpmann Award for Best Musical (Australia). The premiere engagement of "Jersey Boys" in Detroit was an overwhelming success and played to 99-percent capacity for over five record breaking weeks for a total of 90,000 patrons. "Jersey Boys" worldwide has been seen by over 15 million people (as of July, 2012).
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 - a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who 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 30.
"Jersey Boys" opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on Nov. 6, 2005. The "Jersey Boys" First National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on Dec. 1, 2006, played a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. There are six current productions of "Jersey Boys" worldwide: New York; London; Las Vegas; Auckland, New Zealand; and two US National tours.
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).
