Jersey Boys at the Palace, Waterbury, through Oct. 13

Directed by two-time Tony® Award-winner Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys won the 2006 Tony® Award for “Best Musical,” the 2006 Grammy Award® for “Best Musical Show Album,” the 2009 Olivier Award for “Best New Musical,” the 2010 Helpmann Award for “Best Musical” (Australia), and continues to break box office records on Broadway and across North America. It has been seen by over 16 million people worldwide (as of September 2012). 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. The musical details 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 sound, 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 November 6, 2005. The musical’s First National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006, played a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. Jersey Boys is currently playing in New York; London; Las Vegas; Brisbane, Australia; and across the US on two National tours, and it is coming soon to Adelaide, Australia; Singapore; and Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Jersey Boys, produced by Bob Gaudio, 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. Seasons Greetings: A Jersey Boys Christmas, a new holiday CD featuring international cast members of Jersey Boys, produced by Bob Gaudio, is now available on Rhino Records.

Jersey Boys is produced by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, with Latitude Link and Rick Steiner.
