Jersey Boys transfers to Piccadilly Theatre

Theatre news

IN MARCH 2014, the long-running musical Jersey Boys will transfer from its current home, the Prince Edward Theatre, to the Piccadilly Theatre.

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons – the “rags-to-rock-to-riches” tale of four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark to the heights of stardom.

It features many of the group’s hits from the 60s – Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Oh, What a Night, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You and more.

Jersey Boys opened at the August Wilson Theater in New York in November 2005 and the following year won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actor in a Musical and Best Lighting Design of a Musical.

The London production opened at the Prince Edward Theatre in March 2008, recently celebrating its fifth birthday in the West End. In 2009, it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

As well as Broadway and the West End, it can currently be seen in Las Vegas, across the States on its US National Tour, as well as in Perth, Australia. The show is scheduled to open soon in Cape Town and the Netherlands.

Viva Forever! continues at the Piccadilly Theatre until June 29, 2013. It will be followed by Dirty Dancing.
