About Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys follows 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 and is the perfect highlight to a London weekend break.
Jersey Boys features all the classic hits: “SHERRY”, “BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY”, “CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU”,“BYE BYE BABY (BABY, GOODBYE)”, WORKING MY WAY BACK TO YOU”, WALK LIKE A MAN”, DECEMBER 1963 (OH WHAT A NIGHT)” and more.
What Theatre Breaks says:
Over the past twenty years there have been a lot of tribute shows in the West End, so when you hear about a show telling the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons that is what we all expected. But this is not a tribute show – although no tribute show could do a better job of re-creating the sound of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
This is owed, in part, to the honestly interesting and action-packed life of the four Jersey Boys – both before, during and after their heyday – although, thanks to their music, that has never truly passed. PLUS it is also a story that not many people know, making it a rare thing indeed in the West End – a show you come out of knowing more than when you went in!
Of course, Jersey Boys’ music speaks for itself. And the quality of the performances from the four guys is outstanding – but I guess no more than you would expect from a smash-hit musical on the West End stage!
The cast was led by Ben Joyce as Frankie Valli, Adam Bailey as Bob Gaudio, Karl James Wilson as Nick Massi and Benjamin Yates as Tommy De Vito.

The Jersey Boys is a interesting musical full of facts I never knew and terrific tracks. The actors play the parts with passion and skill. Well worth seeing
My family and I went to see The Jersey Boy's and we all loved this wonderful upbeat musical. We would all really like to go and see it again.
Teenager in the 1960's so music was of my time. Fabulous music and highly talented cast
BUT totally unecessary bad language.
New Jersey USA or a working class lad in the UK you did not in those day's swear in front of ladies, women or children. If you did so it was a clip around the ears. Painful but you didn't forget.
Absolutely do not be tempted to take children along.
Best show i have ever seen and i have seen a few. Looking forward to going to see it again soon. Cast are all fabulous and keep you engaged throughout the show. Muis is fantastic. Highly recommend that you book this show
