Buy Jersey Boys musical tickets and you’ll be saying “Oh, What a Night”!
Oh What a Night! The incredible Jersey Boys musical is a theatrical sensation based on the life and music of The Four Seasons, currently filling the Trafalgar Theatre with the sounds of the group’s greatest hits. This incredible jukebox musical is a worldwide success that audiences can’t get enough of, thanks to its captivating and entertaining look at the real people behind the famous tunes. Since premiering at La Jolla Playhouse, San Diego in 2004, the Jersey Boys musical has remained as popular as ever and has been delighting West End audiences at its new home since 2021.
Taking audiences behind the scenes of the lives of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Jersey Boys follows the band from their working-class beginnings in New Jersey to international superstardom, and finally through the backstage drama that lead to their breakup. Amazingly, little was known about The Four Seasons members’ private lives before the musical was written, so this really was an unprecedented and alluring peek behind the scenes when it debuted nearly 20 years ago.
The musical features a raft of hit songs from the group’s heyday, including “Beggin’”, “Sherry”, “Walk Like A Man”, “December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Working My Way Back to You”. Every memorable number is performed live on stage by a cast so talented you’ll feel as if the real deal is in front of you, and at the end of the show you can even get on your feet for a dance along and standing ovation, just like a concert.
Familiar tunes, sharp choreography and a fascinating story that takes you through the highs and lows of fame and success make the Jersey Boys musical one of the most successful jukebox musicals of all time. An award-winning creative team worked their magic on the show and it paid off: the original Broadway production won four Tony Awards including Best Musical; the original West End production won an Olivier Award for Best Musical; and it has even won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
The team behind its success includes writers Marshall Brickman (Annie Hall; Manhattan) and Rick Elice (The Addams Family; The Cher Show), composer Bob Gaudio and lyricist Bob Crewe. In London, it is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations) and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (Ain’t Too Proud; Memphis the Musical) to ensure every performance is sharp, spot on and uncannily accurate!
Jersey Boys premiered on Broadway in 2005 to great acclaim, before transferring to London’s West End in 2008 where it played nine hugely successful years at the Prince Edward Theatre and Piccadilly Theatre. It couldn’t stay away for too long, and the current toe-tapping London production was the inaugural show at the newly restored Trafalgar Theatre. Formerly Trafalgar Studios, the venue reopened in April 2021 following a multi-million-pound redevelopment, merging its two smaller studio spaces into a single auditorium.
The cast of the Jersey Boys musical at Trafalgar Theatre is led by the fantastic Luke Suri as Frankie Valli, Declan Egan as Bob Gaudio, Peter Nash as Tommy DeVito and Karl James Wilson as Nick Massi.
One of the most iconic and well-known jukebox musicals of all time, audiences are still “Beggin’” for tickets to see the Jersey Boys musical and its irresistible tunes live on stage.
