Broadway and West End smash hit musical Jersey Boys returns to Wolverhampton in 2018!

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre and the producers of award-winning West End and Broadway musical JERSEY BOYS are delighted to announce the return of the smash-hit show to Wolverhampton from Tuesday 28 August – Saturday 8 September 2018.

JERSEY BOYS will go on sale exclusively to Friends Of The Grand at 10am on Monday 10 July and public bookings open 10am on Monday 17 July 2017. To become a Friend Of The Grand, call 01902 42 92 12 or visit grandtheatre.co.uk.

JERSEY BOYS first opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 18 March 2008 and moved to the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2014. The Olivier Award-winning West End production closed on Sunday 26 March 2017 following nine amazing years in London. The first UK & Ireland Tour of JERSEY BOYS was a record-breaking success and ran for 18 months, previously visiting Wolverhampton in February 2016.

JERSEY BOYS is the remarkable true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom from the wrong side of the tracks.  These four boys from New Jersey became one of the most successful bands in pop history, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and sold 175 million records worldwide, all before they turned 30.  The show is packed with their hits, including Beggin’, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, December, 1963 (Oh What a Night), Big Girls Don’t Cry, My Eyes Adored You, Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got), Bye Bye Baby, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back to You, Fallen Angel, Rag Doll and Who Loves You.

Winner of Broadway’s Tony, London’s Olivier and Australia’s Helpmann Awards for Best New Musical, JERSEY BOYS is the winner of 57 major awards worldwide and has been seen by over 24 million people worldwide. JERSEY BOYS can currently be seen across the United States on its US National Tour.  The Broadway production closed on 15 January 2017 as the 12th longest running show in Broadway history.

JERSEY BOYS is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.  The National / UK & Ireland Tour production is staged by the entire original Broadway creative team, led by director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo, with scenic design by Klara Zieglerova, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting by Howell Binkley, sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy and projection design by Michael Clark.  The orchestrations are by Steve Orich and the music supervision and vocal arrangements by Ron Melrose.

Scott Bird, Press & PR Manager at the Grand Theatre said; “it’s hugely exciting to be welcoming Jersey Boys back to Wolverhampton. The show enjoyed phenomenal success in 2016 and audiences have been very vocal in expressing their wishes for the show to return ever since. The show will form part of a very special season of musicals throughout 2018 some of which are already on sale and others that are soon to be announced.”

The UK & Ireland Tour of JERSEY BOYS is produced by Dodger Theatricals and Ambassador Theatre Group with Joseph J Grano, Pelican Group, Latitude Link, Rick Steiner and Howard Panter.
