MINNEAPOLIS—Hennepin Theatre Trust announced the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical JERSEY BOYS, the story Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, returns to Minneapolis as part of the 2017-2018 Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin Season April 24-29, 2018 at the historic Orpheum Theatre (910 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis).
JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It’s the true story of 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 thirty. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”
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).
