Back by popular demand. More than 36,000 theatergoers cheered when Jersey Boys made its sell-out premiere in Tulsa in June 2012. And now, the show that made critics and audiences cheer will return to Tulsa May 24-29.

Jersey Boys is the award-winning musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide. Jersey Boys features several of their hit songs.

“The premiere engagement of Jersey Boys was a huge success in the summer of 2012,” said Ed Payton, CEO of Celebrity Attractions, presenter of Jersey Boys. “The economic impact for the city of Tulsa reached more than $7.3 million and the ancillary spending was well over $2.7 million.”

Directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys was written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudi, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

"Too good to be true!” raves the New York Post for Jersey Boys, the 2006 Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning Best Musical.

Jersey Boys features The Four Seasons’ hit songs Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Rag Doll, Oh What a Night, Walk Like A Man, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You and Working My Way Back to You.

The Jersey Boys U.S. National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006, and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. Jersey Boys is currently playing in New York; Las Vegas; London; and in cities across North America and the U.K. on National Tours.

In addition, the team includes Michael Clark (Projections Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Orich (Orchestrations) and Ron Melrose (Music Supervision, Vocal/Dance Arrangements and Incidental Music).
