They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.
Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, Jersey Boys. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

A WORD ABOUT THE LANGUAGE IN Jersey Boys
In the beginning, there was Tommy DeVito, a loudmouthed hustler whose guitar work almost matched his swagger. He brought together Nick Massi, a bass player and singer with a genius for harmony, and Frankie Valli, a kid with one of the best voices for miles around. For a while, it seemed these Jersey Boys were more likely to wind up in Sing Sing than in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. After all, knocking over a jewelry store could bring in more cash than a Newark club date. This was life in Jersey. If you were a guy, you had a certain armor – armor used to protect and promote yourself on the street, armor that helped you survive. Armor comprised of the typical macho props – cars, crimes and curses. The cars and the crimes in Jersey Boys are part of the language of our show. The curse words are part of that language too – not the language you hear in church, or even in most Broadway shows, but the language of the Jersey streets. In an effort to be authentic, and to give you an authentic experience, we not only present the Four Seasons songs as they sounded on the records, we respectfully present the guys themselves as they sounded on the streets, warts and all – language included – so you can understand, in a more meaningful way, who and what they are.
“With Jersey Boys, the Broadway musical has finally done right by the jukebox, presenting the Four Seasons’ infectiously energetic 1960s tunes as they were intended to be performed” – Time Out New York
