Regina Ruhberg, Director of Performances & Events, said, “There was no question we would bring back JERSEY BOYS for our 20th performing arts season. This show was our largest blockbuster to date when it first toured through Sioux Falls. It’s a must-see with songs you know and love and characters who bring this iconic story to life in a brilliantly entertaining way. This show is the perfect way to celebrate 20 years.”
JERSEY BOYS is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. 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. 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.”
JERSEY BOYS opened in New York on November 6, 2005 and by the time it closed over 11 years later on January 15, 2017, it was the 12th longest-running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd STREET, GREASE, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and THE PRODUCERS. JERSEY BOYS returned to New York with a new production in November 2017. 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 Tours of the United Kingdom and Australia began at the end of 2017 and 2018 respectively. JERSEY BOYS worldwide has been seen by over 25 million people (as of August 2017.)
