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. 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.

Contains authentic, “profane Jersey language” and is recommended for ages 12 and up.
