From the same company that delivered the sold-out season of Les Miserables in 2019, comes another classic musical to stages in Auckland and Wellington.

Hit musical Jersey Boys – The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons will make its return in 2021, including its premiere in the capital from May through to June. The Tony Award-winning stage show tells the story of blue collar quartet Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi and how they joined forces to become The Four Seasons.

The jukebox musical features all of the songs that helped the doo-wop band sell over 100 million records and enter the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, including 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You', 'Oh, What a Night' and 'Walk Like a Man'.

As well as picking up four Tony Awards, Jersey Boys is the winner of several major awards, including the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, and has even been turned into a film produced and directed by Clint Eastwood.

Jersey Boys lands at Auckland's The Civic from 17 April – 9 May, 2021, before heading to Wellington's Opera House from 21 May – 6 June, 2021. Tickets cost between $29.50–140 — you can join the waitlist here.
