The original – and the best. The West End smash hit musical, Jersey Boys, is set for a UK tour.
Full casting has now been announced by the producers of the UK and Irish tour of the Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award-winning Best Musical.
West End star Tim Driesen is Frankie Valli with Stephen Webb, Sam Ferriday and Lewis Griffiths as Tommy DeVito, Bob Gaudio and Nick Massi respectively.
Matt Corner will play the role of Frankie Valli at certain performances.
Also in the cast will be Sean Kingsley, Matt Gillett, Nathaniel Morrison, Dominic Smith, Damian Buhagiar, Henry Davis, Leanne Garretty, Amelia Adams-Pearce, Sinead Long, Dan Krikler, Dayle Hodge, Luke Morton and Charlie Allen.
Jersey Boys has been seen by over 19 million people worldwide and is firmly established as one of the West End’s longest running and most popular shows, where it continues to play at its new home of the Piccadilly Theatre.
It is the remarkable true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom from the wrong side of the tracks.
The four boys from New Jersey became one of the most successful bands in pop history, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and sold 175 million records worldwide, all before they turned 30.
