The Tony-winning Broadway hit Jersey Boys will perform at Yankee Stadium on January 26 during the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series in New York, the National Hockey League has announced. The event will be a face-off between the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils, and cast members from the musical will perform during the pre-show. The game and performances will be broadcast live from Yankee Stadium on NBC.
Jersey Boys opened on November 6, 2005, at the August Wilson Theatre and has enjoyed nearly 3,500 Broadway performances. Featuring a Tony-nominated book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, the musical charts the evolution of the popular 1960s pop/rock quartet Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. The show infuses some the group's most popular tunes written by Bob Gaudio and Bob Crewe 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." The cast currently stars Joseph Leo Bwarie as Frankie Valli, Richard H. Blake as Tommy DeVito, Matt Bogart as Nick Massi, and Drew Gehling as Bob Gaudio.
Cast members Richard H. Blake, Matt Bogart, Jared Bradshaw, and Christopher Messina will be on hand to perform at the Yankee Stadium event. Jersey Boys will also join the cast of Rock of Ages on February 2 at the NFL Tailgate Party in Rutherford, New Jersey. Read more about that event here.
