John Lloyd Young -- who won a Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World awards for his performance as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys -- will return to the role for a limited engagement at Broadway's August Wilson Theatre, July 3-September 30.

The musical is based on the life story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and chronicles the lives of a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. It has a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, and features dozens of the group's popular hits, including "Walk Like a Man," "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Oh What a Night," and "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You."

The Broadway cast also includes Matt Bogart (Nick Massi), Quinn VanAntwerp (Bob Gaudio) and Andy Karl (Tommy DeVito) as The Four Seasons; with Peter Gregus and Mark Lotito. The cast also includes Miles Aubrey, Erik Bates, Jared Bradshaw, Cara Cooper, Ken Dow, John Edwards, Russell Fischer, Katie O'Toole, Joe Payne, Jessica Rush, Dominic Scaglione Jr., Nathan Scherich, Sara Schmidt and Taylor Sternberg.

Des McAnuff has directed the Broadway production, which features choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
