Super Bowl Sunday just keeps filling up with Broadway stars. Joining the cast of Rock of Ages on February 2 at the NFL Tailgate Party in Rutherford, New Jersey, will be the Broadway company of the Tony-, Grammy-, and Olivier Award-winning musical Jersey Boys. The appearance will follow the cast's January 29 performance during the NFL's reveal of the Super Bowl Roman Numerals on Broadway at 43rd Street.

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.
