Casting Announced for Jersey Boys' Return to New York
Aaron De Jesus, Nicolas Dromard, Mark Edwards, and Cory Jeacoma will star.
The production will star Aaron De Jesus as Frankie Valli, Nicolas Dromard as Tommy DeVito, Mark Edwards as Nick Massi, and Cory Jeacoma as Bob Gaudio, with additional casting to be announced soon.
Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi, and includes dozens of their popular hits including "Walk Like a Man," "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)," and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."
The show's Broadway production opened on November 6, 2005, after playing an out-of-town tryout run at the La Jolla Playhouse. It closed 11 years later on January 15, 2017. A film version directed by Clint Eastwood was released in 2014.
Like the Broadway production, the off-Broadway staging of Tony-winning musical is directed by Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo, with music supervision, vocal and dance arrangements and incidental music by Ron Melrose, and orchestrations by Steve Orich.
The design and production team includes Klara Zieglerova (set design), Jess Goldstein (costume design), Howell Binkley (lighting design), Steve Canyon Kennedy (sound design), Michael Clark (projection design), and Charles LaPointe (wig and hair design).
