Jersey Boys Announces Complete Casting for New World Stages Run
The Tony-winning musical returns to New York in November for an off-Broadway remount.
As previously announced, the cast stars Aaron De Jesus as Frankie Valli, Nicolas Dromard as Tommy DeVito, Mark Edwards as Nick Massi, and Cory Jeacoma as Bob Gaudio. Joining them in the company are Stephen Cerf, Andrew Frace, Natalie Gallo, Jon Hacker, Christopher Messina, Austin Owen, John Rochette, Jenna Nicole Schoen, Rachel Schur, and Dru Serkes.
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 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.
