Jersey Boys tells the turbulent story behind the meteoric rise and international stardom of one of the biggest and most successful bands in music history, Franki Valli & The Four Seasons.
It has become a West End smash-hit, winning over 50 awards worldwide including the highly prized Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
Packed full of hits including “Can't Take My Eyes Off You”, “December 1963 (Oh What A Night)”, “Walk Like A Man”, “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don't Cry”, Jersey Boys is quickly becoming a classic of modern culture.
A London Showtime break with National Holidays is one of the easiest ways to catch Jersey Boys, with theatre tickets, hotel accommodation, and time to enjoy the capital and coach travel included in one sensational price.
Fronted by the recognisable falsetto voice of Frankie Valli, the Four Seasons were one of the biggest US bands of all time, selling over 100million records.
But behind the clean-cut image and overwhelming success, which led to the band being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, was a rocky, colourful but fascinating rollercoaster journey.
Hailing from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey, the early years of the group’s founding member Tommy DeVito was split between his band, the less than successful Variety Trio, and jail for petty crime.
But when he comes across young local boy Frankie Castelluccio (Valli), and songwriter Bob Gaudio they invent an unmistakable sound that would turn them into a global phenomenon. But will their troubled past come back to haunt them when they reach the top?
One of our most popular London theatre Breaks, Jersey Boys may be a jukebox musical but it isn’t an excuse for a sing-a-long and a nostalgic trip back down memory lane at the expense of the plot.
Instead each song is used cleverly as a narrative driver to provide a true insight into this rags-to-riches story, told chronologically in turn by each ‘Season’ with their own personality.
With hit after hit from the band’s extensive back catalogue, The Jersey Boys musical brings to life one of the music industry’s most hidden stories but this performance will remain in the West End’s spotlight for many years to come.
