Following more than 1,000 performances, the legendary Tony and Olivier award-winning musical Jersey Boys will close on January 4th, 2024 after three successful years at the Trafalgar Theatre.
The award-winning production charts the remarkable rise to fame of the legendary 1960s rock ‘n’ roll group, The Four Seasons, and follows the fortunes of the group’s members: Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio from the mean streets of New Jersey to international fame and stardom.
The musical is packed with hit songs from their back catalogue including ”Bye Bye Baby”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Sherry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “Walk Like a Man.”
Speaking in a statement about the production, Howard Panter, producer for Trafalgar Theatre Productions commented: “It’s been 18 years since the first inception of Jersey Boys, with over 30 million people having seen the musical worldwide and almost 300 actors having donned the famous red jacket. It has been magnificent to see London audiences truly embrace the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons over the last three years, with packed houses and standing ovations every night. Fans of the musical can enjoy extra performances over the festive period, and I’m incredibly proud of our talented West End cast who will lead the show into its final performances at the Trafalgar Theatre.”
Jersey Boys is written by Rick Elice, and Marshall Brickman, with music from Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The talented wider creative team features director Des McAnnuff, lighting designer Howell Binkley, choreographer Sergio Trujillo, projection designer Michael Clark, set designer Klara Zieglerova, costume designer Jess Goldstein, and sound designer Steve Canyon Kennedy.

The best seats in the theatre are situated in rows D to H in the centre section of the Stalls which offer excellent, central, intimate, and completely unobstructed views of the stage. The rows A to C at the front of the Dress Circle are also excellent, and offer elevated views of the action down below for people who prefer to look down on the stage.
Value for money can be found in the middle rows of the Dress Circle which can tend to be slightly cheaper than the premium seats, but thanks to a decent rake have clear views of the stage.
