About Jersey Boys Tampa

Jersey Boys is the award-winning musical that takes audiences through the journey of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons' rise from blue collar boys to best-selling pop sensations. The musical features all of fans' favorite hits, like "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," "Dawn," "My Eyes Adored You," and much more. Presented in a documentary style format, the show's unmatched creative team is comprised of two-time Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff, writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, composer Bob Gaudio, lyricist Bob Crewe, and choreographer Sergio Trujillo.

Director Des McAnuff has directed more than 35 productions, including Jesus Christ Superstar, Guys and Dolls, Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention, Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays, Dracula the Musical, The Who's Tommy, A Walk in the Woods, Big River, and more.

Choreographer Sergio Trujillo also brings his amazing experience to the show, with previous work on Hands on a Hardbody, Memphis, Leap of Faith, The Addams Family, Next to Normal, All Shook Up, Guys and Dolls, Flashdance, Saved, The Capeman, Romeo and Juliet, Figaro, The Sound of Music, and much more. He also contributed his expertise toSo You Think You Can Dance: Canada.

After writing his first hit for the Royal Teens "Who Wears Short Shorts," the Four Seasons'Bob Gaudioshot to fame when he was just 15 years old. He went on to co-found the Four Seasons and served as the band's principal songwriter. In addition to his work with the Four Seasons, Gaudio also produced the song "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" for Neil Diamond and Barbara Streisand, which later was nominated for a Grammy Award for Record of the Year. He also produced tracks for heavy hitters like Diana Ross, Frank Sinatra, Marvin Gaye, and Michael Jackson, and even the soundtrack for the film Little Shop of Horrors. Gaudio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 1990, and in 1995, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame for his multitude of countless hits.

Jersey Boys opened on Broadway in 2005 and has since toured around the world. In 2006, the show won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and in 2009 it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical. After Mamma Mia! and Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story gained popularity, Bob Gaudio and producer Bob Crewe decided to make a show in a similar format, but this time telling the story of the Four Seasons. They hired writers Rick Elice and Marshall Brickman, and director Des McAnuff. Prior to the release of the musical, little was known about the band members' history. Because of the clean-cut image of their competitors during their heyday, the reality of their rough, blue-collar upbringing was hidden from the public eye, including some members having previously served time in prison. Once audience members got a chance to see the real truth through the unique narration-style musical, they were hooked with the rags-to-riches story.
