‘Jersey Boys’ set for West End

Broadway musical to cross the pond

The Four Seasons are hitting the West End.

Two years into the Broadway run of “Jersey Boys,” the biotuner about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons will cross the pond to play London’s Prince Edward Theater. The show opens in its first international staging March 18, following previews that begin Feb. 28.

The quadruple Tony-winning Broadway production continues to wrap more than $1 million per week this summer at the August Wilson Theater. Current cume is $95.2 million, placing the show on track to cross the $100 million threshold before the end of August.

“Jersey Boys” also has two U.S. touring companies on the road, currently playing Los Angeles and San Francisco. A Chicago run opens in the fall, and a sit-down Las Vegas engagement is planned for early next year.

The original Broadway team will regroup for the London staging, headed by director Des McAnuff and choreographer Sergio Trujillo. Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella and the Pelican Group will produce, in association with Latitude Link, Rick Steiner and minority U.K. partners.

Tickets for the new production go on sale today.
