Toronto’s ‘Jersey Boys’ extends run

New cast takes over in December

Tony-winner “Jersey Boys” is duplicating its success on Broadway north of the border, where the Toronto production has been extended to an open-ended run, with a new cast taking over in December.

Dancap Prods.’ presentation of the Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons biotuner at the Toronto Centre for the Arts has been playing to near-capacity crowds since its Aug. 24 opening. While the exit of most of the current cast Dec. 6 was being viewed as a potential closing date, the show’s strong grosses prompted a decision last weekend to move ahead with the considerable expense of recasting.

A new, mostly Canadian company will step in Dec. 13 with the hope of an indefinite run, looking toward the show’s recent one-year anniversary in Chicago as a hopeful sign.

Headlining the new Toronto company will be eight-season Shaw Festival vet Jeff Madden as Valli, with local thesp Adrian Marchuk serving as his alternate. Jeremy Kushnier is expected to stay on in the role of Tommy DeVito.

Other cast members will be announced next week.
