‘Jersey Boys’ to wrap Chicago run

Musical to close on Jan. 10

Tony-winning musical “Jersey Boys” will wrap its sit-down Chicago run at the Bank of America Theater on Jan. 10 after more than two years and 951 performances.

The Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons bio-tuner has sold more than a million ducats and broken box office records four times during its Windy City residency.

The show opened in Chicago in October 2007, initially as a limited engagement. However, strong reviews and brisk sales prompted producers to switch to an open-ended run as of February 2008. The Chi stint is a major success by local standards, though it falls short of the 3½-year run logged by “Wicked,” which closed this year.

The departure of “Jersey Boys” opens up Chicago for next spring’s arrival of another Tony-anointed tuner, “Billy Elliot.” Also upcoming is the pre-Broadway tryout of “The Addams Family,” beginning perfs Nov. 13 at the Oriental Theater.
