Jersey Boys the musical held its first official premiere in 2005. Bob Guadio wrote the composition, Bob Crew wrote the lyrics. The concept comes from a book written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.
Originally, the La Jolla Playhouse at the U of C was the location for the tryouts in 2004. Tryout dates were from October of 2004 until January of 2005. However, the show officially opened November 6 in 2005 at the August Wilson Theatre.
To date, Four Seasons ranks among the most successful rock and roll bands of the 1960s. Ever since the opening night, the Broadway production has become increasingly popular, as it has toured the world.
The year following the show premiere, it won four Tony Awards. In the original cast, Christian Hoff played Tommy Devito, Daniel Reichard played Bob Guadio, John Lloyd Young played Frankie Valli, while J. Robert Spencer played Nick Massi. During tryouts, Des McAnuff served as the artistic director at the Playhouse, but he did not stay on as the show's director.
Sergio Trujillo has primarily choreographed the production moves. A number of the outstanding musical hits originate from the original band. By using the Four Seasons hits, the play gives the account of how they came to be. Essentially, the story is told through four acts.
Through these acts, people learn how the band met, rose to fame, and eventually broke up. A band member narrates each of the acts, separated according to the seasons. Tommy Devito narrates for spring, Bob Gaudio narrates summer, Nick Massi autumn, and Frankie Valli narrates for winter.
Each act gives an account of a band member's individual perspective, explaining how they think they contributed to the success and failure of the band. As of April 10, 2011, Jersey Boys the musical has had 38 previews and 2241 performances. In June of 2011, the Broadway hit became the 25th longest running show on Broadway.
