Jersey Boys is a “jukebox musical” (defined as a musical that uses previously released popular songs as its score) that ran on Broadway from 2005 to 2017. Since its debut, it’s had two North American tours, productions in London, Las Vegas, Chicago, Toronto, Melbourne, Singapore, and South Africa. It won the 2006 Tony Award for Best Musical.

The musical dramatized the formation, success, and break-up of The Four Seasons (also known as Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons) in the 1960s and 1970s. The show features such memorable hits as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “December 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” and “My Eyes Adored You.”

Joseph was first presented as a 15-minute pop cantata in London in 1968, and received stage productions after the success of Jesus Christ Superstar, but it didn’t open on Broadway until 1982 (two years after the famous Providence College production). 😉
