The Jersey Boys are working their way back to Newcastle

Oh what a night! The internationally acclaimed stage sensation Jersey Boys will make a popular return to Newcastle Theatre Royal and is set to dazzle audiences between Tue 30 Aug – Sat 10 Sep 2022.

Previous tour alumni Michael Pickering and Lewis Griffiths return as Frankie Valli and Nick Massi respectively, with Blair Gibson as Bob Gaudio and Dalton Wood as Tommy DeVito. Luke Suri will play Frankie Valli at certain performances. 

The Tony and Olivier Award-winning smash-hit musical – which proved to be an audience favourite at the Grey Street venue during its previous run in 2018 – goes behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

They were just four guys from New Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect onstage, off stage it was a very different story—a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s too good to be true.  


Also in the cast are Dougie Carter (Hank Majewski), Ryan Carter-Wilson (Swing), Emma Crossley (Mary Delgado), Jordan James (Gyp DeCarlo), Norton James (Norm Waxman), Michael Levi (Bob Crewe), Tom O’Brien (Swing), Nathan Routledge (Swing), George Salmon (Joe Pesci), Ellie Seaton (Lorraine), Daisy Steere (Francine), Amy West (Swing), and Damien Winchester (Barry Belson).  

Written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe, the show is packed with well-known hits, including Beggin’SherryWalk Like A ManDecember, 1963 (Oh What a Night)Big Girls Don’t CryMy Eyes Adored YouLet’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got)Bye Bye BabyCan’t Take My Eyes Off YouWorking My Way Back to YouFallen AngelRag Doll and Who Loves You.   

Recipient of Broadway’s Tony, London’s Olivier and Australia’s Helpmann Awards for Best New Musical, Jersey Boys is the winner of 65 major awards and has been seen by over 27 million people worldwide. 

Having originally opened in New York on 6 November 2005, it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history by the time it closed on 15 January2017.  It returned to New York with a new production in November 2017 and the US National Tour is still breaking house records in cities across North America. 

Jersey Boys first ran in London’s West End from 18 March 2008 to 26 March 2017 and, at the time, was the sixth longest musical running in the West End.  Last year, the musical returned to the West End, opening the new multi-million pound reinstated Trafalgar Theatre on 10 August 2021. Jersey Boyspreviously played two record-breaking UK and Ireland Tours from 2014 to 2016 and from 2017 to 2019.

Jersey Boys plays at Newcastle Theatre Royal from Tue 30 Aug – Sat 10 Sep 2022. Tickets are priced from £24.00 and can be purchased at www.theatreroyal.co.uk or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
