Jersey Boys closing on Broadway
Jersey Boys can’t “Stay” forever.
The musical dramatizing the career of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons will shutter its 11-year Broadway run on Jan. 15, 2017 after 4,642 shows at the August Wilson Theatre, the show’s producers announced Tuesday. It will end as the 12th-longest show in Broadway history.
Jersey Boys debuted in La Jolla, California in 2004 before making its way to New York in November 2005. Its U.S. tour began the following year, after it won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The show has grossed more than $2 billion worldwide in its various productions.
Mark Ballas of Dancing With the Stars fame will play the final Valli beginning Oct. 18. Dominic Scaglione Jr. will wrap up his run on Oct. 16.
