Jersey Boys Receives Helen Hayes Award Nomination for Outstanding Non-Resident Production

The Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning hit musical, JERSEY BOYS just received a 2010 Helen Hayes Award nomination for Outstanding Non-Resident Production. The Helen Hayes Awards are Washington DC’s most prestigious theatre awards and a vibrant living legacy to The First Lady of the American Theatre. The Awards ceremony will take place April 5.

The National tour of Jersey Boys played a successful run at the National Theatre in Washington, DC from October 2, 2009 through December 12, 2009. Jersey Boys will next play Memphis at the Orpheum Theatre from January 27 through February 14, 2010.

Jersey Boys is the winner of the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award®, the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album and the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

Directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Des McAnuff, Jersey Boys is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

Jersey Boys opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway to critical acclaim on November 6, 2005. The Jersey Boys National Tour opened to rave reviews in San Francisco on December 1, 2006, played a record-breaking run in Los Angeles and is still breaking house records in cities across North America. There are six Current Productions of Jersey Boys: New York, London, Las Vegas, Toronto, a US National tour, and Melbourne, Australia.

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It’s a journey of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were thirty.

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Jersey Boys was produced by Bob Gaudio, and was recently certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. The cast recording is now available on Rhino Records. Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons (Broadway Books) is the official handbook to the smash Broadway hit.
