Jersey Boys Second National Tour Launch in December 2011

A second national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys will launch with an engagement at Philadelphia’s Forrest Theatre, beginning on Dec 06, 2011 and perform thru Jan 15, 2012.

Directed by Des McAnuff and featuring choreography by Sergio Trujillo, Jersey Boys, with a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, music by Bob Gaudio, and lyrics by Bob Crewe, tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. No casting has been announced still.

In a statement producer Michael David said, “We are thrilled that the public’s interest in Jersey Boys has generated the demand for a second North American touring production. We continue to be amazed and humbled at how universally this story and its music seem to touch people; from San Francisco to Schenectady, and around the world – Toronto, Australia, London, and hopefully beyond.”

Mark Schweppe, Senior Director of Theatre Operations for The Shubert Organization, added, “Jersey Boys had a phenomenal premiere engagement at the Forrest Theater in Fall 2010, having electrified over 140,000 theatergoers. Jersey Boys holds the top 9 box office grosses at the Forrest, and we look forward to having the show back in town with the launch of the new company.”
