Jersey Boys coming to Columbus August 17 2011

Jersey Boys Broadway musical will be coming to the Ohio Theatre Columbus next summer for three weeks as a part of a national tour. But theater enthusiasts will have to wait nearly two seasons to see the play, which features 1960s rock ‘n’ roll group The Four Seasons. The Tony Award-winning musical will stop in Columbus OH Aug. 17 to Sept. 4 2011.

The musical has won four Tony Awards, was named the Best New Musical by London’s Laurence Olivier Awards and has won a Grammy Award for Best Show Album. It premiered on Broadway in 2005 and began its first national tour in 2006.

“The show I was in before this one was ‘Lion King,'” said John Gardiner, an actor who plays 15 roles in the play. “I remember being onstage for the opening of (the ‘Lion King’) and thinking, ‘Wow, nothing could match the electricity of that crowd.’ But then I got in ‘Jersey Boys.'”

Jersey Boys’ visit to Columbus will be the second Ohio trip the cast has made. Bwarie and Gardiner preformed in Cincinnati in 2008 – the loudest crowd they have experienced on the tour.

Bill Conner, president of the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts, said a total of 60,000 tickets will be released for “Jersey Boys'” three-week stay in Columbus, OH. The musical is now running in Forrest Theatre, Philadelphia PA.
