The Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning musical “Jersey Boys” celebrates its 1000th performance at New York City’s New World Stages of Jan. 9, 2022.

To mark the milestone, cast members from the New York, London and US Tour productions of “Jersey Boys” sent their congratulations.

“Jersey Boys” stars Jonathan Cable as Nick Massi, Aaron De Jesus as Frankie Valli, CJ Pawlikowski as Bob Gaudio and John Rochette as Tommy DeVito. The production also includes Dianna Marie Barger, Ben Bogan, Candi Boyd, Tristen Buettel, Wade Dooley, Alex Dorf, Andrew Frace, Natalie Gallo, John Gardiner, Wes Hart, Joey LaVarco, Austin Owen, Michelle Rombola, Paul Sabala and Kit Treece.

“Jersey Boys” is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Sergio Trujillo.

“Jersey Boys” is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from 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 on stage, off stage it was a very different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”

“Jersey Boys” opened in New York on Nov. 6, 2005, and by the time it closed there on Jan. 15, 2017, it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd Street, Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Producers. Blessed by awards all over the world, Jersey Boys has been seen by over 27 million people.

Tickets are on sale at the New World Stages box office or by visiting Telecharge.com. Group sales (ten or more) are available through Dodger Group Sales at 877-536-3437.
