Registration now open! $199 per person

They had a look, an attitude, and a sound like no other. Sure, they were born in Jersey. But they were made in America.

Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons were a true-life musical phenomenon! They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard before … and radio audiences just couldn’t get enough of their sound. 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.

Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the  Tony and Grammy Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

The show features all of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons top ten hits, including: “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like A Man,”  “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night).”

This event is sold out. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please email Jennifer Baer.

Lin-Manuel Miranda (musical composer) and Thomas Kail (director) came together to create this spectacular, revolutionary, and quintessential American masterpiece on the history of our very own country.

Bringing home 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actor in a Musical, Best Choreography, and Best Orchestrations, this production created a sensation when it premiered in 2018.

Alexander Hamilton, America’s Founding Father, takes charge with his very vocal and witty hubris throughout this production as he leads several men into the political war of the era for the reclamation of their country. He becomes George Washington’s right-hand man, along with Aaron Burr, who both know that “dying is easy, but living is harder,” and that they’re just like their country, they’re young, scrappy, and hungry and they are NOT throwing away their shot!
