Jersey Boys, the hit musical that tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, has confirmed that it will play its final show in London next year.
The show first lit up Broadway in 2005, and went on to win three Tony’s the following year – a Grammy for Best Show Album came in 2007. It later transferred to London, where it first played at Prince Edward Theatre before moving to the Piccadilly Theatre in 2014. In the same year, a film version of the show – directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Christopher Walken as Valli’s mentor Angelo “Gyp” DeCarlo – hit the silver screen.
Jersey Boys will now play its last London show on Sunday 26 March 2017. But it’s not all doom-and-gloom for fans of the departing show, as the producers promise a storming final six months in the West End.
Furthermore, a UK tour of Jersey Boys – the show’s second – will begin in Birmingham from December 2017.
