JERSEY BOYS Makes Its Atlanta Debut (May 27 – June 21, 2009)

Special Four-Week Engagement Co-Presented by Broadway Across America – Atlanta and Theater of the Stars

Fidelity Investments Broadway Across America – Atlanta partners with Theater of the Stars to present the much-anticipated Atlanta premiere of Broadway’s latest smash hit, JERSEY BOYS, which comes to The Fabulous Fox Theatre for a special four-week engagement during the 2009 season from May 27 – June 21. This infectious Tony Award-winning musical tells the unforgettable story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

“We are thrilled to once again bring the very best of Broadway directly to Atlanta audiences,” comments Stephanie Parker, Vice President of the Mid South Region for Broadway Across America. “We have no doubt the Jersey Boys premiere will be a huge draw for Atlanta theatre-goers in 2009.”

“This rags-to-riches tale of pop icons The Four Seasons is classic story telling at its best, and the music is sensational,” states Christopher B. Manos, Producer of Theater of the Stars. “We are delighted to partner on this show and look forward to audiences here experiencing this powerful and energetic musical.”

“Too good to be true!” raves the New York Post for JERSEY BOYS, the 2006 Tony Award®-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were 30! JERSEY BOYS, winner of the 2006 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album, features their hit songs “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh What a Night” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” “IT WILL RUN FOR CENTURIES!” proclaims Time Magazine.

Directed by two-time Tony® Award-winner Des McAnuff, JERSEY BOYS is written by Academy Award® -winner Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
