TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: “Jersey Boys” Returns to San Francisco

Jan 15, 2022
BroadwaySF, part of the Ambassador Theatre Group, has announced that the Tony®, Grammy® and Olivier® Award-winning hit musical “JERSEY BOYS,” the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons will return to San Francisco for two weeks only, March 1 – March 13, 2022. The musical will make its much-anticipated return to BroadwaySF’s Golden Gate Theatre (1 Taylor Street).

Recipient of Broadway’s Tony, London’s Olivier and Australia’s Helpmann Awards for Best New Musical, “JERSEY BOYS” is the winner of 65 major awards and has been seen by over 27 million people worldwide.

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 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,” “Beggin’” and “Working My Way Back To You.”
