With phenomenal music, memorable characters, and great storytelling, Jersey Boys follows the fascinating evolution of four blue-collar kids who became one of the greatest successes in pop-music history. Jersey Boys took Best Musical honors at both the Tony Awards® and Olivier Awards®, and features such chart-topping hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” “Let’s Hang On,” “Walk Like A Man,” and “Who Loves You.” It has been performed globally in Canada, the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Australia, and China.

“City Springs Theatre Company is very proud to be the first in the southeast region to present Jersey Boys,” said CSTC Artistic Director and Tony Award®-winner Shuler Hensley. “Our audiences have been asking for this particular show since we opened. The production is truly stacked with talent onstage and off, and we’re pulling out all the stops to bring audiences an experience that will rival any previous version of this show.”    

Jersey Boys premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2005, prior to its 13-year Broadway run, from 2005 to 2017. There have been productions of the show in Las Vegas, UK/Ireland, Toronto, Melbourne, Singapore, South Africa, the Netherlands, Japan, Dubai, and China.

Jersey Boys features a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, and lyrics by Bob Crewe.
