Meet The Cast of Jersey Boys at the John W. Engeman Theater

 Performances begin on Thursday, March 14, 2024, and run through Sunday, May 12, 2024.

They were just four guys from Jersey until they sang their very first note–a sound the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage was a different story– that has made them a sensation all over again. Winner of the 2006 Tony© Award for “Best Musical”, Jersey Boys features the top ten hits “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “December, 1963 (Oh What a Night).”
