NEW YORK — The boys are back in town this fall.
The off-Broadway revival of “The Jersey Boys” is set to return to New York City’s New World Stages on Nov. 15.
Producers of Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning jukebox musical announced Monday the show will go on for Jonathan Cable, Aaron De Jesus, CJ Pawlikowski and John Rochette – the quartet of actors who played The Four Seasons prior to the COVID-19 shutdown.
Written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, the Des McAnuff-helmed “Jersey Boys” chronicles legendary crooner Frankie Valli’s origins from Newark, New Jersey, to the top of the pop charts in the ‘60s with the Four Seasons.
The doo-wop quartet — the progenitors of what would evolve into blue-eyed soul — the group sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
The Broadway production of “Jersey Boys” ran for 11 years before moving to New World Stages in November 2017.
In 2014, Clint Eastwood directed and produced a film adaptation, which featured members of the original award-winning Broadway cast.
Nick Jonas is reportedly attached to a planned streaming event performance of “Jersey Boys.”
Additional cast members returning to the production include Dianna Marie Barger, Michelle Rombola, Tristen Buettel, Rory Max Kaplan, Andrew Frace, Joey LaVarco, Austin Owen and Paul Sabala.
