"You Know Who Would Love This Show..."

How many times you seen a performance, and thought, “You know who would love this show..."

It’s a phenomenon that’s rather unique to the performing arts. From the moment theater fans “catch the bug,” there’s a drive to share that intangible excitement. You hope that the people you care about – whether it’s your husband, your parents, your best friend or the neighbors across the street – will find a show that strikes a chord within, inspiring, invigorating, and entertaining days, weeks, months and even years later.

Jersey Boys is that kind of show, and it’s playing an extended three-week Wisconsin premiere at the Fox Cities P.A.C. June 1-19. On Broadway and around the country, it’s captivating audiences, drawing people in with a true story of friendship, fame and fortune and four blue-collar kids that made music history. Broadway fans will be delighted by Jersey Boys’ stunning production values, unforgettable cast and show-stopping drama, but even theater newbies will be lured to the spotlight.

Jersey Boys is perfect for…

Music Fans 
Whether your folks cruised around listening to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in their first car or you know their music from listening to the oldies, the true story of the group comes to life with 19 hit songs that paved the road to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Hear “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Dawn,” “My Eyes Adored You,” and more, live with Frankie Valli’s legendary falsetto.

Broadway Devotees
Jersey Boys is more than a juke box musical. Sure it includes a lot of songs you already know by heart, but it also took home four Tony Awards, including Best Musical. When you ask four men what really happened, you get four different answers, and the book, written by Marshall Brickman ad Rick Elice, lays out a compelling story of friendship, betrayal, mob ties and contracts signed with a handshake. There’s no shortage of drama in Jersey Boys.

Manly Men 
If your husband or father is more interested in “Law and Order” than “Masterpiece Theater,” Jersey Boys might just be the story to show him that Broadway is more than costumes and chorus lines. Four “tough guys” tell the story, so even a reluctant ticket holder might just catch the theater bug.

Tickets for Jersey Boys start at $61, and they’re on sale now at! Make sure you have your seats, and share your excitement with the theater skeptics in your life.
