Attention to all musical show fans, take note, as the popular “Jersey Boys” performance is finally coming to Malaysia. Jersey Boys has been performed over 3000 times and is now the 14th longest running show on Broadway. It has been seen and adored by over 18 million people.
Without a doubt, the show this time will definitely mesmerize the Malaysians with its brilliance and energy.

Introduction of the show:
Organised by Milestone Production Sdn Bhd, JERSEY BOYS revolves around the true-life story and the remarkable rise to stardom of one of the most successful bands in American pop music history – Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons - how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. Apart from featuring the band’s 60’s American pop worldwide hits, JERSEY BOYS also tells the story of the inspiring journey of The Four Seasons from the mean streets of Newark, New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records globally – all before they were thirty!

JERSEY BOYS, winner of 54 major awards including the 2006 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album, 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and winner of the Best Musical Tony Award® on Broadway, in London and Australia is not a tribute band but a full-scale Broadway musical that takes audiences behind the music” to tell the story of the group through each of the four members’ perspectives.

The storyline tells a tale about friendships, hardships, fights and the success resulting from a New Jersey “handshake”. The show opened on Broadway in 2005 and 3000 performances later is STILL running to full houses. JERSEY BOYS is the 15th longest-running show in Broadway history; having surpassed the record previously held by Hello, Dolly!

The Four Seasons are played by Grant Almirall (Chicago, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Frankie Valli; Daniel Buys (Boys in the Photograph, Mamma Mia!) as Tommy DeVito; Kenneth Meyer (Boys in the Photograph, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Bob Gaudio and television star Emmanuel Castis (Scandal, Isidingo, season 4 winner of Strictly Come Dancing) as Nick Massi with Jaco van Rensburg (Showboat, Chicago, Grease) playing Frankie Valli at certain performances. The three leading female characters, fondly dubbed, the “Jersey Girls” are played by Carmen Pretorius (Footloose!, Mamma Mia, Cabaret), Taryn-Lee Hudson (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Kidz Rock, Let the Good Times Roll) and Kirsten Murphy-Rossiter (Some Like it Vrot, Grease, M-Net’s Crimes Uncovered).

According to Grace Lee, Managing Director of Milestone Production Sdn Bhd, “In our constant endeavor to introduce world-renowned and the best theatrical productions to Malaysia, we are proud to be bringing this multi-award Broadway musical to our shores. In addition to bringing in world class quality entertainment to Malaysians, we hope it will also help boost tourism for our nation.” We believe Malaysians have a growing appetite for live theatre productions and it is our hope that with more of such world class quality presentations, Malaysia will be recognized as a hub for the performing arts in this region thus further boosting our nation’s tourism appeal.”
