"With advance ticket sales over $30 million on Broadway, we are confident that visitors from all over the world will come to see what is currently the hottest ticket on Broadway," Palazzo president Rob Goldstein previously said in a statement. "Jersey Boys appeals to a wide range of audiences, beyond the traditional theatregoer."
The Palazzo resort is currently being built by Las Vegas Sands Corp in the heart of the Strip. It will neighbor the company's Venetian and Sands Expo and Convention Center. Director Des McAnuff (The Who's Tommy, Big River) will reteam with the Broadway creative team — including choreographer Sergio Trujillo — for the new run.
Jersey Boys re-creates the story of American pop group The Four Seasons — the highs, the lows and all in between — on stage in the musical with the help of their hits "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "December 1963 (Oh, What A Night)" and more.
The show began previews on Broadway Oct. 4, 2005, and officially opened at the August Wilson Theatre Nov. 6. The original Broadway cast recording is available on Rhino Records.
Two national touring companies currently play the musical and a London West End production is slated to launch in February 2008. (Check jerseyboysinfo.com for more information on all current runs.)
Jersey Boys features music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and a book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice. The production garnered four Tony Award wins: for stars John Lloyd Young and Christian Hoff, lighting designer Howell Binkley and for the top prize, Best Musical.
Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Tamara and Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, in association with Latitude Link and Rick Steiner/Oshen/Staton/Bell/Mayerson Group produce. The musical made its debut at the La Jolla Playhouse in October 2004.
The design team includes Klara Zieglerova (scenic), Jess Goldstein (costume), Howell Binkley (lighting), Steve Canyon Kennedy (sound), Michael Clark (projections) and Charles LaPointe (wig and hair). Steve Orich provides orchestrations, and Ron Melrose handles music direction, vocal arrangements and incidental music.
