The Boys exceeded their fundraising goal. The money raised will be donated to PS 85 in the Bronx for the school's instrumental music education program, with additional funds going toward a second school to be named.
The money was raised after the cast and production team of the Four Seasons show pledged to donate a dollar to Save the Music for each ticket sold for all October performances. The pledge was made in honor of the show's fifth anniversary on Broadway.
The story of the rise of the acclaimed pop singing group Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Jersey Boys features a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The production is directed by Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo.
Jersey Boys is currently running at the August Wilson Theatre. For tickets visit telecharge.com.
