The Teatro at Montecasino welcomes Jersey Boys, the smash hit musical making its South African premiere in April 2013.

Brought to you by Investec, this multi-award winning musical tells the true real-life story of how four poverty-line kids from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. 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 is currently playing in major cities worldwide including New York, Las Vegas, London, Auckland, Brisbane and across the USA, and in April, South Africa is added that list at Montecasino no doubt.

The Four Seasons? Frankie Valli? These names may not be instantly recognisable but for generations since the early ‘60’s to modern day the unique sounds of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are often echoed with responses such as “I know that number!” when familiarity and recognition of the band’s hit songs such as Sherry, Walk like a Man, Rag Doll, Oh What a Night and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You kicks in. These and numerous other Four Seasons songs have been covered by many of today’s pop artists, proving the diverse appeal and appreciation of this music as it lives on through the generations.

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 with a true-life story, a large 19-member, all South African cast and a 10-piece live band. The show takes audiences “behind the music” to tell the story of the group through each of the four members’ perspectives. The storyline weaves a tale about friendships, hardships, fights and the success resulting from a New Jersey “handshake”.

Jersey Boys South African Producer, Hazel Feldman of Showtime Management announced the 19-member multi-talented cast and introducing The Four Seasons 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 Emanuel 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.

“JERSEY BOYS is a musical treat without peer in its genre….”  Paul Boekkooi, The Tonight

"We've made a number of better-than-Broadway musicals in SA in the past 10 or 15 years, but I'm not sure we've made a better one."  Bruce Dennill, Citizen

“Jersey Boys is so heerlik soos ‘n melkskommel in ‘n afslaandak-Pontiac. Dit neem jou op ‘n genotvolle rock ‘n roll-reis na die 1960’s, grondpad en al!”  Anna-Retha Bouwer, Beeld

“Jersey Boys is one of the most flawless and engaging musicals I have seen, a stirring, toe-tapping, high octane onslaught that explores the lives of a group of young men from Jersey …" Peter Feldman, Artslink.co.za

"It’s a superb world-class production from all aspects - performance, musical, design and technical, with scene changes moving so swiftly they are almost imperceptible."  Caroline Smart, Artsmart.co.za
