Jersey Boys announces final performance in London’s West End

Jersey Boys is to close in London’s West End after three years.

The original Grammy, Tony and Olivier award-winning smash-hit musical will play its final show at the Trafalgar Theatre on 4 January 2024

Originally reopening the refurbished Trafalgar Theatre in July 2021, the musical extravaganza goes behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the multi award-winning, true-life phenomenon.

Audiences have just 12 weeks left to enjoy Jersey Boys – although producers tease that there are already plans in place for the show to return to UK shores in the not too distant future.

Edward Strong, producer partner for the Dodgers, said: “The Jersey-style Yanks who collaborated with their friends at Trafalgar Theatre Productions to return the musical joyride to the West End for a multi-year encore thank all of our UK colleagues and audiences who brought the excitement to every performance. The legend of the Four Seasons–Frankie, Bob, Nick and Tommy– shines on, burnished once again by the warm reception given to their music and their story by all the Jersey Boys fans in the UK. Seasons to come may well see another Jersey Boys replay in all the markets that welcomed us so avidly.”

Howard Panter, producer for Trafalgar Theatre Productions, added: “It’s been 18 years since the first inception of Jersey Boys, with over 30 million people having seen the musical worldwide and almost 300 actors having donned the famous red jacket. It has been magnificent to see London audiences truly embrace the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons over the last three years, with packed houses and standing ovations every night. Fans of the musical can enjoy extra performances over the festive period, and I’m incredibly proud of our talented West End cast who will lead the show into its final performances at the Trafalgar Theatre.”

They were just four guys from New Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story—a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Leading the cast of Jersey Boys into its final performances is Luke Suri (Frankie Valli), Karl James Wilson (Nick Massi), Peter Nash (Tommy De Vito) and Declan Egan (Bob Gaudio) as The Four Seasons.
