The MUNY Theater to put on Production of Jersey Boys

The Muny has announced the leading quartet for its upcoming production of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which will play the outdoor St. Louis venue July 9–16.

Directed and choreographed by Josh Rhodes (Bright Star) with music direction by Rick Bertone, the cast will be led by Emmy nominee Mark Ballas (Dancing with the Stars, Jersey Boys) as Frankie Valli, Bobby Conte Thornton (A Bronx Tale) as Bob Gaudio, Nicolas Dromard (Mary Poppins, Jersey Boys) as Tommy DeVito, and Keith Hines (Jersey Boys national tour) as Nick Massi.

After Broadway, Off-Broadway, touring, and international productions, the Muny will be the first regional theatre to create its own production of the award-winning musical.

“This in an absolutely sensational quartet,” said Muny Artistic Director and Executive Producer Mike Isaacson. “We’re so honored to have this show for our 100th, and I can’t wait to see these four bring the magic and truth of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons to The Muny.”

The musical, which tells the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, opened in New York November 6, 2005, and ended its 11-year Broadway run January 15, 2017. The musical returned to New York in November 2017 at Off-Broadway’s New World Stages.

Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.
