The multi-award winning musical JERSEY BOYS had its Asian debut at the Sands Theater on Tuesday, also making it the first show to premiere at the newly renamed MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands. Starting from November 20, the phenomenally successful production will be staged daily from Tuesday to Sunday, for a 14-week season.
Currently playing in major cities across the world including London and New York, JERSEY BOYS tells the real-life story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. To date, the musical has been seen by over 13 million people across the globe.
Four Seasons, made up of 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 turned 30.
While the younger generation may not recognize the faces of the band, their hit songs such Sherry, Rag Doll and Can't Take My Eyes off You would ring a bell. These and numerous other Four Seasons songs have been covered by many of today's pop artists, proving the diverse appeal and appreciation of their music, as it lives on through the generations.
"Singapore will be the first Asian city to experience this powerful piece of international theater with extraordinary music and a real life storyline. We are extremely excited to be involved in producing this Broadway version of JERSEY BOYS for Asia. It runs at breath-taking pace and audiences will be left wanting to come back for more. This is an evening of exceptional entertainment," Milan Rokic, Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia said.
