Jersey Boys the musical is coming to Dubai Opera
Broadway hit Jersey Boys will be staged at Dubai Opera this October.
Here’s one more for musical fans: It’s just been announced that the acclaimed, and long-running Broadway musical Jersey Boys is headed to Dubai from October 11 to 14 at Dubai Opera.
The Jukebox musical tells the story of the success of one of the most popular bands of all time: Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, a band responsible for some of the most recognisable hits of the ’60s, including Oh What a Night, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Sherry, Walk Like a Man, Bye Bye Baby and Big Girls Don’t Cry.
See, we told you that you’d know them.
The four regular guys from New Jersey came to dominate the airwaves worldwide with their perfect harmonies — which were unlike anything anyone had ever heard.
This production, loved the world over, tells the behind-the-scenes story of the band, and reveals how their relationships off-stage were anything but perfect. It was even made into a feature film in 2014, directed by Clint Eastwood.
The musical is split into the four “seasons”, taking us from spring to winter with each segment narrated by a different member of the band — who gives their perspective on the history and the music.
The show has won fifty-seven major awards worldwide including Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical, Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical, Best Lighting Design of a Musical and the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
