Hard Rock Atlantic City brings the Jersey Boys to the Shore

 

The story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons resounds as showbiz legend. Having taken Broadway by storm as well as the stage with a residency in a custom-built theater at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, and a touring troupe around the country, this story of ambition and talent finally makes its way back to where it all began, the Garden State.

Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning musical, will make its home at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City inside the Soundwave Theater for an extended stay beginning June 25 through July 21. The show charts the behind-the-scenes story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, examining how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide—all before they were the age of 30. The show features such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” “Oh, What a Night,” and many more.

Jersey Boys, is not the first Broadway show Hard Rock brought to the seaside town. In November, Rock of Ages: The 10th Anniversary Tour took the stage for a week-long stay to rave reviews, and the touring production of Kinky Boots is set to arrive April 30 through May 5.

The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features a Tony Award-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, a book by Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.
