Winner of Broadway’s Tony, London’s Olivier and Australia’s Helpmann Awards for Best New Musical, Jersey Boys is the winner of 57 major awards worldwide and has been seen by over 24 million people worldwide. Jersey Boys can currently be seen across the United States on its US National Tour. The Broadway production closed on 15 January 2017 as the 12th longest running show in Broadway history.
