BREAKDOWN
From the mean streets of Jersey to American Bandstand, this is the thrilling story of how a group of
blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became the biggest doo-wop sensation of all time:
The Four Seasons. Using their legendary music, two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff brings to
life the exciting early days of rock-and-roll, and the price of fame for four guys who had nothing – and
everything – to lose. JERSEY BOYS was originally produced at the La Jolla Playhouse.
