Jersey Boys UK Tour Cast announced!

The stellar cast for Jersey Boys, the smash-hit West End success which returns to Glasgow for two weeks next year, has been announced.

Following its sell-out success at Theatre Royal in December 2015, the Olivier Award-winning production will open at the King’s Theatre on Tuesday 3 April until Saturday 14 April 2018.
Those stepping into the infamous red jackets are Michael Watson (playing Frankie Valli) Simon Bailey (playing Tommy De Vito), Declan Egan (playing Bob Gaudio) and Lewis Griffiths (playing Nick Massi).

All four have all previously performed their roles in Jersey Boys to great acclaim; Michael and Simon in the West End, Declan in the West End and Australia, and Lewis in the first UK and Ireland tour.

The cast also includes Joel Elferink as Bob Crewe, James Alexander Gibbs as Joey, Mark Heenehan as Gyp DeCarlo, Karl James-Wilson as Norm Waxman, Arnold Mabhena as Barry Belson, Phoebe May Newman as Francine, Olive Robinson as Lorraine, James Winter as Hank Majewski and Tara Young as Mary Delgado.  Completing the cast will be Peter Nash, Dan O’Brien, Stephen O’Riain and Amy Thiroff.

Jersey Boys is the remarkable true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to stardom from the wrong side of the tracks. These four boys from New Jersey became one of the most successful bands in pop history, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and sold 175 million records worldwide, all before they turned 30.  The show is packed with their hits, including Beggin’, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, December, 1963 (Oh What a Night), Big Girls Don’t Cry, My Eyes Adored You, Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got), Bye Bye Baby, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back to You, Fallen Angel, Rag Doll and Who Loves You.
