Jersey Boys Chicago tickets are going to be very difficult to find, as this growing theater phenomenon is as widely-seen a show as there is in the world today. The story incorporates struggle, intrigue and success and is an in-depth study of one of the most successful rock and roll bands of the 1960’s, the Four Seasons. Best of all, the plot is interspersed with some of the band’s biggest hits of that era. Below we’ll take a look at what this story is all about and how it came to be.
Jersey Boys is told in a documentary style, which is quite unique for a musical. It details the rise and struggle of the Four Seasons, which was a wildly-successful rock and roll band that consisted of members Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito. The documentary style is executed by each of the band members taking turns narrating the story, and the plot itself is supported by several of the band’s biggest chart-topping hits.
The band members each knew each other growing up in one of the tough areas of New Jersey, and they soon began to rehearse and sing together. Their sound was seen as quite innovative at the time, and eventually their genre became known as doo wop.” Each of the band members and the band collectively dealt with many life struggles, and these trials and tribulations are described as the characters are developed.
Given their lack of funds, the band had to not only write, but also produce and perform their own music, and they had to promote their work independently for a time as well. However, their extreme diligence finally led to a record contract and dozens of chart-topping hits.
Jersey Boys Chicago tickets are available on the heels of highly-successful appearances in other venues. The show made its Broadway debut on November 6, 2005 at the August Wilson Theatre, and it was an instant smash hit. The show generated more than $400,000 in revenue at the box office the day after it opened.
Given the demand for tickets on Broadway, the producers decided to take the show on the road, which they did initially with an appearance in San Francisco in December of 2006. The show is now set for Chicago, and the anticipation is high for this production run.
Jersey Boys was also recognized by industry experts and followers, as it won four Tony Awards, including the biggest prize of all: Best Musical for 2006. If you want to see a show that’s part documentary, part drama and part rock and roll concert, Jersey Boys Chicago tickets will satisfy all of those desires with a night at the theater to remember.
