Directed by Canadian Des McAnuff, who directed such hits as Jesus Christ Superstar, Guys and Dolls and The Who’s Tommy, this Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning musical debuted on Broadway in 2005 and ended that run in 2017 as the 12th-longest running show in Broadway history. The touring show has set box office records around the continent.

The story takes audiences behind the scenes during the rise of the band from a group of guys from New Jersey to the international musical sensations they quickly became. The show is filled with legendary hits penned by Four Seasons founding member and chief songwriter Bob Gaudio, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”
