Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical, Jersey Boys, has returned to Detroit to kick off a new national tour from December 12th thru the 18th at the Music Hall.


Tickets for the Detroit engagement start at $25 and are available online at ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-982-2787 or in person at the Fisher Theatre Box Office.


This outing of the Jersey Boys tour reunites Royal Oak native Eric Chambliss (Bob Gaudio) and Jon Hacker (Frankie Valli) with newcomers Devon Goffman (Tommy DeVito) and Matt Faucher (Nick Massi.)


The popular musical, which tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons is a crowd favorite for its engaging storytelling, fantastic music and eye-popping staging.


The show follows the dynamic foursome as they navigate the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that was their rise to fame.


The iconic group behind hits such as “Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry,"Oh What A Night" and “Walk Like a Man" rose to fame in the early 1960s before breaking up, which would lead to Valli's successful solo career.


Hacker holds the show together as he hits all of Valli's notes with ease as he navigates through the different relationships he has with the other three members of the group.


Hacker and Chambliss do a fantastic job of showcasing the connection between Valli and Gaudio as the talent and the writer.


Meanwhile, Goffman and Faucher bring the laughs and plenty of trouble as DeVito and Massi attempt to earn their own spotlight, while helping to drive the story along.


Together, the quartet bring the iconic songs to life with pitch-perfect harmony that had the crowd dancing, clapping and singing along.
