Go behind the scenes with the JERSEY BOYS
Four new Seasons joined the cast of JERSEY BOYS at the Piccadilly Theatre last month. This is the first time since the show opened in London that all four Seasons have changed.
Jersey Boys is firmly established as one of the longest running and most popular shows in the West End.
Take a look at ‘A Journey to the Stage’, a video following a day in the life of the show’s four new Seasons, Matt Corner (Frankie Valli), Simon Bailey (Tommy De Vito), Declan Egan (Bob Gaudio) and Matt Hunt (Nick Massi).
Matt Corner joins the West End cast direct from the record-breaking UK and Ireland touring production of JERSEY BOYS, where he played Frankie Valli to 5-star reviews. Previously in the West End, he played Galileo in We Will Rock You.
Simon Bailey’s extensive West End credits include I Can’t Sing! The X-Factor Musical, Pharaoh in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Enjolras in the 21st Anniversary cast of Les Misérables (Queen’s Theatre) and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera. Simon is also a founder member of ‘Theatreland’s First Supergroup’, Teatro. Teatro achieved gold status with their eponymous debut album after just three weeks, making them one of the fastest selling musical theatre acts of all time.
Australian-born Declan Egan played Bob Gaudio in the Australian and New Zealand tour of JERSEY BOYS. Most recently, he appeared in the US Tour of The Book of Mormon. JERSEY BOYS at the Piccadilly Theatre marks his West End debut.
Fellow Australian Matt Hunt made his professional theatre debut in the Australian and New Zealand touring production of JERSEY BOYS and the London production also marked his West End debut. He originally joined the cast in 2014 as Norm Waxman.
Dayle Hodge joins the London cast straight from the UK & Ireland touring production of JERSEY BOYS, where he understudied and played Frankie Valli. His other West End credits include Les Misérables, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (original London cast) and Chip in the original London cast of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
JERSEY BOYS opened in London at the Prince Edward Theatre in 2008 and moved to the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2014. The show completes its first, record-breaking tour of the UK and Ireland on 5 March.
