Casting is now complete for The Muny’s upcoming production of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which will play the outdoor St. Louis venue July 9–16.
Directed and choreographed by Josh Rhodes (Bright Star) with music direction by Rick Bertone, the cast will be led by the previously reported Emmy nominee Mark Ballas (Dancing with the Stars, Jersey Boys) as Frankie Valli, Bobby Conte Thornton (A Bronx Tale) as Bob Gaudio, Nicolas Dromard (Mary Poppins, Jersey Boys) as Tommy DeVito, and Keith Hines (Jersey Boys national tour) as Nick Massi.
The quartet will be joined by Neal Benari as Gyp DeCarlo and Nicholas Rodriguez as Bob Crewe. The ensemble will feature Michelle Aravena, Candi Boyd, Phillip Johnson-Richardson, Tommy Martinez, Carissa Massaro, Trina Mills, Harris Milgrim, Dakota Mullins, Ben Nordstrom, Michael Seltzer, Gabi Stapula, and Victor Wisehart as well as the Muny Teen youth ensemble.
The limited engagement will also have scenic design by Paul Tate dePoo III, costume design by Andrea Lauer, lighting design by Rob Denton, sound design by John Shivers and David Patridge, video design by Matthew Young, and wig design by Robert Pickens, with production stage manager J. Jason Daunter.
After Broadway, Off-Broadway, touring, and international productions, the Muny will be the first regional theatre to create its own production of the award-winning musical.
The musical, which tells the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, opened in New York November 6, 2005, and ended its 11-year Broadway run January 15, 2017. The musical returned to New York in November 2017 at Off-Broadway’s New World Stages.
