JB National Tour Previews Begin Tomorrow in SF!

November 30th, 2006

Richard Dobbs of the Bay Area Reporter provides an in-depth look at Jersey Boys, the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award winner that launches its national tour in San Francisco tomorrow.

Ironically, director Des McAnuff, whose Broadway credits include Big River and The Who’s Tommy, summarily rejected the idea for a Four Seasons musical when writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice first pitched the idea.

Dobbs talks to McAnuff about what convinced him to direct Jersey Boys; the amazing success of JB at La Jolla Playhouse and on Broadway; and the launch of the national tour.
