nter Sergio Trujillo.

The choreographer remembers the show’s early days in LaJolla, Calif., before it went on to Broadway (and four 2006 Tony Awards, including best musical). “I did a lot of research,” he said. “I had already done (the London stage musical) ‘Peggy Sue Got Married,’ so I had the dance vocabulary of the period.

“‘Jersey Boys’ had to look sexy and cool, but not presentational. The audience has to buy into it until they think they really are seeing boys from New Jersey. So the dances are simple, but very effective. I wanted it to feel as uncomplicated as the chorus to a song.”
