Toronto Star Reports Jersey Boys Toronto Closing Aug. 22

June 30th, 2010


Richard Ouzounian of TheStar.com reports: A week after celebrating its millionth customer, the Toronto production of Jersey Boys announced that it will be closing on Aug. 22 after a run of two years and 830 performances.

The Tony Award-winning story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons has been incredibly successful, with record-breaking companies around the world, and its solid run in Toronto is no exception. It also now stands as the longest running show in the history of the Toronto Centre for the Arts.

The Toronto team of Des McAnuff and Sergio Trujillo were responsible for the show’s direction and choreography, respectively and McAnuff had always insisted “how proud I am to be associated with the production of this show in my hometown.”

The show has also been important to its Toronto cast members, most notably Jeff Madden, whose performance as Valli made him a star and earned him a Dora Award.

Producer Aubrey Dan said: “We owe a huge thanks to the City of Toronto. (It) embraced Jersey Boys from the start and it was thrilling to see audiences celebrate this incredible story and timeless music.”
The JERSEY BOYS Toronto cast is totally top-notch and extraordinary!! Hope you guys get a chance to check them out before they end their phenomenal run at the Toronto Centre for the Arts!


  1. Everybody is saying JB Toronto is closing Aug. 22 but nobody is saying why!!!! Maybe if there is a good reason we wouldn’t feel so upset about the news.

  3. No they don’t “need” to but iit would be nice considering they had extended the run till Sept 12.. Then out of the blue they just announce it’s closing.
