December 1, 2010 - Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning musical, recently celebrated its fifth anniversary on Broadway, and to mark the occasion, Commissioner Katherine Oliver of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment presented the show with a proclamation on behalf of Mayor Bloomberg, naming Sunday, November 7 as Jersey Boys Day.

The proclamation read, in part: “The more than 2.5 million people who have come to see Jersey Boys are…proof of theatre’s continuing relevance and vitality. Today, I join with all New Yorkers in giving Jersey Boys a standing ovation in honor of this important milestone.”

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi, a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. The New York production of Jersey Boys, which opened to critical acclaim on Sunday, November 6, 2005, remains among Broadway’s top selling musicals and is the longest running show in the history of the August Wilson Theatre, where it has played over 2,000 performances.
