‘Jersey Boys’ Announces Cast for National Tour

Eric Chambliss, Matt Faucher, Devon Goffman, and Jon Hacker

Casting has been announced for the 2021-22 touring season of the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

The cast will be led by Eric Chambliss (Bob Gaudio), Matt Faucher (Nick Massi), Devon Goffman (Tommy DeVito) and Jon Hacker (Frankie Valli) as The Four Seasons.

The ensemble of Jersey Boys includes Justin Albinder, Amy Coelho, Kenneth Quinney Francoeur, Samantha Marisol Gershman, Katie Goffman, Antonio King, Connor Lyon, Kevin Patrick Martin, Sean McGee, Hamilton Moore, Alec Michael Ryan and Bruno Vida.

Embarking on its 15th touring season, Jersey Boys will hold technical rehearsals and tour opening in Detroit, MI at the Music Hall (December 12-18), and then kick off the 2021-22 touring season that will feature return engagements in Dallas, TX; Norfolk, VA; Minneapolis, MN; Denver, CO; Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; Pittsburgh, PA and Washington DC among many others. Since the tour launched in 2006, Jersey Boys has been booked into 250 cities in 49 states in the US, 9 Canadian provinces, Monterrey, Mexico, and has played over 5,000 performances on tour across North America. The 2021-22 touring schedule is available here. Additional cities will be announced later.

Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, directed by two-time Tony Award®-winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Tony Award®-winner Sergio Trujillo. The production includes Music Supervision, Vocal/Dance Arrangements & Incidental Music by Ron Melrose and Orchestrations by Steve Orich.

Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.  They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story – a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Beggin’” and “Working My Way Back To You.”

Jersey Boys opened in New York on November 6, 2005 and by the time it closed on January 15, 2017, it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd StreetGreaseFiddler on the Roof, and The Producers. Blessed by awards all over the world, Jersey Boys has been seen by over 27 million people (as of July 2021).

The design and production team includes Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (Lighting Design), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projection Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig & Hair Design), Steve Rankin (Fight Director), Richard Hester (Production Supervisor), John Miller (Music Coordinator) and Tara Rubin Casting / Merri Sugarman, C.S.A.
