The musical has won a Tony Award as well. As per reports, the event will be produced by Graham King and the original Broadway producers the Dodgers, with Frankie Valli and fellow Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio.
Priyanka, seemingly confirmed the casting by sharing a screenshot of an article from a publication on her Instagram stories. "Wohhooo let's get it @nickjonas!" she gushed. The outlet was the first to report the news about the project. Reportedly, the project will come together as a PG-13 undertaking.
Nick will sing the song catalogue that Valli and the Four Seasons built up in the Broadway show. Jersey Boys ran on Broadway from 2005 to 2017 and is one of the longest-running shows in Broadway history. The musical follows the story of Valli, Gaudio, Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, and how they came together to form the internationally successful rock group The Four Seasons in the 1960s. Some of their most popular hits include Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like a Man and Sherry. Jersey Boys is not going to be Nick’s first appearance in theatre. He has appeared on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Annie Get Your Gun, Beauty and the Beast and Les Misérables.
