Jersey Boys #HipNJ Premiere!

For over a decade, Jersey Boys has dazzled audiences all over the world with the sweet sounds of Newark natives Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons…but never in #HipNJ! That’s about to change, thanks to New Brunswick’s State Theatre New Jersey.

FINALLY, for the first time ever, the Broadway smash hit will be making its Garden State debut on Friday, October 13 at 8PM! Other dates include Saturday, October 14 at 2pm and 8pm and Sunday, October 15 at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets range from $35-$98.

Jersey Boys is the 2006 Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Award®-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds, and sold 175 million records worldwide—all before they were 30! Jersey Boys features their hit songs “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh What a Night,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

The Jersey Boys creative team includes two-time Tony Award®-winning director Des McAnuff, book writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, composer Bob Gaudio, lyricist Bob Crewe, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.

Jenning’s will be joining the Dancing with the Stars family which includes former New York Giants player, Lawrence Taylor. They have had a huge line up of former and current football players that have danced their way to the top of the leader board, like Season 3 winner: Emmitt Smith, Season 12 winner: Hines Ward, and Season 14 winner: Donald Driver.

Rashad played for the New York Giants from 2014-2016 but was recently released this past February. Although he might be gone from the Giants, we at Hip NJ will always consider him a Giant in our hearts.

A few of his cast mates this season include four time gold medalist, Simone Biles, former olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan, and former professional actor and wrestler Mr. T.

Tune in on March 20th, to see if Rashad Jennings moves are as good off the field as they are on.
