The Show Will Go On in North York! JERSEY BOYS Not Affected by G20 Closures and Welcomes a 2-for-1 Boys of Summer Sale

 The G20 Summit in Toronto may be closing the downtown Entertainment District, but the show will go on at the Toronto Centre for the Arts where JERSEY BOYS is still going strong in its second year on stage.

From June 21- 27 JERSEY BOYS will be the only Broadway musical running in the GTA. A short subway ride from the G20 Summit, and steps from the North York Centre Subway Station, the theatre is located just off Highway 401 at Yonge Street, with plenty of parking.

JERSEY BOYS tells the story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, following their unlikely rags-toriches rise from the streets of Newark to the heights of stardom. How did four blue-collar kids become one of the greatest successes in pop music history? You ask four guys, and you get four different answers!
