WATCH: TDF's 'Jersey Boys' Conversation

Date: Dec 03, 2021

Tony-nominated writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice discuss their harmonious collaboration

Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice are funny guys, but that's no surprise to Jersey Boys fans. The two earned Tony nominations for their clever book to the hit musical about The Four Seasons, taking a Rashomon-style approach to the band's evolution with every member getting a chance to tell his side of the story. Jersey Boys recently resumed performances at Off Broadway's New World Stages, so we reunited these longtime collaborators to chat about how they met (the late, great director Stanley Donen was involved!), their creative process and the upcoming Jersey Boys Live! stream starring Nick Jonas. If you weren't able to tune in live, you can watch a recording below. Captions are available.
