Jersey Boys is not recommended for all ages. The show contains smoke, gun shots, strobe lights, drug references, sexual situations and profane “authentic Jersey language.”
A WORD ABOUT THE LANGUAGE IN Jersey Boys
Full Disclosure: The characters in Jersey Boys, like many of the real people they portray, sometimes use language that may shock some members of our audience. But it is certainly not our intention to offend. We have no wish to take anybody in the theater “out” of the show, only a desire to honestly tell the story of four guys who were more likely to end up in Sing Sing than the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. To give you an authentic experience, we present the Four Seasons songs as they sounded on the records, and present the guys themselves as they sounded on the streets – where tough language was nothing less than a badge of honor and a means of survival.
