‘Jersey Boys’ coming to Opera House Broadway series next season

The production will be a full Equity tour, meaning all the performers on stage are members of Actors Equity, the stage actors union. The show will reach Lexington more than a decade after its Broadway debut, and that is becoming the norm these days.
