The annual Tony Award nominees for theater and musicals were released today and La Jolla Playhouse has a thing or two to celebrate. “Jersey Boys,” the La Jolla Playhouse-born musical, is the recipient of eight nominations.

Several weeks ago, voiceofsandiego.org reporter Will Carless sat down with LJP’s artistic director (and two-time Tony Award winner) Des McAnuff.

“Jersey Boys” opened at La Jolla Playhouse under McAnuff’s direction last year and then moved to New York’s Broadway where it has been – obviously – very successful.

McAnuff is nominated for “Best Direction in a Musical.” “Jersey Boys” has also been nominated for eight Drama Desk Awards.
