It's terrific. Jersey Boys is dynamically alive in music while, as a drama, it catches the very texture, almost the smell, of its time.

Great show but what's with the ticket prices?,
Jan 24, 2008
reviewer: from Anytown, AT 55555
Saw the show and it was really great! Purchased tickets weeks ahead online for $102.00. Couldn't make that show so had hotel get them a few days prior for $250.00! These were ALL mezzanine seats. Everything was sold out, or so we were told. Some tickets on line were, again mezzanine, over $300.00! I personally went to the theater and tickets were being purchased (at the ticket window) for one of the sold out shows, right up to showtime. Mezzanine seats were $97.00.Not peculiar to this show or theater, I'm sure, but what gives? Might add that I was advised not to try to sell my $102.00 tickets for more than face value or risk arrest.

Jersey Boys! - Oh, what a night!,
Jul 25, 2007
reviewer: from Brooklyn, NY USA
My mother and I saw Jersey Boys on Broadway this past Friday night. It was FANTABULOUS! I grew up with the music of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, being that they were my fathers' favorite musical group. Not only did the show make me feel nostalgic, but the performances themselves were incredibly impressive! We had the great privilege of seeing John Lloyd Young onstage, who won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Frankie Valli. The show never slowed down for a minute - the music was exhilirating and the voices of the actors who played the Four Seasons were absolutely beautiful. Their harmonies were mesmerizing - its a wonder that these guys never became famous singers in their own right! I would highly recommend this show to anybody - whether you're a fan of the Four Seasons or not, this is a must-see for ALL music lovers.

"The Jersey Boys" language,
Jun 28, 2007
reviewer: from Hanover, PA USA
I just saw "The Jersey Boys" yesterday, June 27, 2007. I enjoyed the music and story very much.The thing I didn't enjoy and don't feel is necessary to learn the story of Frankie Valli is the f--- word, used constantly. Some swearing is tolerable, but I winced every time the f--- word was used.

The Crowd Goes Wild,
Jun 27, 2007
reviewer: from -
Jersey Boys is a wonderful and exciting show full of laughs, cries, and songs. This is a must see for any Frankie Valli fan. I have seen the show 5 times and will be back for some more. The cast and crew is incredibly gracious and kind. The stage door is the place to be after the show. The actors will sign autographs and take pictures (after you seen the show, you will definitely want pictures with the 'Boys'). I have sat in all sections of the theatre and each section has its pros and cons. For example, first row: pros-see the actors facial expressions, get winks and smiles from the Boys during the show, have a 'first row experience'. cons-little leg room, have to tilt head upwards (as the stage is much higher than the seats). Mezz: pros-see the entire stage, good sound. cons-can't see the facial expressions of the actors well.

 

Overall a 5 star show. If you can't get tickets consider standing room and cancellation line. It is more than worth it.

Standing Ovations!,
Jun 27, 2007
reviewer: from Houston, TX
This show is unbelievable! Didn't understand hype at first. Narratives don't usually work, nor do rock concerts. Couldn't have been more wrong! This show's about a different time, when a handshake closed deals. Rags to riches story comes naturally. We've all seen bigger names & shows from Broadway to the West End. But to us baby-boomers, we embraced that simpler era. Fortyplus years of memories rushed back. Your blue-collar neighborhood, your pals, your music, that boy or girl who broke your heart. Or better yet, you're there together! Above expectations met, even after waiting three hours in the cancellation line and all getting house seats for $120 each! Total strangers, now lifelong friends. Cast graciously sign autographs at stage door. Be patient, especially for John Lloyd Young who has to cool his voice down after his incredible transformation. But they're ALL great, from the extras to the horn section to Hoff and others. DON'T wait for the touring companies. See this show now!
