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.

A Very Pleasant Show,
Apr 29, 2007
reviewer: from Kansas City
Great entertainment--not THE best show I've ever seen, though, in spite of the praise here. Awkward dialogue at times and the one female song was not good at all ("My boyfriend's back). Found out that Wed matinee does not feature the tony award winning lead. Michael Longorio (who does two shows a week) played Frankie Valli and was excellent. I just wish I knew how much the two actors differ! We felt a little cheated at getting the #2 guy. I would rate Chicago, Phantom, Cats and several others higher than J-Boys. That being said, I did enjoy myself, loving the music--"Oh, What a Night" being my favorite. Audience loved it from comments going out. I might have just had too-high expectations. The young man who played Bob Gaurdio the songwriter for the 4 Seasons had a great voice and carried the show at times. A very talented cast overall--just don't expect to leave the theater feeling as if you'd seen the second coming-- and you'll love it. Great escapism, that's for sure.

reviewer: from Miami, Fl.
Last April 4th, I went to see the play in New York City with my wife, eventhough she was not able to understand everything in the dialogues, she enjoyed the music and the performance of those extraordinary actors as well as I did.It was like a journey back to youth. I strongly recomend this play, it is worth what you pay!

Fantastic,
Feb 10, 2007
reviewer: from Kinnelon \"Jersey\"
What can be said that hasn't been said already. One of the most entertaining shows I've seen, and I go to the threatre regularly; my wife's favorite. The acting and stage choreography was excellent. My wife and I are going for the third time this afternoon. We keep taking friends to share this great experience with. Much of the music wasn't my thing when I was growing up, but now I am obsessed with the CD and play it constanly in my car. I've already worn out one CD and on my second. My 22 years old son who's into real strange heavy rock music went with us and loved it.

Oh My God -- What a Show!!!,
Feb 09, 2007
reviewer: from Coram, NY
I loved this show so much, I am absolutely obsessesed with it now. I am seeing it again on Valentines day. Okay for kids, although it does have some strong language (the "F" bomb). So if you don't want your child hearing that, than don't take them. Dinner at Tony Di Napoli's on 43rd is a great place to eat, and John Lloyd Young frequents the place quite often. The theatre seats were pretty snug, but once into the show, you wouldn't even care. GO SEE THIS SHOW!!!!! I've seen alot of b'way shows and enjoyed most of them thoroughly, but I can honestly say this to date is my all time favorite>
