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.

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!

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.

Awesome performance.,
Apr 16, 2007
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!
