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.

Who loves you pretty baby?!,

Magic. This show is simply magic. Words cannot do the show justice! It is an experience sitting there in the August Wilson Theatre. You can't help but get lost in the tale of Frankie, Tommy, Nick and Bob. The cast is amazing. They truly pull you into the story they are presenting. I grew up with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and this show made me fall in love with the music all over again. I was lucky enough to be on the second row the night I saw the show and it was incredible. I felt like I was part of the show. John Lloyd Young, Christian Hoff, J. Robert Spencer and Daniel Reichard are all incredible performers and the nicest people you could hope to meet. While in New York I had the chance to see three other shows as well (Wicked, Sweeney Todd, and Rent) and they were amazing but Jersey Boys is something else. It really is "too good to be true!" I loved every moment of it; my face hurt at intermission because I'd been smiling so hard! See the show and you'll know what I mean!!

Music and Magic,

If you are trying to show someone why live theater has it all over movies or TV for exciting entertainment, bring that someone to Jersey Boys. Without backing down from the harshness and the heartache in their lives, this show presents these four young men as real people, with real talent, which made a real difference in the lives of people who grew up enjoying these great sounds. The day I saw it (matinee on August 2), most of the people in the audience looked old enough to have screamed at their kids for liking the Four Seasons, but when the guys finally got it together with "Sherry," these people shrieked with joy. They clapped, stamped, and would have lit matches if the fire laws had allowed them to!For so many reasons, this show is pure magic. Seldom has the Tony gone to a worthier production.

Truly Amazing!,

reviewer: from Rancho Murieta, CA
My wife and I saw The Jersey Boys in March for her Birthday and what a treat! This is a can't miss show! The four Tony's they received were more than deserving! It was actually an understatement of the show. John Lloyd Young and the rest of the cast were spectacular! I would see this show every week if I could! We live on the West Coast and can't wait to see it again! If you are in New York, don't miss this show at any cost!

Leaves me Breathless!!!!,

reviewer: from Jersey Girl
I saw the show for the second time on July 12th. I cannot express how wonderfull it is and how it depicts those great Italian guys and how their emotional personality and musical backgrounds blend now and how great the real 4 seasons were back then. I have met Frankie about 12 years ago and I think he is just as surprised and elated to see his life played out by all the fabulous singers, musicians,actors,producers etc. I hope the show goes on forever so I can see it atleast once a year untill I am too old to get there. Best of luck guys you all deserve it. I have to say after speaking to some of the cast members you were all great!! Stay sweet and stay humble it will keep you all happy!!! Anyone who reads this get your tickets now don't wait!!! You will never regret it!!!

YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS SHOW,
Jul 12, 2006
reviewer: from USA
This show was great. Fast paced, great music, great singing and acting by all the members of the ensemble.But the great memories it brings back are worth the price of the ticket. We are returning for our second show in October. The lead singer, can out--sing Frankie Valli, but the stories behind the music are so heartfelt and genuine. Do not listen to the print media, GO SEE THIS SHOW. I would recommend this to any baby boomer or older. DO NOT BRING KIDS PLEASE, we need our "own" show to savor!
