Superb show made stunning by a stunning lead! Ben Jennings was flawless in his performance! He played Frankie Valli to perfection! Amazing acting with amazing vocals! What a treat! Very talented young man! Made the show!!
Jersey boys has always got a good crowd going due to popular songs from great song writers! A lot of mixed reviews everywhere about new cast changes! Michael Watson was earmarked last year to become the new Frankie! It didn't matter that there were a lot more talented guys who could play this part. That's the way things work in this business.Right place,right time. No not as good as others but he does get through the show which is what counts. Nobody is saying bad reviews just not the same quality.
Loved the music since I grew up with it but the filthy language was ongoing.
No wow factor for me! Only 5/10! Standard has certainly dropped since the move to new theatre! I had seen Michael last year .he was really diabolical.(sorry) yes some improvement this year.but not to the high level I would expect and have seen many times before from the leads in this show. Not for me!
Still a very good show whoever plays the lead. Would like it to be excellent but you can't have it all! In sure casting is hard to get right as the vocals have to be a certain standard. Last couple of year we we're spoil with the likes of Ryan Molloy and the superb Ben Jennings! Can't for the life of me figure out why he didn't get a main Frankie this year! I'm sure the show will go on for a while yet with the film being released this week. Plus sells itself after all these years.
Very mixed reviews! I think as I have found the show to be great when a great performer is playing the lead! Still good when the lead is good but no more. Everyone I have seen can do the part just very different levels that's all. This year not as strong as previous cast but that doesn't make it bad. Just not brilliant as perhaps it should be. After all the tickets are still expensive so should be getting the very best for the money!
Something missing in the cast at the new theatre. Found the lead to be poor in comparison to what I have seen before. Very panto style faces pulled when acting. Not how the real Frankie Valli should be portrayed I'm sure! Singing was just ok. Again over the top with really pushed out notes. Enjoyed the show, just not the lead!
Good music with superb band. Very average guy playing the lead. Struggled in parts with the singing as the show went on. Annoying acting. He exaggerated every scene which silly face expressions. Wouldn't bother going again. Would rather buy Frankie Valli cd and listen at home!
Had a wonderful time at this theatre. Show was brilliant and so was Michael Watson. I don't understand the negative reviews. He wa tremendous in the role and hit all the high notes. Rest of cast was also great. Smaller theatre but more intimate. Great songs, great cast. Really recommend. Will be going back again and hope to see Michael Watson again. Loved it.
Took my husband for his 50th birthday, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC, what a show!!!
