Big drop in singing standard since the move to smaller theatre! Looks like cheaper younger actors have been drafted in to cover costs. Not a bad show just not up there with others. The guy we saw had problems staying in tune! Over acted the part so came across a bit manic in parts. Good band saved the day!
My girlfriend and i attended the show on may 8th, oh what a night, fantastic, the show, the performers, the songs, everything, we had a great time and judging by the reactions of the rest of the audience, we weren't the only ones, lengthy rounds of applause at the end of some of the songs and at the interval, dancing in the aisles at the end and everyone i saw were leaving the theatre with big smiles on their faces, can you ask for more than that on a night out?, i would definately watch Jersey Boys again and would have no hesitation in highly recommending this great show
One of the better jukebox musicals. Good catchy songs. The lead we had on for the mat was sandy Moffat. Singing was bad in parts good in others. Didn't look as if he knew what he was doing some of the time. Show wasn't bad on the whole. Seen better for the money.
Got jersey boy tickets from my girlfriend as she wanted me to see show with her! Not a great fan of musicals but had heard good things about this show from her as she has been quite a few times in the past. Got seats near the front of stage. Bit close for me but she was happy with them. Well it started off a bit slow. The music is not bad. Didn't like the bloke who was playing the lead. Michael Watson. Came across as over confidence with not enough real talent to sustain his actions. He was out of tune a lot. Even my girlfriend said it wasn't as good as before. The best one was the guy who played tommy!
Went to show 2nd may also. Saw Michael Watson play the lead last year so when I saw it was him on again that night was a bit put off as my last visit wasn't impressed by this performer. Well I could see he must of had lots of extra coaching as he played the part with more confidence but the overall performance hadn't really improved! Still very flat with his singing but this time his acting was too over the top as well! I'm sure this is ok for most people who don't know just how this part should be played. Which has been played by really excellent actors in the past so this is why Michael looks just average for me. Not the show it was!
Just travelling home on the train and am moved to comment on this evenings performance, which was superb. Also to rebut some of the previous comments regarding Michael Watson's performances. He may not have been up to it earlier but he has certainly grown into the role and received a well-deserved standing ovation. If you're considering going, consider no longer, it's well worth it.
I was lucky enough to find myself with a ticket to the show on Saturday 26th April, catching John Lloyd Youngs penultimate show. As a devotee of musical theatre was simply blown away by this - with very little imagination this coud have been the originals and is a must see for any music lover
My partner and I enjoyed the show but to me it seemed to be done on the cheap. The only part that seemed like a London show was when they performed at the end which was a bit more glitzy. The seats are not very comfortable and the prices for drinks, sweets and ice cream are extortionate!
One of the top shows in west end. Or as has been up to now! Went last night to see jly as I know he is a great performer. I saw him in New York a few years back when the show first came out. Will have to say Ryan Molloy over here is just as good! Also some of the covers(ben jennings, dan burton) have been just as good.We had Michael Watson playing the lead as John was off sick. Really not as good as he should be. Flat notes with terrible over acting! Felt I wasn't watching the same show! Really wasn't enjoyable! Theatre looked half empty which wasn't a surprise! Will think twice about going back!
Saw this show on 15 April and thought it was fantastic - have been to many shows in London and this was certainly up there with the rest. Piccadilly Theatre also good with very comfortable seats. Well done to all the cast - I will certainly be recommending this show!
