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!
Fab show! Seen ever Frankie in the last 6years. Loved a lot of them in the part. But no one sings lt like Ben Jennings or Ryan Molloy!! Great musical!
Show not up too the normal standard I have seen in the past since the move to the theatre! I'm sure the actors are all good but not all can sing this hard vocal! Saw show last weeks matinee. The lead Michael Watson just couldn't reach the notes in most songs. Sounded off key in the second act. I live up north so don't come down to London very often. But when I saw the show last year twice with Ryan Molloy. Once with Ben Jennings the shows were always top class! Both were superb!! Not the same this time!!
we went to see the jersey boys at the piccadilly theatre in london and it was the biggest let down i have ever seen they never sung one song all the way through the story was nothing to speak of and the seats were made for children so uncomfortable i was in so much pain we had to leave the theatre i would not reccomend it to anybody
Sadly this show has dropped standard as most west end shows after a few years of running. New shows normally pick the very best putting quality before costing. This gets the crowds coming to see top shows. It looks like after the money is made they cast performers on the cheap so the standard isn't as good. Saw this first hand in watching this show many times before it moved. And after in the last month in the new theatre. Michael Watson playing the lead just isn't up to the very high standard we have seen in the past. Vocals just not up too it. Spoils the whole west end reputation for being the best. Nothing more than getting your money for second rate performances.
