Matt Nolan was the only new cast member to stand out ! Not really impressed with the new Frankie's! Something missing. No extra mile in their performances. Can do the job but no more. The lead for Frankie should be great. Good show still. The music carries it. Smaller theatre but good sound. Certainly has changed since the move.
Show was spoiled by ra-ra ladies behind me who say along very loudly and very flat. Patrons next to me agreed. We all asked them to stop but were ignored and greeted with sniggers. Theatre staff's solution was to move us to very inferior seats at the back leaving the lovely ladies to enjoy themselves. Manager later offered apology but said it was all too difficult. Not impressed- it's a musical not a pop show and we didn't pay to hear tipsy patrons attempts at singing.
Big favourite of mine! Love the era of this type of music! Michael does an ok job as Frankie. Just good, not the best I've seen but can get through the show. Which sells itself after all these years so a fun night out all the same!!
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
