Just seen Jersey Boys again for 2nd time. A wonderful show, full of nostalgia and fantastic performances. Im recommending it to everyone!
Fantastic, a really wonderful upbeat musical show. Planning to see it again for a second time. truly magnificent.
A very good show glad we came to London to see the show. We came from Devon.
Winner of 21 Major awards worldwide, including the Olivier Award for BEST NEW MUSICAL.
In the genre of jukebox musicals, Jersey boys is one of the best. It tells the story of the rise to stardom of a group of four young men from New Jersey who create music with their own distinctive and unique sound, charting their successes as well as their trials and tribulations on there way to being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of fame.
The story is told in four sections from the perspective of each band member and runs with a theme of each season of the year representing a different period in life of the band. This is an incredibly slick show with more than a hint of Goodfellas style gangster drama. Having grown up in a world of gangsters and street crime where street credibility is of the utmost importance the band are launched into the spotlight with their first big hit, SHERRY.
From then on, the band experience the highs of super stardom playing sold out gigs all over the world. However, the fame and fortune comes at a cost as the pressures of their success coupled with drugs and gamboling debts takes its toll on their relationships with their families and each other.
At time the show has the feel of a rock concert and the new arrangements by original composer Bob Gaudio really give the songs and added punch when performed live. The cast is utterly brilliant throughout but special mentions must be made about Ryan Molloy as Frankie Valli who gives a star performance singing with Valli's trademark falsetto sound. While the story is compelling and always entertaining, the sheer volume of hits packed into this show is incredible and serves as a reminder of just how brilliant the Four Seasons were.
The Four seasons are one of the greatest bands in music history, selling more than 100 thousand records worldwide. Songs in the show include hits such as: BEGGIN’, CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU, OH WHAT A NIGHT, WALK LIKE A MAN, BYE BYE BABY (BABY GOODBYE), SHERRY, BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY and many more.
Please be aware Jersey Boys contains genuine New Jersey language which may not be suitable for younger audiences – parental guidance advised.
