If you read my short bio at the about me section, you probably are aware that I am a musical theater fan. Any types of Broadway shows; be it something full of non stop music for two hours or something that has less music with lots of dialogues. For me, each Broadway show is unique. You cannot simply compare the magic of The Phantom of the Opera to let’s say Kinky Boots or Cabaret.
Fortunately, i am also an oldies music fan. So when boo said he wanted to take me to see Jersey Boys, well without any doubt: I AM IN! 🙂
Off we went to August Wilson Theatre to see Jersey Boys.
Did we enjoy it? Hell, we LOVED it!
The show started at around 7.15 ish PM and ended at around 9.45 ish PM. Even though i was not really a fan of The Four Seasons but i grew up listening to some of their songs (thanks mom and pops) and my favorites were in the show as well. Sherry, Let’s hang on, and Can’t take my eyes off you — boy, i could listen to those over and over again.
Acting was superb, singing was more than superb, costume design was oh so gorgeous. Total package. Even for first timer who never hear of Frankie Valli and the Four seasons, they will surely be entertained.
If i have to put a critic, it would be the Let’s hang on part. Why, oh why, it was not a complete song?!? As a fan of let’s hang on (ok i am totally out of proportion lol) i felt a little bit disappointed. Nevertheless, i would not mind seeing Jersey Boys again and again!
Do see Jersey Boys! You will thank me later! Learn more here
PS: for those planning to take the little ones, profanity and languages might seem a little bit too harsh and some of the scene can be quite disturbing so i do not really recommend this to kids under 10.
PPS: because i love let’s hang on so if you bumped me at a nearby Barnes and noble music dvd section and catch me singing that tune, please say hello 😉 or if you think i am nuts then just pretend i am not there lol.
Other than that, enjoy!
Yours Truly 🙂
