Jersey Boys Reviews

Blockbuster and award winning London show, Jersey Boys is the saga of Frankie Valli and Four Seasons and their rise to the super stardom followed by troubled relationships and bitterness. The London jukebox musical is an amazing saga of skyhigh rise to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which was followed by friction in friendship.

The New Jersey boy Tommy DeVito played by Jon Boydon, a small time criminal in his own words and also the founder of original band narrates the heart touching saga. Michael Watson as Frankie Castelluccio is simply superb with quite a distinct falsetto voice. Edd Posts portrayed the role of Bob Galdio, the teen writer and pens some chartbusting hits like "Sherry", "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don’t Cry".

All the actors are simply brilliant with outstanding musical performances featuring some great numbers like "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)" and "Can’t Take My Eyes Off You". The huge Broadway hit has earned great success in London Westend as well. With its deep roots in New Jersey, the spectacular production is an entertaining experience for the viewers. For avid fans of Valli, the show is a must watch.

Jersey Boys has a gripping and interesting story with chartbusting musical numbers. For those who really want to enjoy a good jukebox musical, then head towards Piccadilly Theatre. Since the opening scene till the end of the show, the story, performances and music grips the audience completely. I would like to give four stars to this show and recommend to theatre goers. ~~~~ by london-theatretickets.com Teams
