Add Jersey Boys to the List of Blockbusters in Australia!

July 8th, 2009

Cameron Woodhead of The Age states that Australian musical theatre fans have been treated to superlative productions of recent Broadway blockbusters. You can add JERSEY BOYS to the list. It’s a show packed with energy and talent and songs that make you want to dance in your seat.

Each of the original band members — Frankie Valli (Bobby Fox), Tommy DeVito (Scott Johnson), Nick Massi (Glaston Toft) and Bob Gaudio (Stephen Mahy) — takes a turn to narrate the action. And it must be said, the casting is inspired. The leads command the stage, bringing characters to life with authority and charisma; even the accents are on song.

For the olds, Jersey Boys will be a vibrant trip down memory lane. But even if you weren’t around in the ’60s, the quality of the performances will keep you thoroughly entertained.
