Another Great Review This Week!

December 9th, 2005

The latest Jersey Boys review out there is from Gay City News. Christopher Byrne, like so many others, loved it! Here’s a sampling of what he said:

    With “Jersey Boys,” writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, composer Bob Gaudio and lyricist Bob Crewe have demonstrated that there might be decent shows to be developed from pre-existing material. Not just decent, in fact—downright entertaining.
    It reminds us that perhaps it’s time to expand the mythic “American Songbook” to include not just Gershwin, Berlin and Porter but musical innovators like Gaudio and Crewe as well.
    Director Des McAnuff keeps the action moving, and makes the entire evening a wonderful spectacle and a real breakthrough for this type of show. I expect it will rival Frankie Valli’s career for longevity.

  1. At last: Bob Gaudio and Bob Crewe where they deserve to be, up with George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. Charles
