Calgary Crowd Capitvated by Jersey Boys!

July 2nd, 2012

Mike Morrison has posted a rave review of the JERSEY BOYS first national tour in Calgary on “Mike’s Bloggity Blog.” Here’s a sneak peek:

The success of Jersey Boys is no fluke. Four Tonys, thousands of performances all around the world and it’s currently being developed into a feature film. But this was the first time the show had come to Calgary and if you didn’t know better, you would have thought that the crowd thought they were actually at a real Frankie Valli concert. There was hooping and hollering, standing ovations for individual performances, and dancing, lots of dancing, it was perfect for the musical that is really more of a concert anyway, a really, really fun concert. (As an aside, I’d like to hug the four women in the front row who bopped along to the entire show. You ladies looked like a blast, let’s party at Cowboys.)

This production of the show stars Joseph Leo Bwarie as Valli, it’s a sensational tour de force performance that was worthy of the numerous ovations he received. The highs and lows of one history’s most successful bands was perfectly portrayed, bringing us along on a journey that just happened to be full of songs that everyone already happened to know the lyrics to anyway.
