Critic Connects With Chicago Jersey Boys!

December 1st, 2007

Indiana Business Journal reporter Lou Harry admits that after seeing several other jukebox musical whose scores consisted of pre-existing songbooks, he admits that Jersey Boys wan’t high on his must-see list. However, relentless praise pulled Harry in, and he now admits he’s glad he saw the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award-winner in Chicago!

Harry states that the show clicks once it connects the desires of the characters with the desires of the audience. We knew from the beginning the string of hits—“Walk Like a Man,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” et al.—that these boys would create. But we didn’t care about them until the dangerous and charming, funny and sad Nick Massi (Michael Ingersoll), the ambitious, awkward and talented Bob Gaudio (Drew Gehling), the difficult-tofathom Tommy DeVito (Jeremy Kushnier) and Frankie Valli welcomed us into their lives.
