  5. Was in Toronto last month on holiday from
    scotland and I went to see “Jersey Boys”. Just wanted to say I think its the best show I’ve been to and I go to the theatre a lot. The cast were tremendous and the whole evening was unforgettable. Well done!

  6. I was recently in Toronto and saw Jersey Boys for the second time…….this was, by far, the best cast! Daniel Robert Sullivan was fabulous as Tommy……he did not miss his character for one second. Would love to see him again. We also met Timothy Sell after the show and were impressed at what a truly nice person he seemed to be. All in all, they were #1.

  7. Saw the show three times and it only got better. Too bad it will be ending in a couple of weeks.
    Loved the show and was especially impressed by Sullivan’s performance. For me, he stole the show.
    Truly an attractive bad boy with appeal. Loved it!!!

  8. Saw the show for the 8th time this week. Danielle Robert Sullivan’s performance as a “Bad Jersey Boy” was outstanding.
    How can one pick a favorite. They were all excellent performers!

  9. I was there last night for the final performance. I was the one with the sign wanting the hug. 10 times I have been there and could go another 10 or 100….Tommy, you are amazing.
