Jersey Boys in Chicago Thrills Critic Five Years Later!

May 18th, 2012

Phil Potempa states that it’s easy to fall in love with JERSEY BOYS stage charm again and again. Here’s a sneak peek of his fabulous review:

Actor Joseph Leo Bwarie hits every high note with perfection. And in the final scenes, you can see his eyes welling with tears delivering lines with impact.

Boyish yet accomplished Preston Truman Boyd brings a fresh persona to Gaudio.

He’s the man who came up with his idea for their song “Big Girls Don’t Cry” after watching a late night TV movie 1955 western called “Tennessee’s Partner” and a scene when actor John Payne slaps co-star Rhonda Fleming and she replies with the words that became the song’s title and lyrics.

John Gardiner nicely captures the ego and confidence of DeVito, while Michael Lomenda provides stage balance for the group with his wry delivery humor and rich, deep singing voice.

Five years after seeing “Jersey Boys” for the first time, this is a musical that still brings me to my feet offering a standing ovation, along with the audiences around me, every time I enjoy this musical concert story with a theme that matters.
