Jersey Boys in Pittsburgh–One Class Act!

January 16th, 2009

Brad Hundt of the Observer-Reporter raves about the Pittsburgh production of JERSEY BOYS!

According to Hundt, “Jersey Boys” could be boiled down to a simple equation. Take the no-bull New Jersey swagger of “The Sopranos,” and add the Kennedy-era fashions of “Mad Men” and the rags-to-riches-to-rags storytelling of VH1′s “Behind the Music,” and you get “Jersey Boys.” That’s not to dismiss “Jersey Boys” as a by-the-numbers concoction, though. Far from it. This musical look back at the tumultuous rise and fall of the Four Seasons is a surprisingly engrossing tale. And the Broadway hit and Tony-winner also pulls off another unlikely feat – it breathes new life into mothball-scented Four Seasons hits like “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Sherry” that have been hammered into submission by oldies radio.
