Jersey Boys Is Electrifying In Indianapolis!

January 15th, 2013

Tom Alvarez has posted a fantastic review of the JERSEY BOYS first national tour production, which is playing at the Murat Theatre at the Old National Centre in downtown Indianapolis through January 20. Here’s a preview:

“Jersey Boys” is much more than the usual musical, because it creates the illusion that one is actually at the Four Seasons’ appearances that take place throughout the show.

Outstanding in their characterizations, Cosgrove, Gardiner, Tomasso Antico (understudy for Miles Jacoby on Friday) and Lomenda, with their authentic-sounding Jersey accents, excelled at recreating the vocal blend and sound that was unique to the Four Seasons.

Nick Cosgrove was particularly impressive singing in a falsetto voice that nicely replicated that of Valli, but at times seemed to surpass, at least in range, that of the icon he played.

Also giving a stellar performance, as the fresh-faced youngest member and chief songwriter of the Four Seasons, was Antico as Bob Gaudio.

The supporting cast — most of whom performed multiple roles — was first-rate. Prominent among them were Kara Tremel as Valli’s wife, Mary Delgado, and Jonathan Hadley as Bob Crewe, the band’s first producer.
