Josh Austin has posted a fabulous review on BroadwayWorld.com of the JERSEY BOYS second national tour production in Syracuse at The Landmark! Check out a sneak peek:
The obvious hero of the group, Valli, is played by the short, dreamy Brad Weinstock, and Jersey native. His incredible tenor is one that matches Valliâ€™sâ€”albeit his grandiose notes were sometimes lost in the drum riffs. Weinstock, who and played Joe Pesci in an earlier run in Las Vegas, gives an innocent, lovable version of the leading man.
The rest of the group falls right in line. It is truly is like watching the real life version of a coming of age band. Brandon Andrus (Nick Massi), Colby Foytik (Tommy DeVito) and Jason Kappus (Bob Gaudio) give stellar performances and deliver the nasally vocals that baby boomers shiver at.
For someone like me, who did not grow up with The Four Seasons, this musical is still an epic must see. This tour delivers a performance that carries the bandâ€™s grit and glam. The vocals are stellar; the cast is The Four Seasons’ redux.
