The JERSEY BOYS first national tour’s return to DC is thrilling critics and audiences! Check out sneak peeks of rave reviews, along with links to photos from the opening night cast party celebration!
Doug Poms, MD Theatre Guide: Jersey Boys is an electric show that not only thoroughly entertains us but also tells us an interesting, complex and poetic story of one of the most talented and prolific American pop bands. You may be surprised at how thrilling their nostalgic songs sound live, and with this great cast in this fine production, this iconic show, that is certain to enthrall audiences for years to come, looks as good as ever.
Jane Horwitz, The Washington Post: From the moment the guys playing the Four Seasons break into â€œSilhouettes,â€ the show has you hooked. Soon youâ€™re hearing â€œYouâ€™re the Apple of My Eye,â€ â€œEarth Angelâ€ and â€œSunday Kind of Love,â€ all leading up to the Four Seasonsâ€™ true breakthrough song, â€œSherry,â€ featuring Valliâ€™s honeyed falsetto. It doesnâ€™t really matter if this isnâ€™t your era. The music will pull you in.
Wendy Gordon, Hollywood on the Potomac: Many of this cast were here with the touring company a couple of years ago, and shockingly, have not become bored nor jaded, describing how each matinee and evening is a labor of love. I believe them. Who wouldnâ€™t want to, if we had the talent, tell this story of courage, tenacity and talent on a nightly basis? Who wouldnâ€™t want to sing these songs out loud? Show of hands. I join you.
