Jersey Boys National Tour Dazzles DC!

Jersey Boys LogoThe 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 “Silhouettes,” the show has you hooked. Soon you’re hearing “You’re the Apple of My Eye,” “Earth Angel” and “Sunday Kind of Love,” all leading up to the Four Seasons’ true breakthrough song, “Sherry,” featuring Valli’s honeyed falsetto. It doesn’t really matter if this isn’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 wouldn’t want to, if we had the talent, tell this story of courage, tenacity and talent on a nightly basis? Who wouldn’t want to sing these songs out loud? Show of hands. I join you.

  1. I first discovered the magic that is Jersey Boys on Halloween 2009 in DC. And now, 65 shows and 11 cities later, I am so thrilled that the show is back in DC! The crowds are loving it and are much more enthusiastic this time around (which is good, because they were too reserved back in 2009). The cast is fantastic, and I’ve had a blast at the shows I’ve seen so far! WELCOME BACK TO DC, JERSY BOYS!
