Jersey Boys National Tour Delivers!

March 29th, 2008

More great reviews for JB in Minneapolis!
From The story – which is pretty typical showbiz – does a better job than most jukebox musicals of connecting the dots, and the characters remain wonderfully down to earth throughout the fame and heartbreak. While it does play a bit loose with reality (Bob Crewe is presented mainly as a supremely foppish producer, while he actually co-wrote the band’s hits and is credited as the show’s lyricist), Jersey Boys makes up for this in charm. The Seasons – led by angel-voiced Christopher Kale Jones – harmonize beautifully, and it’s a joy to listen to the group’s parade of hits, from “Walk Like a Man” to “December 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” to “Working My Way Back to You.”

  1. Any chance of this great musical being made into a movie any time soon?
