You have until Sunday, October 16 to check out the JERSEY BOYS national tour company in Boston! Check out sneak peeks of two fabulous reviews below:
TheTech.com: As a nod to the name of the band, the musical is segmented into four seasons, each narrated by a different member of the band talking directly to the audience. During “Spring,” we’re introduced to Bob Gaudio (Cory Jeacoma), a young songwriter who joins to give their music a fresh makeover and provide backup vocals and keyboard. Jeacoma’s fluid voice provides a gorgeous balance to the uniquely high-pitched voice of De Jesus’s character. Soon after Jeacoma’s character is introduced, the band catapults into one of the highest points of their career. One after another, we hear their top hits, “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” and “Walk Like a Man,” and the energy in the audience quickly rises. We’re cheering them on from our seats, rooting for them to keep their fame growing.
Emertainmentmonthly.com: The final number of the show is a compilation of songs, farewell monologues from the members of the group, and a reunion of the original Four Seasons. Everything about the end of Jersey Boys fills the audience with the warmth and enthusiasm only theater can provide. As each character tells what became of him, the audience continues to yearn for their story, their music, and their lives as a whole. All in all, Jersey Boys is a feel-good, passionate, and astounding piece of theater.
