Jersey Boys Natl Tour Marvelous at Morrison Center in Boise!

December 5th, 2014

JB national tour is rocking the audience’s (and critic’s) world in Boise. Check out an excerpt of Dana Oland’s review in the Idaho Statesman:

Dromard plays the delightfully charming “Goodfellas”-esque guitarist and group founder Tommy DeVito, who in the end torpedoes the group’s success. Hines is striking and sweetly funny as bass player and singer Nick Massi. Seeley is boyishly energetic as keyboardist and songwriter Bob Gaudio, and Milanes is sincere and sympathetic as lead singer Valli.

Supported by an excellent ensemble (Barry Anderson as producer Bob Crewe, especially), dancers, singers and a tight group of backstage musicians, these Jersey Boys dance and sing as well – if not better – than the original four. Milanes reaches Valli’s three-octave range with a cleaner, clearer tone.

  1. It isn’t just about the 3-octave range, or the clean, clear tone of Milanes’ voice. It’s about Frankie Valli’s distinctive and remarkable voice. I was 12 when “Sherry” came out and I had ALL of their records. One problem in listening to the original music is the recording technology of the time. It can’t compare to todays’s digital recordings. So you don’t get the same quality. I saw FV & 4 Seasons in 1980 in concert, and they were AMAZING! Their sound and Frankie’s voice was better than I’d ever heard it before or since. I saw Jersey Boys in Las Vegas twice and I’m seeing it in Denver next week. The entire cast is INCREDIBLY talented. It’s Frankie’s voice that I love the best!
