Jersey Boys Receives Four Stars in Sacramento!

September 10th, 2007

Sacramento Bee’s Theater Critic Marcus Crowder states that the electrifying new Broadway Sacramento presentation of Jersey Boys succeeds on many levels – much like the popular band whose story it tells. Just as the best musical groups are more than the sum of their individual parts, the production fuses numerous elements into a resoundingly cohesive whole, elevating several genres in the process. It’s dramatic biography, cultural history and jukebox musical wrapped in an entertaining package of contemporary stagecraft and old-fashioned storytelling.The production, directed by Des McAnuff, lifts popular entertainment to a level of art with its breathless pace while conductor Andrew Miller leads the exquisite band through snappy charts.

  1. Thanks for posting a link to the review. Although the reviewer switched the narration order between Nick and Frankie.

  2. I could have given The Sacramento Bee the review ahead of time. The show never disappoints it is always a hit. It has great writing, great music, great actors and great direction, how could you lose. I saw the show on opening night and WOW it was great. I have seen the show in New York 4 times and seeing again in my hometown was awesome. Christopher Kale Jones is great as “Frankie”. The guys all did a great job. Everyone should see this show, it is so uplifting and makes you feel good when you leave the show. If you go I guarantee you will not be disappointed, on the contrary I guarantee will be be singing and dancing all the way out. Do yourselves a favor and whenever Jersey Boys comes to your town make an effort to see it.

  3. The show was fantastic. My son who hates musicals (he is 17 – hates lots of things) LOVED it! My whole family had a wonderful night – the cast was splendid especially the three principal Seasons.
