  1. I heard a deafening roar of applause at eight o’clock tonight all the way here on the east coast of Virginia. I think the noise came from 52nd Street in NYC when the Jersey Boys finally stepped onstage again!

  3. My husband and I just got home from the Jersey Boy experience on the first night back from the strike -how lucky and grateful we felt. We LOVED the show -we laughed and cried. We came back to Jersey with a wonderful story in our hearts of love,loyalty,friendship and heartbreak. And a reminder of what a great state NJ is to live. Thank you to the cast for all their hardwork and dedication. Thanks to all the stagehands for everything they do and no one even realizes -glad you came back in time for us to see your incredible show!

  5. I just got back from seeing Jersey Boys on Wednsday. Cory Grant ways amazing! He made me want to jump up onstage with him. He played the role of Frankie so well, I could have sworn it was really him. The quality of his falsetto is the most amazing I have heard. Wonderful, wonderful job Cory!!!!!!!
