Another great review in San Francisco for the JERSEY BOYS national tour! This one is from SFAppeal.com:
That said, [Nick Cosgrove] he sells the damn thing. They all do. All four of the band members narrate parts of the story, and my personal fave was when the baritone bass-player Nick Massi finally gets his say. He’s played by Michael Lomenda, and his performance is definitely the show’s comedic highlight.
I’m not a huge fan of musicals, but ultimately, despite some needlessly maudlin moments, Jersey Boys won me over. But a warning to those who think it might be a good choice for a family night at the theater: this is a story about Italian guys from New Jersey. Joe Pesci is a character in it. If you think, because this is a musical, the language is going to be tame, you’re out of your fucking mind.
