Jersey Boys Thrills Toronto!

August 27th, 2008

Critics and crowds are both giving high praise for Jersey Boys in Toronto! In fact, the show has now been extended through November 9, 2008! Below are excerpts from two of the latest reviews on the big Toronto hit!

Mark Andrew Lawrence, Jersey Boys is thrilling high-energy entertainment. According to Lawrence, at first glance it may seem to be just another “jukebox” show, but JB is a show that balances dazzle with drama.

R. Kelly Nestruck, The Tony-winning Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, now a worldwide phenomenon, hits all the right notes for success. According to Nestruck, the most enthusiastic performance of the night comes from the audience playing … the audience. After certain Four Seasons “performances” – their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, for instance – the house lights come up slightly, and every time the audience absolutely erupted. The reviewer notes that he has rarely seen such a near-nuclear reaction from a crowd.
