Jersey Boys Wows! West End!!

March 18th, 2008

Telegraph’s Charles Spencer says that Jersey Boys is a blue-collar, meat-and-potatoes, straight-up-no-chaser kind of show, and he means that as a compliment.

The Four Seasons were always a group who appealed primarily to a blue-collar audience – “the factory workers and the truck drivers, the guy flipping burgers, and the pretty girl with rings under her eyes in the diner” as the script evocatively puts it.

And the story is fascinatingly told through the eyes of each of the original band members, so that the audience gets a range of viewpoints.

Jersey Boys superbly captures the thrills and tensions of four testosterone-charged young men discovering fame and fortune after years of dogged failure.
