More East Meets West SF Jersey Boys Photo Coverage!

September 2nd, 2007

A couple of weeks ago, we posted JBB Fantastic Fan Mike Magbaleta’s recap of his family meeting JBB Fantastic Fan Irene Eizen and her family in San Francisco to see Jersey Boys! Here’s more fabulous photo coverage of Irene Eizen and her daughter and granddaughter Jennifer and Samantha Roberts at the stage door with the SF/Chicago Jersey Boys cast members!


  1. Great slide show, guys. Sammy is certainly growing up right before our eyes, huh?

    The cast looks so happy to be in your company too, Irene, Jen, and Sammy. I do have one question, though–where is Jarrod off to in that army jacket with the backpack in mid-summer? He’s not off to visit your ‘old neighborhood’ in Philly, is he, Irene? Still find it amusing you traveled 3000 miles to visit someone who lives two blocks away—similar to driving through a turnpike and a landfill to get to a stadium and cheer for a team from New York!!

    Nice pic of my pal Craig Laurie too. But of course, Sammy in the picture makes all in her company more photogenic!

  3. Susie,

    Thanks so much for posting these additional pictures. IT was such a fabulous night and a great experience.

    Yes, Howard, I traveled three thousand miles to see someone from the old neightborhood who likved two blocks away. Before I read the rest of your comment, Howard, I was thinking the same thing – driving through the turnpike next to a landfill to cheer for the other side. THIS trip was well worth it!

  5. Excellent photos Irene! Thanks for the great experience that we’ll cherish forever! I was wondering when we all were going to see the pics. What a treat! Since we were on the other side of the stage door where the sidewalk was, we knew you were chatting with Jarrod since you are neighbors and wanted so much to meet him!

    I’m still getting chills (not due to SF having the coldest Summers around…..) from reliving that evening through the Blog and having both Jarrod and Craig acknowledge us during the performance! We had such a great time with you that now we have to meet back East or once more out West when Vegas starts up at the Palazzo! That way, we can all meet Susie and Dale in their hometown.

    I also hope that some of the other fans across the US may meet in this manner and share those Jersey Boys experiences with us all!

    Also, special thanks (hundreds of times over) to Howard Tucker, Mr. Lifesaver, for his part with arranging that “sitdown” with Irene & family! I received the playbill in mint condition and I hope that you received yours the same way! That was an unusual one from LA, but a seriously great addition to my collection!

  6. Mike,

    I have an idea about when west can come to the east. Can you e-mail me?

    Yes, Howard is the BEST! IE
