Review Roundup: Jersey Boys Natl Tour Is Terrific in Toronto!

December 31st, 2014

Below are a couple excerpts of JERSEY BOYS national tour reviews in Toronto. The production will be playing at the Ed Mirvish Theatre thourgh 1/4/15:

Martin Morrow, The musical numbers are smashing, however, and Sergio Trujillo’s witty, walk-like-a-man choreography in particular is as delightful as ever.. but when Frankie and the boys get to doing their thing, it’s a gas, baby.

Richard Ouzounian, Nicolas Dromard has a fine time with Tommy DeVito, the bad boy with a love for gambling and a dislike of the truth. Dromard enjoys the part more than anyone I’ve ever seen, which is great, because it keeps the character from being dislikable despite his sociopathic selfish streak.

Drew Seeley is also pretty terrific as Bob Gaudio, the quiet geek with the magic gift for melody. Seeley begins by being about as charmingly clueless as a teenage prodigy could be, but grows into maturity and emerges as the smartest, sanest and probably most talented of the whole group.

And as the self-styled “Ringo” of this Garden State version of the Beatles, Keith Hines brings a fine, deadpan humour to Nick Massi, the bass player who redefines what it means to be strong and silent.
