Reviewer Revisits Jersey Boys on Broadway

February 2nd, 2010

Sarina Singh, reporter for TheTicker.com, Baruch College’s newspaper, states that it’s easy to know that you have witnessed a spectacular production when your feelings at the end of the show exceed your expectations. This seems to sum up the mind-set of most of the audiences who see Jersey Boys on Broadway. This documentary-style musical based on the lives of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons could have been a cheesy and unrealistic production. However, the audience learns, hates, and ultimately falls in love with the characters, all while sitting on the edge of their seats as the plot thickens.

The acting choreography, songs and stage settings were all done unexpectedly well, making this musical a wonderful experience. Jersey Boys has been successful on Broadway for so long because its actors fully immerse themselves in the lives of this famous quartet, singing the songs as if they were their own, feeling their happiness, heartache and success as if it were happening on stage at that very moment, rather than 50 years ago in New Jersey.
