Critics Praise Jersey Boys in Dallas!

July 26th, 2008

Following a couple of previews, Jersey Boys opened in Dallas last night at the Fair Park Music Hall and critics are raving about the 2006 Best Musical Tony Award winner!

Lawson Taitte in The Dallas Morning News: Talk about a buildup: We are two-thirds of the way through the first act of Jersey Boys before the Four Seasons come together for their first big hit. When “Sherry” finally does erupt, it’s as if a skyscraper-sized bottle of champagne exploded…Director Des McAnuff wove all the elements of Jersey Boys into a swirling, precisely choreographed showpiece that keeps on gaining momentum. Entertainment doesn’t get any slicker – or more accomplished.

Mark Lowry in the Star-Telegram.com: In the musical Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, performances of that group’s biggest hits — “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Sherry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” — are the biggest crowd-pleasers. But what makes this show, the 2006 Best Musical Tony winner that opened in Dallas on Friday, really take off are the other songs. It makes for one remarkably well-put-together bio-musical.

I would probuly never have scene a Broadway show had I not been a fan of Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons.I was very impressed with the talent of the actors.This Jersey Boy group sang all the song very well.Being a fan of The Four Seasons since 1962 till now I would just like to say the memory of The Jersey Boys Broadway show will for ever stay with me. Congratulations for giving Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons the recognition that ought be due them.GOD BLESS.
