Denver can’t get enough of the Boys from Jersey! Check out the latest reviews!

From MK, Out Front Colorado: This show is an absolute joy – and who doesn’t need some joy around the holidays! If you love the Four Seasons, you will be thrilled. If you even like them, you will be delighted. If you don’t know who they are, you will leave wanting all their albums. The energy, excitement, and talent on this stage is truly unbelievable. Joseph Leo Bwarie, who played Frankie Valli on press night and will continue the role in most of the shows, has a voice like no other. His Frankie Valli-falsetto is flawless, and he literally blew the audience away when he sang “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” This show is worth seeing at least twice for the music alone.

From Bob Bows, Finally, here’s a musical review with a compelling storyline. Whether or not, back in the day, you were a fan of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the context provided in Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice’s book makes this a winner. Joseph Leo Bwarie does an admirable job with Frankie’s trademark falsetto and silky tenor. There’s plenty of drama in the group’s ups and down with Erik Bates, Josh Franklin and Steve Gouveia drawing distinctive portraits of Tommy, Bob, and Nick. Jonathan Hadley as Bob Crewe (the group’s manager and lyricist) adds comedic flavor. The ensemble is solid in all respects and dance up a storm.
