Jersey Boys Brilliant in Boston!

August 6th, 2009

Jersey Boys LogoIn her Eagle-Tribune review, Rosemary Ford gives JERSEY BOYS in Boston 4 out of 4 stars!

As a reviewer, Ford states that she has seen some pretty tough crowds come out for Boston theater. Standing ovations don’t come with every show, and she has never heard audience members heap on praise while leaving a crowded theater.

Both of these things happened the night she saw “Jersey Boys,” and she notes that each was well deserved for this Tony winner.

In the end, “Jersey Boys” leaves the audience with a sense of the impact they made on music and American culture. It’s a moving journey, for those who were there to see and for those who discovered the music generations later.

The four actors who play the Seasons — Matt Bailey, Joseph Leo Bwarie, Josh Franklin and Steve Gouveia — believably personify their characters who came from a tough neighborhood, find stardom in music, yet can’t leave that neighborhood behind.

What’s truly stunning about these four is how much they sound like the Four Seasons. The harmonies sound so realistic, close your eyes, you’re at a Four Seasons concert.
