Jersey Boys ROCKS on Return in Columbus!

September 22nd, 2013

Abigail Hofrichter of The Lantern definitely enjoyed JB at the Ohio Theatre in Columbus! Check out a preview of her review:

Things pick up toward the second half of act one with “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man” and “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” all back to back. Suddenly, I was transported from a theater to a concert venue. The lights grew brighter and the energy soared.

There is no denying “Jersey Boys” is fun, but overall, it’s the real story of The Four Seasons that makes this musical the Tony-award winning hit it is. Wednesday night was my second viewing since 2011 in an off-Broadway production in New York, and I found myself less seduced by the hit songs and glitz of the 1960s, but instead captivated by the workings of friendship, loyalty and personal growth within the group.

Your grandparents might love these songs, but this is not your grandparents’ musical. Between the superstar story and the authentic Jersey language, “Jersey Boys” is a refreshing dramatized Broadway production. I may have a soft spot for the Garden State, but this show remains at the top of my list.
