Third Time’s a Charm for Jersey Boys in San Francisco!

Jersey Boys SF Holiday Cast
The new cast of Jersey Boys at San Francisco’s Curran Theatre includes, from left, Jeff Leibow as Nick Massi, Rick Faugno as Frankie Valli, Andrew Rannells as Bob Gaudio and Bryan McElroy as Tommy DeVito. Photo by Joan Marcus’s theater critic Chad Jones notes that the third time is definitely a charm for San Francisco and Jersey Boys.

According to Jones, this is the third cast SF has seen here, and though they’ve only been performing for little more than a week, they’re in great shape. Word is that these are the Boys — or some of them anyway — who will be going to Vegas to open the specially tailored theater at the new Palazzo resort.

Friday’s performance marked the fifth time Jones has seen Jersey Boys, and honestly, he thought this might be the time when he enjoyed it less or maybe saw the man behind the curtain a little more. But no, he got caught up in the whole thing and once again found himself wishing the “December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)” high-energy encore would just keep going and going and going — like Jersey Boys itself.

  1. Buz and I will be in San Francisco for another “East meets West” Jersey Boys get together. We are then all going to see the show! Can’t wait.
