PostHeaderIcon Jersey Boys London Extends Booking Period to 8 April 2012

Jersey Boys London Production has increased its booking period by 12 months – tickets are now on sale to 8 April 2012.

Jersey Boys opened at the Prince Edward Theatre 18 Mar 2008, following previews from 28 Feb 2008 to reasonable notices from the popular press: THE EVENING STANDARD says, “Slickly animated production.” THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “It has a quality you rarely find in musicals – gritty honesty – as well as the best collection of pop hits since Mamma Mia!” THE GUARDIAN says, “A pleasant, forgettable night out; no more, no less.”

Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe.

The London production is staged by the entire original Broadway creative team: Directed by Des McAnuff , designed by Klara Zieglerova, lighting by Howell Binkley, choreography by Sergio Trujillo, costumes by Jess Goldstein, sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy and projections design by Michael Clark. The orchestrations are by Steve Orich and the music direction and vocal arrangements by Ron Melrose.

The story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons – Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi – and how this group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American and International pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were thirty. Their songs include ‘Sherry’, ‘Walk Like A Man’, ‘December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)’, ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’, ‘My Eyes Adored You’, ‘Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got)’.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, All the Jersey Boys Fans

Even if you are a big music fan, all you might know about The Four Seasons is that Frankie Valli was their lead singer and they had a slew of hits many years ago like “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man,” to name a few.

But, if you see “Jersey Boys,” the electrifying Tony Award-winning musical based on the group’s bumpy ride to the top, you might start thinking you witnessed every hit and heartbreak.

PostHeaderIcon Jersey Boys Boston Reviews – Playing Through Jan 30, 2011

Jersey Boys returned to Boston and received rave reviews once again at the Colonial Theatre, where it opened Friday, December 17 (performances began Thursday, December 16) and will play through Sunday, January 30, 2011.

    Jersey Boys Reviews:

The Boston Herald: Lauren Beckham Falcone writes “The boys are back in Boston – bringing the Tony- and Grammy-Award-winning musical to the Colonial Theatre – and audiences to their feet. JERSEY BOYS shines, shimmies and sizzles on the stage. The foursome playing the foursome is seamless, a pitch-perfect quartet of impressive pipes and emotional storytelling.”

Boston Globe: Don Aucoin writes “Joseph Leo Bwarie’s performance as Frankie Valli goes beyond mere mimicry. The Emerson College grad doesn’t simply channel Valli; he inscribes the role with a breath-catching artistry of his own as he soars, without seeming effort, into the upper reaches of the human voice.”

Cape Cod Times: Gwenn Friss writes “Joseph Leo Bwarie, Quinn VanAntwerp, Steve Gouveia and Matt Bailey are extraordinary. The singing is terrific and the show’s 10-piece band is perfect.”

The Boston Channel: says “Jersey and Boston have a lot in common … proud, territorial, a wee bit arrogant and certainly not the least bit intimidated by the big cheeses in the Big Apple. Broadway may have launched Jersey Boys, but when it swings into the Hub, it’s ours! It’s built just like the songs it celebrates … catchy, clever, and heartfelt. Joseph Leo Bwarie is a unique talent portraying a unique talent. Bwarie’s singing is jawdroppingly good. Matt Bailey as Four Seasons bad boy Tommy DeVito is pitch perfect as the loud mouth schemer who knows Frankie is his ticket out of the neighborhood. Quinn VanAntwerp as Bob Gaudio, tall, rosy cheeked, and brimming with intelligence, he’s a force to be reckoned with on his own terms.”

From Boston, Jersey Boys will play Baltimore’s Hippodrome Performing Arts Center Wednesday, February 02 to February 27, 2011.

Jarrod Spector in Jersey Boys Broadway

Jarrod Spector in Jersey Boys Broadway asked readers to vote on which actor to have played a member of the Four Seasons is their favorite. The votes are in, and readers just can’t take their eyes off of Jarrod Spector, who landed in the top spot with 38%. Spector first played Four Seasons frontman Frankie Valli in the Chicago production of Jersey Boys before taking over the role on Broadway in 2008. He is still wowing audiences nightly at the August Wilson Theatre.

Following in second place is the show’s original Frankie Valli, John Lloyd Young. The actor, who won a Tony Award for his performance in 2006, earned 17% of votes. Third place went to another original cast member, J. Robert Spencer, with 12% of votes. Spencer played Nick Massi and later went on to score a Tony nomination for his performance as Dan Goodman in Next to Normal.

Fourth place resulted in a tie between original cast member Christian Hoff, who also picked up a 2006 Tony Award for his portrayal of hot-headed Tommy DeVito, and recent cast member Sebastian Arcelus. Both actors earned 8% of votes. Arcelus first joined Jersey Boys in 2008 as the band’s singer/songwriter Bob Gaudio and returned in 2009. He departed the production earlier this fall and can now be seen as the title character in the new holiday musical Elf.

PostHeaderIcon Jersey Boys star returns to Boston for repeat performance

Jersey Boys visiting Boston, MA from December 16, 2010 and playing through January 30, 2011.

Joseph Leo Bwarie will star in “Jersey Boys, The story of Frankie Valli &The Four Seasons” at the Colonial Theatre, 106 Boylston St., Boston, Dec. 16-Jan. 30.

Joseph Leo Bwarie will star in “Jersey Boys at the Colonial Theatre, 106 Boylston St., Boston, December 16, 2010 to January 30, 2011

Joseph Leo Bwarie, who has been playing Frankie Valli in the national tour of the musical mega-hit “Jersey Boys” since 2007, returning to Boston at the Colonial Theatre in Boston.

“My contract was to end in Philadelphia on Dec. 12, but I extended because I said there was no way anyone else was going to play Frankie Valli in Boston. This will be the tour’s first ever repeat city in four years on the road which is momentous. We finally get to use ‘Working our Way Back to You’ as our advertising slogan,” explained Bwarie, a 1999 graduate of Emerson College, last week by telephone. “I grew up in southern California, but my family on both my Mom’s and Dad’s sides are all from greater Boston – from Westford, to Arlington, Belmont, Brookline, and Braintree. I have family all over Massachusetts. When ‘Jersey Boys’ played Boston last summer, we did one show where the entire Shubert mezzanine was filled with just my family members.”

“As a singer, I’m very honored to be compared to Frankie Valli. To me, the voice people hear in the show is just me, Joe Bwarie. This is just what I sound like. I had always been cast to sing the high parts, but I had never performed any of this music before I got this role and no one had ever told me I sounded like Frankie Valli. If I can come close to what he sounds like then that, of course, is the goal.”

Bwarie hasn’t made up his mind yet whether or not this Boston engagement will be his last with “Jersey Boys,” but he does know he’d like to see his own name on the marquee one day in the future.
