Jersey Boys Musical Tour at Fisher Theatre – Review

The Jersey Boys Musical first national tour currently performing at Fisher Theatre through January 6, 2013. Jenn McKee reviewed the musical at PrideSource.com. Here is the review:

The show tells the story of the 1960s pop sensation Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, consisting of: band founder and leader Tommy DeVito (John Gardiner), who has run-ins with the law and runs up gambling debts; routine-obsessed bass Nick Massi (Michael Lomenda); talented young songwriter Bobby Gaudio (Miles Jacoby); and the young guy with the angelic, high voice that made everyone sit up and take notice, Frankie Valli (Nick Cosgrove).

What you’ll notice within minutes of “Jersey Boys” is what capable hands you’re in, in terms of the storytelling. Book writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice masterfully cherry pick salient details from the group’s biography, and not a word or moment is wasted; meanwhile, director Des McAnuff keeps the pace snappy without ever losing clarity, so that even though we’re quickly hopping to different locales in the opening moments while absorbing the necessary exposition, the energy stays high, and the audience stays engaged.

It doesn’t hurt either, of course, that the cast is uniformly outstanding.

Lomenda is hilarious as quirky Nick; Gardiner makes Tommy self-assured and witty, but also low-burn menacing; Jacoby’s Bobby is unabashedly candid, aware of his strengths and weaknesses, and wise beyond his years; and Cosgrove is a knockout, with vocals that soar.

Klara Zieglerova designed “Jersey Boys” steel-girded set, which features a raised bridge across the stage that provides a second level for the play’s action. Jess Goldstein’s costume design helps The Four Seasons come to life more fully on stage, while also, with other characters, hinting at the passage of time. Michael Clark’s Roy Lichtenstein-inspired projections sometimes help establish setting, sometimes just echo the action; and Howell Binkley’s lighting design keeps the audience’s eye where it needs to be as the fast-paced tale unfolds. Finally, Sergio Trujillo’s choreography perfectly captures The Four Seasons’ crisp, synchronized dance moves; it’s a joy to watch.

Interestingly, “Jersey Boys,” in some ways, shouldn’t work as well as it does. When biographical adaptations try to focus on a broad range of time (as “Jersey Boys” does) instead of a specific, pivotal moment, they often feel shapeless, baggy and unsatisfying. And as a rule, I’m not a big fan of the juke box musical – the shows often feel painfully labored and self-conscious. But Brickman and Elice have cracked the code by letting each of the band members tell their side of the story, and incorporating The Four Seasons’ ear-candy music at perfect, and thematically relevant, intervals.

Andrea Daniel previewed the musical at DetroitNews.com. Here is the story:

Cosgrove, who joined the production in 2011, says he feels as if he’s been training for the role for a large part of his life.

“There weren’t shows like TMZ, and all the celebrity shows back then like we have now,” says Nick Cosgrove, who plays Valli in the “Jersey Boys” production. “But with this play, you see the highs and lows that this group went through. And you see it wasn’t an overnight sensation. You see the struggles and successes.”

The actor/singer says his character doesn’t leave the stage for nearly two hours during the show, and he sings 27 songs.

“It’s like running a marathon,” he says.

Joining Cosgrove as the three members of the Four Seasons are John Gardiner as Tommy DeVito, Miles Jacoby as Bob Gaudio and Michael Lomenda as Nick Massi. While the three, plus Cosgrove, didn’t work together prior to the production, Cosgrove says the ability to gel in their roles is part of the magic of live theater.

“In the show, when the character Bob joins the group, he plays the song ‘Cry for Me’ at the piano. They form their sound for the first time with that song. So it’s like we (actors) get to find each other every night, and each performance breathes new life into the show,” Cosgrove says.

He calls “Jersey Boys” a behind-the-scenes experience.

“It’s a story about family, and anyone can connect to that. And you get a rock concert all night long.”

Jersey Boys at Orpheum Theatre TN – Musical Review

Jersey Boys Musical is currently performing at Orpheum Theatre TN through December 16, 2012. Jon W. Sparks reviewed the musical at CommercialAppeal.com. Here is the review:

“Jersey Boys” is making a return engagement to the Orpheum, bringing the memorable tunes of The Four Seasons and enough sharp writing and storytelling to make the production more than a collection of hits.

Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice wrote the book, and their approach and style make all the difference. They found the story of the rise, peak and breakup of the group to be compelling and they gave it a Rashomon-like narrative, with each of the four members telling their own version of the tale.

The result is a story arc with changing perceptions, but with plenty of the songs that to this day have that pure pop appeal; the group has sold 175 million records, after all. For a production with so many songs, however, there is a lot of dialogue, and it is as catchy as the tunes.

The performers are fine, conveying plenty of energy and wit. The arrangements are carefully re-created from the original and not “Broadwayed up,” as Elice puts it, so what you hear is what you heard on the radio back in the day. The singing reminds us of the groups’ vocals but doesn’t quite replicate them, and sometimes the punch is missing.

And while the music is pleasantly pop and OK for any ears, be advised that the language used by those boys from New Jersey gets pretty rough. A warning in the lobby advises that “Flashing strobe lights, loud gunfire and authentic, profane, Jersey vocabulary are special effects used in this production …”
