Beggin’ You to See Jersey Boys in London

Jersey Boys – Prince Edward Theatre, London

Thousands of people visit London every year and take in a theatre show, but what’s worth seeing? In the heart of London’s theatre land there are literally dozens of theatres within a few hundred metres of each other showing a whole host of shows. Many opted for Jersey Boys, a show based on the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

Although the Burton Mail critic is not from the era of The Four Seasons and probably couldn’t tell you the title of any of their tracks until he saw Jersey Boys, he became a fan thanks to the clever and gripping story, the fabulous music, and the superb cast. Here’s a preview:

It’s true that the writers of the show Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice came up against this problem time and time again with the four key players Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and the late Nick Massi all having differing accounts of key events in the group’s history.

This is cleverly overcome by more than one version of events being played out at the same time and with some of the onstage arguments showing that everything was not always plain sailing. The story is truly gripping with the music playing a key role. To see the band struggle as they are forced to sing backing vocals to their manager’s (Bob Crewe) artists before a hastily put together arrangement of Sherry was sung down the telephone to kick-start what was to become a super-group.
