Jersey Boys At National Theatre till Jan 07, 2012

The North American national touring company of Jersey Boys rolled into town on Wednesday of last week. Jersey Boys will be performing at National Theatre – DC for almost 8 weeks through Jan 07, 2012.

This Broadway hit, “The Story of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons,” the musical tells a tale that transcends show business gossip to become a close character study of four talented but very different blue-collar guys from New Jersey — who just happen to have sung some of the best close-harmony rock/pop tunes of the late 1950s, the 1960s and into the 1970s.

The real reason to see this production is the music. The songs that were able to drive excitable teenagers to the dance floor nearly 50 years ago, like “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got),” and “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” still possess a strange kind of power with their snappy beats and harmonized hooks, particularly when performed with such energy and polish—there’s a good chance you’ll need to have the tunes surgically removed from your head in the weeks following the show. It’s no wonder the National Theatre brought this musical back for an encore.

Jersey Boys Musical performances continued at National Theatre – DC through Jan 07, 2012 before it moves to Fort Lauderdale, FL performances starting from January 11, 2012. Buy Jersey Boys Washington DC Tickets Online, Use Code AFF$10 to Get $10 OFF on Orders over $350!
