Jersey Boys Fabulous Fox Theatre-GA Review

From May 22 to June 10, 2012, Jersey Boys playing at Fabulous Fox Theatre-GA in Atlanta GA and Wendell Brock reviewed the musical. Check out a sneak peek of the review:

There’s a moment in “Jersey Boys” when Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons must decide whether to bail out bad-boy gambler Tommy DeVito or throw him overboard to the loan sharks.

In a smoky boardroom, Valli gets up from the table and declares his intentions to walk like a man. They’ll pay off DeVito’s debt and behave like a family.

At this moment, it may occur to you that “Jersey Boys” is more than just a seamlessly crafted jukebox musical describing the public acclaim and behind-the-scenes struggles of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: It is also a tale of honor and loyalty to rival Mario Puzo (“The Godfather”) and Shakespeare (“The Merchant of Venice”).

And I’m happy to report that the touring production at the Fox Theatre through June 10 is the slickest, best-looking and most dramatically resonant telling of the expletive-spewing 2006 Tony Award winner for best new musical that I have seen. As the diminutive lead singer with the voice of an angel, the troubled personal life and the heart of gold, Brad Weinstock is simply electric. His performance is as good as you will see on any stage, anywhere.

Though Valli’s flaws were considerable, DeVito’s were apparently even more troubling, and Colby Foytik plays the stock villain with a mixture of snarl and charisma. The handsome Jason Kappus portrays Bob Gaudio, the musical brains of the group, as fresh-faced and likeable, while Brandon Andrus exudes plenty of masculine energy as bass singer Nick Massi, the quiet soldierly one who can only endure so much. As “Fifth Season” Bob Crewe, the group’s lyricist and frequent producer, Barry Anderson is a delightfully flamboyant figure who recalls Hugh Jackman playing Peter Allen in “The Boy from Oz.”
