Jersey Boys Rave Reviews in Buffalo

Category: Uncategorized — Tags: – admin @ 2:14 am

Jersey Boys, the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical, received rave reviews in Buffalo at the Shea Performing Arts Center, where it opened Friday, April 23 (performances began April 21) and will play through Sunday, May 9. From Buffalo, Jersey Boys will play Providence, RI’s Providence Performing Arts Center Wednesday, May 12 through Sunday, June 6.

Buffalo News’ Colin Dabkowski writes “Immaculately produced, directed and performed…Like so many pieces of film, theater and television before it, Jersey Boys derives much of its wide and growing appeal from the quintessential American fascination with the tragedy of celebrity, success and inevitable corruption. In the case of The Four Seasons, we learn, the corruption was there in the first place, which makes their success that much more improbable and fascinating. It should come as no surprise that “Jersey Boys” is produced with a mechanized degree of precision…No surprise either that the music is irresistible.”

Buffalo Rising’s Kristen Becker writes “The four actors in the lead roles nailed the rock show feel with every number. All thirty-three. That’s right, thirty three musical numbers, and a show that spans forty some odd years. The only way to put that much into a show and explore that many years without losing your audience is through meticulous execution…The entire cast should be commended for the teamwork displayed onstage. It’s not as easy as they made it look. Bravo to the cast, the writers and the crew for a remarkable show. If I believed in rating systems, it would be four out of Four Seasons (Sorry, the “star” rating system was taken).”
