Broadway Hit Musical Jersey Boys at Proctors Theatre – Review

Jersey Boys musical is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. YNN Staff recently caught up with the current tour at Proctors Theater in Schenectady.

“We’ve been on the road together now for three months and it’s just a solid company of people on and off the stage. That’s what makes it great,” said Colby Fotik, who plays Tommy DeVito.

This jukebox musical is certainly a feast for the eyes and ears. There are more than 400 conventual lighting units and a full sound system including 120 speakers. It’s just as much production backstage as it is on.

“The band, the amazing wardrobe department, the dressers that keep us doing quick changes, sometimes within 15 seconds, you know, the crew, lights, sound, everyone…it’s a huge effort behind the scenes to hopefully make us look as good as we’d like to think we look,” said Brad Weinstock, who is cast as Frankie Valli.

The story follows the forming, rise, and eventual break-up of the Four Seasons. Each act was actually separated into four seasons. And since this is based on a real band, there was a source of material to draw from.

“The first week was just basically the four of us in a room learning how to become this band, our version of this band,” said Jason Kappus, who plays Bob Gaudio.

And when portraying Frankie Valli, you certainly need a falsetto voice. It could come from natural talent, rehearsals, or something called “Frankie Camp.”

Cast members said Frankie Valli himself made an appearance during rehearsal one day.

“That was kind of a moment but he was really gracious and sweet, came around shook everyone’s hand, obviously was very much behind the show and excited about what we are doing,” said Weinstock. So if you’re into the nostalgic sounds of “Rag Doll” and “Walk Like a Man,”.

Jersey Boys will be doing their singing and storytelling at Proctors Theatre through March 18, 2012. Get $10 OFF on Jersey Boys Schenectady NY Tickets Orders over $350! Use Code #SpringSavings at Checkout.
