As one of the most successful jukebox musicals of all-time, Jersey Boys tells the story of one of the most popular groups in music history.
Tommy DeVito (Christian Hoff), Bob Gaudio (Daniel Reichard), Nick Massi (J. Robert Spencer) and Frankie Valli (John Lloyd Young) made up Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Their start is just as interesting as their tumultuous years together. While times were tough, music was still at the heart of it all.
Finding someone with a voice that could reach the heights that Valli’s could is not an easy task, but Young surpasses expectations. Many of the band’s top hits make it into this show, which will have people in the audience singing along – whether you want them to or not. The drama is gripping as well.
Final say: Don’t take your eyes off them. ★★★★☆
