"Discover how four New Jersey boys from the wrong side of the tracks invented their own unique sound, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and sold 100 million records worldwide. With spectacular performances of all their hits, JERSEY BOYS is the true life story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons"
When i watch the Royal Variety performance each year, the highlight for me is always the musical theatre performers. So, flash back to 2008 and on come the Jersey Boys. I was fazed by my parents telling me that they wanted to see it and instantly was put off. But when the London cast sung a medley of 'Sherry/Big Girls dont cry/Walk like a man/Who loves you' i was intruiged. Five months later i find myself sat in the Prince Edwards theatre in London watching the show.
The show is brilliant. The primary cast Ryan Molloy (Frankie Valli) Glenn Carter (Tommy DiVito) Stephen Ashfield (Bob Gaudio) and Phillip Bulcock (Nick Massey) are outstanding. The high lights: "Sherry", "Oh What a Night", "Cant take my eyes off you", "Fallen Angel" and "Who loves you?". The stage set isn't overglamorous but it does the job and the show consists of a lot of songs so it's actionpacked. I was suprised at how brilliant it was and im going to see it again. i would urge everyone to go see this.
It's also worth noting that those wanting to see the show can get front row seats for £20 via the website. sometimes requires you to google the offer. decent seats, maybe a bit too close for comfort but v.good view.
Summary: "four guys under a street lamp singing somebody elses latest song"
