untitledJersey Boys: The Tale of the Four Seasons.

Introduction

Written by Rick Elice and Marshall Brickman, Jersey Boys is a documentary style musical based on the famous rock and roll band the four seasons (also known as Frankie Valli and the four seasons). The show having debuted in 2005 has enjoyed massive popularity among theatergoers and has been in major theaters all over the world.

Story

Jersey Boys is the story of the famous rock and roll group, the four seasons. The band comprised of Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi, Bob Gaudio and Frankie Valli. The band produced hits such as “walk like a man”, “Sherry” and “big girls don’t cry”.

The show is comprised of four acts, one each from the perspective of one band member. The story is somewhat similar to many famous rock bands. The band gets together, faces adverse circumstances, and conquers all through music while gaining fame and fortune. However, the story does not end there. The intense touring, combined with all the partying that comes with the rock star lifestyle, starts to take its toll on the personal lives of the band members.

As a result, Frankie eventually gets divorced, Tommy ends up indebted to the wrong crowd and the band starts to deteriorate from within. The final act tells the viewers how the band overcame their problems.

The story at times overwhelms the viewer with emotion. The fans of the four seasons are often left teary eyed, or shouting at the top of their lungs, singing along the tunes of Bob Gaudio. The actors do such a great job that at times people forget that they are not the real members of the band.

Reception

The show has been cast in London, Melbourne, Broadway, Chicago, Las Vegas, Toronto and Auckland. The New York Times and the Daily Telegraph, both gave extremely positive reviews to the show, stating that the performance by the cast was extraordinary and the music surreal.

The original Broadway production in 2005 dominated the Tony Awards. The story with the Grammy Awards and the Drama Desk Awards was no different. The London, Toronto and Melbourne productions also received awards in their opening years.

Tickets

Broadway Jersey Boys tickets are available online. The show caters to rock and roll fans of all ages, but enjoys a massive following when it comes to mature audience who were in their younger years when the band was at its peak. If you are a four seasons fan, a rock fan, or a fan of good music and theater in general, this show is for you.
