Tickets For Jersey Boys Broadway
A lethal skyline emerges over the stage, along with walls of chain-link fence tower. But it was very much here, on the not so beautiful but certainly musical streets of an Italian district in North Jersey, that a gangster turned guitarist, Tommy DeVito, and a bassist with a harmonious touch, Nick Massi, tried to form a musical band. They put Jersey on the musical map. Director Des McAnuff’s had done a fabulous job along with all his actors. The story is penned down deftly by Marshall Brickman (of Annie Hall fame) and Rick Elice. Right from the beginning, the show dealt with clichés like brawls over money, problem with the missus and the like. Nevertheless, the amazing Jersey flavor of the show really makes it difficult to avoid. The band’s stumble from fame does not come with the typical velour tracksuits and Percocet but with much more fascinating mob debts and strange battles over bathroom towels.
The actual strength of the show lies in the music and songs. McAnuff made sure that he extracted the true potential of the band. Some super hit numbers like the show stealer “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, “Walk Like a Man” and “Working My Way Back to You”, are really feet tapping and groovy. The entire star cast deserves a standing ovation. Yes. They are that good. Be it the critics or the general audience – no one can complain of any flaw in their performance. All of them put up a show that is really laudable. Christian Hoff plays the character of Tommy DeVito. Before starring in Jersey Boys, he was known for his acting prowess in another musical called 'The Who's Tommy'. Daniel Reichard plays Bob Gaudio. He made his entry to Broadway with Jersey. Before that, he was a popular face in off-Broadway's Forbidden Broadway and ‘The Thing About Men’. J. Robert Spencer portrays the character of Nick Massi. For him too, Broadway is first. John Lloyd Young plays the character of Frankie Valli brilliantly. He too is a first on Broadway. But no one can tell that he is not a veteran from the way he acted. The play is based on the book written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Bob Gaudio is the man behind the melodious music that is at par with the story line and theme. The lyrics are penned by the very talented Bob Crewe. All credits go to Howell Binkley for providing the appropriate lighting. Tickets For The Jersey Boys Broadway Information
