"A splendid, feisty production directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson...There is passion, too, and painful loss, which is to say this is a full-blooded August Wilson play, realized with professional skill and heartfelt zest...Inevitably I can quibble with some of Mr. Santiago-Hudson’s casting...That said, Brandon Dirden is as good a Booster as I’ve seen, going toe-to-toe with John Douglas Thompson’s Becker in their central scene."

"Jersey Boys is a hybrid, a jukebox musical in motivation but also the musical version of a bio-pic of a singing group. The Four Seasons' story is pretty predictable. It's the music that makes us care, and for this, as with pop music in general, it matters whether pre-Beatles 1960s pop still reverberates in your emotional memory." Full Review
