About the show

The hit musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, which won four Tony Awards including Best Musical, and ran for over 11 years on Broadway, is revived Off-Broadway. More…

From the show:

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

FEATURING THE LEGENDARY TOP TEN HITS:

“Sherry” • “Big Girls Don’t Cry” • “Walk Like A Man” • “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” • “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night)”

Jersey boys isn't bad, but it isn't good, Joyless, Polished production

See it if you love the Four Seasons; otherwise, see BEAUTIFUL. JB is dark; these guys were no saints. Many good songs, but they're pale imitations.

Don't see it if you hate loud music, flashing lights (one song is an assault), or hearing mostly male voices (barely any women in this production). .

Also Jersey Boys was not my thing. The audience, though, loved it. This was... Read more Read less

Delightful, Great singing, Entertaining, Must see, Relevant

See it if You like a good story that is biographical in nature with great singing. Very good staging and story behind the music.

Don't see it if It can be sad at times, funny at times. Better if you know the story of Frankie avallie and four tops

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Great writing, Great singing

See it if you want an entertaining evening of non-stop action performed by a great cast singing songs you know around an interesting story.

Don't see it if you do not relate to the music or the New Jersey scene of the 1960's. Language may be offensive to some.

73
Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if you can relate in any way to Four Seasons' jukebox musicals.

Don't see it if you order plot with your jukebox.

Don’t be disappointed in what this off broadway juke box musical, centering on frankie valli and the four seasons, isn’t; enjoy it for what it is!

See it if iconic 4 Seasons' songs/Walk Like A Man, Rag Doll, Big Girls Don't Cry, etc., entertaining Jersey/mob ethos & well-constructed book

Don't see it if missing Valli's distinctive falsetto & persona leaves a hole in production; doesn't have polish of Bdway version

Also Of the Four Seasons, that is, the four members of the singing group, w... Read more Read less

Great singing and acting, Leads and ensemble complement each other, Rags to riches story in music, Conflicting perspectives builds interest

See it if High head tones of Frankie Valli, hit songs of Bob Gaudio, signature sound, dance steps and story of The Four Seasons now recreated off-Bdwy

Don't see it if Broadway production, cast, and heart-thumping sound system would each add a few points to the current off-Broadway score.

Also The Gold Standard for a jukebox musical is set by Jersey Boys with its... Read more Read less

Interesting back story, Fabulous 60's music, Delightful, Tremendously entertaining, Wonderful performers

See it if you like Frankie Valli, an interesting "back" story, wonderful performances, lots of energy, humor, pathos and overall delight.

Entertaining, Great singing

See it if It is so much better off-broadway! I was not a fan of it originally but it plays so well in an intimate setting. The singing is fantastic!

Don't see it if You do not like Juke Box Musicals. The book is thin and mostly bounces from song to song.

84
Entertaining, Great singing, Absorbing, Great movement/dancing, Indulgent

See it if you enjoy Four Seasons music. These guys sing it really well and do the accompanying movement well also. It works OK but not as well as Bway

Don't see it if you don't like the music. That is the big draw. The script is slow-moving at first and very self-serving. But those songs make up for it!

Don't see it if if you have no interest in the music of Frankie Valli nor stories about life in New Jersey; or you are expecting a Broadway production

Also Aaron De Jesus has an amazing singing voice and could convince you tha... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Must see

"That 'Jersey Boys' still delivers some Pavlovian thrills is a testament to the solid foundation laid by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice’s book, and by Des McAnuff’s deceptively straightforward production...Perhaps it was the bigger theater that allowed the book to breathe; at the subterranean N...

for a previous production "With Jersey Boys, the Broadway musical has finally done right by the jukebox, presenting the Four Seasons' infectiously energetic 1960s tunes as they were intended to be performed. True, the script adheres closely to the dramatic beats of a VH1 biopic. But under Des McAnuff's sleek direction, th...

for a previous production "Jersey Boys may aim only to be a shallow, big-budget, crowd-pleasing jukebox musical, but it’s a model of the genre. The real source of the show’s power—obvious as it sounds—is the songs. McAnuff shows a rare, laudable willingness to stick his finger in the electrical socket of pop music, to tak...

for a previous production "Jersey Boys, which tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, looks to be a winner. The splendid actors take turns narrating the group’s rise from lower-class Jersey doo-woppers to Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, and they’re as tight musically as they are persuasive dramatically. The a...
