BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS - An Electrifying Entertaining EveningBWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS - An Electrifying Entertaining Evening
by Frank Benge - Mar 27, 2015

The 60's were an exciting time for music in America, due in no small part to the proliferation of groups with amazing vocal harmonies like The Mamas & Papas, The Beach Boys, Spanky & Our Gang and The Four Seasons. JERSEY BOYS is a jukebox musical based on the song catalog of The Four Seasons; however, unlike most jukebox musicals, JERSEY BOYS features an intelligent script where the songs flow with the story instead of being forced into a storyline. I suspect the participation of Rick Elice, who was also one of the scriptwriters for the charming and witty PETER AND THE STARCATCHER had more than a little to do with the intelligence and theatrical storytelling skill on display here.

BWW Reviews: 'Can't Take Your Eyes Off' JERSEY BOYS at Hershey TheatreBWW Reviews: 'Can't Take Your Eyes Off' JERSEY BOYS at Hershey Theatre
by Marakay Rogers - Jan 29, 2015

When is a jukebox musical not a 'jukebox musical'? If anything, it's when the musical is by its subjects, when they're an integral part of putting the show together. If JERSEY BOYS were any less a jukebox musical, it would be the original band on stage talking about their story and giving a concert themselves. With music by band member and composer Bob Gaudio, lyrics by 'Fifth Season' Bob Crewe -- in short, with the music and lyrics by the band's songwriters, one of whom was a band member, and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, JERSEY BOYS isn't as much a jukebox musical as it is a musical documentary of a hair-raising story that wasn't in the news at the time.
