As of last fall, JERSEY BOYS has been seen on the stage by more than 25 million people around the world. So,is it really that good? Tough question. My first instinct is to say JERSEY BOYS ain't all that. It's a backstage, jukebox, rise-and-fall musical, a combination that ought to be the broadest, most formulaic thing you've ever seen.

But now I can add to that list Andrea Canny, the actress who originated Belle in Disney-MGM Studios' BEAUTY AND THE BEAST LIVE ON STAGE some 27 years ago and who is currently making a holds-her-own-and-that's-saying-something turn as Mama Rose in Winter Garden every night through September 22.
