This was our 5th time seeing JERSEY BOYS!. What a disappointment. The other times, the characters danced while singing and the costumes were more elaborate , not just gray suits. This time they played fake musical instruments with very little dance steps. The constant swearing added nothing to the performance. The actor who played Frankie had a great voice but had ?sandy colored hair and a 2019 haircut. Many songs were cut short and four songs were missing. The gay guy is new. If this was the first time seeing it, you were probably entertained. This was a very watered down version.

John Hacker as Valli brought the whole cast down. He was off key to start several songs. He also was going an octave lower than Valli. The actor playing Bob Gaudio was great. The rest of the cast seemed to be going through the motions. Have seen the show several times. The punchlines have a certain oomph. Like “Valli with and I”. But the actors here were just saying lines. Not delivering them. It is a shame. The tickets were very expensive and the show was not up to quality. We still love the music and had a good time. Because the music is the music.

I am not a prude but the language was a complete turn off. This show should be rated. Everybody kept saying this show is so good you should see it. I bought the tickets really didn't know what it was about. Let me say I am not a fan of this group, this is not my era. I know their music but I wouldn't waste my time listening to it.. When I realized what the show was I was disappointed I couldm't wait for it to end. Worst show I have seen.
