5.0 star rating Dr. Ruth from southeastern PA


The show was wonderful in all respects. Hare to tell this bunch from the originals and the lead singer was incredible. That said, the playhouse is still the playhouse and we could hardly move in our seats. The show would have had more standing ovations if people could move after sitting on their most uncomfortable seats. Wonderful day though

Saw this in Vegas. Absolutely loved it. Recommend it especially for those that lived in that era.

Jersey Boys is fantastic. Loved every minute of this show.

4.5 star rating Jbiz from South St. Paul


Saw opening night last night. Tough sittin still in your chair and not sing for this one. Wanted to get up and dance & sing along. Fun time! Good seats on main floor. Definately recommend for a night out. Did take my children, granted, later teens. Some profanity, though nothing they haven't heard already! Best thing, even though I dislike driving Mpls, parking ramp, skyway, we were right there. In and out! Yah, baby!

Went to see this show in NY and it was absolutely fantastic. Can't wait for it to come to Boston to see it again and bring my husband.

My son (in his 20s) and I went to see this- he enjoys all kinds of music but wondered if this would be best for the "grey haired." We both LOVED it! Interesting biographical story with great dialogue--pay attention or you'll miss some of the best lines. Yes, there is strong language -it's Jersey real, and neither it nor parts of the story are suitable for young kids --or those who are offended by profanity or true-to -life teenage boy events. None-the -less it is a non-stop, feel-good experience; the crowd left the Buell Theater singing and clapping. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because there were a couple of very minor issues with the sound and a few notes not quite right-but I expected even more of these kinds of issues on opening night, so was pleasantly surprised. We had orchestra seats, in the double letter section-great view. It was money well spent for a night to remember. Absolutely recommended!!!
