SHOULD BE RATED FOR LANGUAGE.

Although I enjoyed the music in this show I was very offended by the overuse of the F--- word. This was music from the time when I was a teenager and people did not use that word as they do today. It did not fit the time of the group. I feel that the word was added for shock value. I talked to people who saw the show earlier in the year and they said that it was used only a few times in the show. If this is a sign of how shows are changing I think I will not be coming to this theater again. I was on a bus trip with 53 people on it and we discussed this with several people on the bus and they all felt the same. It is a shame that such great music was spoiled by the gratuitous cursing of the cast. I would not recommend it for children.

ACOUSTICS AT CENTENNIAL HALL

The Jersey boys Concert was a disappointment as far as the acoustics - we did not hear most of the dialogue-- the music we could hear just fine -- but when the cast was talking we were lost -- had obtained hearing devices, but they did not work. We were seated on the left side of the orchestra to the back.

DISAPPOINTING

3 times is not a charm . Performance on 5/10/18 was at best mediocre. The lead actor playing Valli was perfectly subpar. He could barely carry a tune, and forget about hitting Valli’s storied high notes. I’m sure he was giving his all, but he performance pulled down the entire cast. Please, find someone who can actually mimic Valli for future Ft. Lauderdale dates. Dinner at Marti’s was again wonderful, thanks in large part to our favorite bartender Sara!

JERSEY BOYS

The acting was fabulous, the music wonderful. Very disappointing to hear so much vulgar language. I wouldn't take my mother to see it and even my adult daughter was upset by all the swearing. Left a bad taste despite the wonderful talent.

NOT THE BROADWAY JERSEY BOYS

Are we the only ones who thought this version of JERSEY BOYS was subpar? This was our fifth time see on the musical, and we were astounded by this watered down version. This version eliminated the great dancing by the Four Seasons while singing, had so much swearing that our ears nearly fell off, and few costume changes, The cast looked like characters of 2019, and the fellow who played Frankie Valli had sandy colored hair. The microphones were not working properly. Next time we’ll ask for the other version.

JERSEY BOYS

The original was so much better. The first half of the musical had very little music. The voices were awesome but the original version and story line was so much better

2.5 star rating Bob from Mabel MN

GREAT MUSIC AND STORY

Music, sound and acting = Great! Would have been a much better play without the foul language. There is no need for such filth but in todays world there is not enough pride in people to feel anything is wrong with it.
