REVIEWS

In a year in which one pop-songbook show after another has thudded and died, "Jersey Boys" passes as silver instead of as the chrome-plated jukebox that it is..."Jersey Boys" has the advantage of featuring singers that actually sound like the singers they are portraying and a technology-enhanced band that approximates the original sound of their music...While "Jersey Boys" is based on fact, it rarely leaps over the clichés of a regulation grit-to-glamour blueprint...Once the Four Seasons classics are rolled out, every other pair of shoulders in the house starts a-twitchin'.

- Ben Brantley, The New York Times

One big thing this show has that others of the genre don't is a director, Des McAnuff, who puts a really stylish gloss on it...The other thing it has is John Lloyd Young, a singer with an astounding voice, who effortlessly imitates Valli's signature, a powerful falsetto...The book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice is a little long on narration, and you may find your eyes glazing over until the point, two-thirds of the way through the first act, when the boys break into television with an appearance on "American Bandstand." From that point on, though, you snap awake and happily ride the wave...It's the music that counts, and it's sheer joy.
