Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and his journey from being a boy with talent to an international superstar. The show's ongoing tour has sold out at nearly every venue the cast has performed at, while TicketHunterOnline announces a 25% discount for all upcoming 2012 and 2013 Jersey Boys tickets.
The first act of the Broadway show revolves around Tommy DeVito, and his attempts to create a successful music album; the second half of the musical focuses on the now-successful album... and its troubles with fame, money, as well as family.
Despite its small size, the cast of the production is fantastic. Brad Weinstock steals the show as the iconic Frankie Valli, and his performance is supported by an unforgettable Tommy DeVito, played by Colby Foytik. Jason Kappus is extremely entertaining as Bob Gaudio, and although Brandon Andrus is the least featured among the four, he is memorable as Nick Massi.
The staging throughout the show is sleek and the transitions are smooth. Pop art images are displayed on an electronic billboard that flies over the stage in nearly every scene. This vibrant display is a clever method of introducing scene changes and helps keep the transitions moving.
Jersey Boys acts as a time warp, transporting the audience back to the 1960s. Eye-catching costumes, thrilling music, and traditional set pieces all add to the ’60s atmosphere. The show features several hit songs such as “Walk Like a Man,” “Bye Bye Baby,” and the show favorite, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”
The musical is fast paced, with many small character roles in addition to the four main actors. Among them is Valli’s girlfriend Loraine, played by Carnegie Mellon alumna Kaleigh Cronin. Cronin, who graduated in 2011 with a degree in musical theatre, plays a total of 18 different characters in the show. “There are only three women in the show; we play over 50 parts combined,” Cronin said. “And that’s everything from waitresses to the boys’ mothers and girlfriends and nurses.”
With its classic music and great American success story, it’s no wonder that Jersey Boys is drawing in theater patrons from across the country. So far, the show has experienced an enthusiastic reception from the public, which goes to show TicketHunterOnline's incentive to give a 25% reduction of the production's normal ticket price.
The tour cast has been making its way around the World for nearly a year, among it's most popular upcoming dates are Las Vegas NV, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Atlanta, London, and multiple tour dates in Canada scheduled in late 2012. All scheduled dates for 2012 & 2013, in addition to Jersey Boys tickets, are to be referenced at TicketHunterOnline.com.
