Broadway’s Sensation Jersey Boys Superb in Sydney

BROADWAY’S SENSATION JERSEY BOYS SUPERB IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

JERSEY BOYS, the Tony, Olivier, Grammy Award-winning international smash hit musical that just won the Helpmann Award (Australia’s Tony Award) for Best Musical, opened to rave reviews in Sydney at the Theatre Royal on September 18.

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

The Sydney Morning Herald’s John Shand writes “JERSEY BOYS’ book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice fizzes with snappy dialogue and bullying one-liners. It creates credible characters for not only the four leads but also a supporting cast led by Daniel Scott’s Bob Crewe (the band’s shrewd, amusing lyricist/producer) and Lisa Adam as Valli’s wife, Mary, whose sharp tongue cannot prevent a slide into disillusionment.  The show is defined by its singing. Fox’s remarkably Valli-like falsetto creates truly thrilling moments in the harmonies (Rag Doll being a notable example), and the many Gaudio/Crewe-penned hits such as Big Girls Don’t Cry and Walk Like a Man explode from the stage with verve, polish and conviction.  The cast’s sterling efforts are amplified by the expert creative team that realised the original Broadway production, including the director Des McAnuff, choreographer Sergio Trujillo and set designer Klara Zieglerova. A band under Luke Hunter provides sure accompaniment.  The upward trajectory of the band’s success rides easily on the many memorable songs, which I’ll bet were being sung on the way home by many a smiling face.”   To read the entire review, click here:
