JERSEY BOYS IS MARVELOUS IN MEMPHIS

JERSEY BOYS IS

MARVELOUS IN

MEMPHIS

The Memphis engagement of the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning musical JERSEY BOYS received rave reviews at the Orpheum Theatre where it will began performances January 27 and will play through February 2.  From there, JERSEY BOYS will play Fort Myers, FL’s Barbara B. Mann PA Hall February 17 through March 7.

COMMERCIAL APPEAL

Christopher Blank of The Commercial Appeal raves “If JERSEY BOYS can’t get the job done here in the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, then Broadway may as well stop making musicals out of pop songs. It’s not just that the show, which tells the detailed and often tumultuous story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, is a knock-yer-socks-off hit production.  No, the real genius of  JERSEY BOYS becomes apparent at the end, when you’re invariably participating in the standing ovation. And you ask yourself, ‘Why does this show make me so happy?’ The set is a skeleton of chain link fences and Jailhouse Rock stairs and platforms; most of the characters are felonious, foul-mouthed and flawed; and the story is as much tragedy as triumph.  How can all this possibly add up to a feel-good evening at the Orpheum theater?  Maybe those Tony Award voters who deemed JERSEY BOYS the best musical of 2005 were being generous to their neighbors across the river. Or maybe they were amazed that a musical can — ahem — walk like a man.  In an age when many throwaway pop singers prop up their music with spectacle or scandal, JERSEY BOYS reminds us why certain songs will still be bringing us joy for years to come.”

I LOVE MEMPHIS

I Love Memphis raves “The show is more like a rollicking concert than a Broadway musical. The super-energetic and fast paced show was almost solid music for the first ten minutes. Between (and sometimes during the songs), the four members of the band take turns as narrator. And becauseJERSEY BOYS is the story of a band, all of the songs fit naturally into the show and there’s no random bursting into song.  I was totally enamored with the cast, too. The actors (especially the ones who play the band) are wonderfully cast – fast-talking con man Tommy, angel-with-a-broken-halo Frankie, tightly wound Nick and lovably serious Bob (who looks like Mr. Schuster from Glee!) are all great fun to watch.  JERSEY BOYS will be at the Orpheum for three weeks (closing night is on Valentine’s Day). I highly recommend going to see it if you get the chance. It’s a fantastic, exuberant performance that’s a little irreverent, untraditional and completely fun.”  Click here to read the entire review:  http://ilovememphisblog.com/2010/01/28/its-a-sign-tommy-jersey-boys-at-the-orpheum/

KIM RADIO 98.9FM

Tom Prestigiacomo raves “You have a show that was made for everyone who sang along with their transistor radio.  JERSEY BOYS will put a lump in your throat and more than one song in your heart!”
