Jersey Boys gets raves in Providence




JERSEY BOYS, the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical, received rave reviews in Providence at the Providence Performing Arts Center, where it opened Friday, May 14 (performances began May 12) and will play through Sunday, June 6.  From Providence, JERSEY BOYS will play Indianapolis, IN’s Murat Theatre Wednesday, June 9 through Sunday, July 3.
The Providence Journal’s Channing Gray raved “It’s hard to imagine anything derailing the phenomenon that is JERSEY BOYS.  The musical is among the top grossers on Broadway and breaking box office records wherever it plays. It’s a bona fide smash.  And the show lives up to the hype. The JERSEY BOYS tour that arrived last week at the Providence Performing Arts Center deserves the glowing reviews. It’s got an intriguing story to tell with lots of golden oldies tossed in for good measure, while the singing, especially the high falsetto licks from Joseph Leo Bwarie, is fabulous. Bwarie, who’s a tiny guy, turned out to be something of a sensation, and not just because of his stratospheric top register. He’s got a butter-smooth tenor that was just as fine singing sultry tunes such as ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.’  The whole quartet was terrific, singing with lots of edge and sounding just like the Seasons. In all, there are just shy of three-dozen songs in the show, which is quite a workout for Bwarie and the band. But on opening night the guys were up to the task, singing as though the music were written yesterday.”
