JERSEY BOYS MAKES A TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO BOSTON

JERSEY BOYS MAKES A TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO BOSTON

JERSEY BOYS, the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-winning hit musical, returned to Boston and received rave reviews once again  at the Colonial Theatre, where it opened Friday, December 17 (performances began Thursday, December 16) and will play through Sunday, January 30, 2011.  From Boston, JERSEY BOYS will play Baltimore’s Hippodrome Wednesday, February 2 through Sunday, February 27.

BOSTON HERALD

The Boston Herald’s Lauren Beckham Falcone writes “The boys are back in Boston – bringing the Tony- and Grammy-Award-winning musical to the Colonial Theatre – and audiences to their feet.  JERSEY BOYS shines, shimmies and sizzles on the stage.  The foursome playing the foursome is seamless, a pitch-perfect quartet of impressive pipes and emotional storytelling.”

BOSTON GLOBE

The Boston Globe’s Don Aucoin writes “Joseph Leo Bwarie’s performance as Frankie Valli goes beyond mere mimicry.  The Emerson College grad doesn’t simply channel Valli; he inscribes the role with a breath-catching artistry of his own as he soars, without seeming effort, into the upper reaches of the human voice.”

CAPE COD TIMES

The Cape Cod Times’ Gwenn Friss writes “Joseph Leo Bwarie, Quinn VanAntwerp, Steve Gouveia and Matt Bailey are extraordinary.  The singing is terrific and the show’s 10-piece band is perfect.”

THE BOSTON CHANNEL

The Boston Channel says “Jersey and Boston have a lot in common … proud, territorial, a wee bit arrogant and certainly not the least bit intimidated by the big cheeses in the Big Apple.  Broadway may have launched JERSEY BOYS, but when it swings into the Hub, it’s ours!  It’s built just like the songs it celebrates … catchy, clever, and heartfelt.  Joseph Leo Bwarie is a unique talent portraying a unique talent.  Bwarie’s singing is jawdroppingly good.  Matt Bailey as Four Seasons bad boy Tommy DeVito is pitch perfect as the loud mouth schemer who knows Frankie is his ticket out of the neighborhood.  Quinn VanAntwerp as Bob Gaudio, tall, rosy cheeked, and brimming with intelligence, he’s a force to be reckoned with on his own terms.“
