We were not aware of the adult rating and strong language of this show. Walked out at the start, ask for a refund and was flatly denied. So first night in New York was a total flop. The strong language should be displayed more prominently on this show. Now I have to live with “we should have gone to the... More

Today, Sunday 23 November 2014, my family (5 of us total) watched the 3 PM show of Jersey Boys. Jersey Boys, is a true musical, and a 360 degree Broadway show with a good story, comedy, drama and a lot of good music. Highly recommended!!

OK it is the only Broadway show we have seen. I am not into theater and was going for my wife. To my surprise I really enjoyed the show. Just a warning there is a lot of colorful (foul) language. Great acting and great music.

The quality of the voices, the energy of the performance and the strong air conditioning in the theatre were all pluses.

Saw this twice. Would see it again! I loved how quickly they move through his life story, without losing anything. Took my elderly father who was a song writer during that time and he said the story was well portrayed. He was tapping his foot through the entire musical! Not bad for an 88 year old

One of my highlights, the cast were amazing absolutely loved it, I got last minute tickets front row, went direct to the theatre rather than the ticket booth on Times Square who were offering tickets $75 that was half price!! Yet the theatre offered them for less!
