Friday night in New York, what better than tapping your foot to the Jersey Boys, story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

Saw Jersey Boys at this small (but nice), theater in NYC on June 7th 2014. The show was AWESOME but this review is on the theater. First of all, the staff was friendly and courteous..which is sometimes hard to find in NYC. The bathrooms were EXTREMELY CLEAN as was the lobby and theater itself. The only thing I thought was...

My wife and I were in NY for her birthday recently and managed to get tickets the same day to see The Jersey Boys. I can safely say this is one of the best live shows we have ever seen. The energy, professionalism, content, were all top notch. The cast sang 32 songs in 2 hrs 15 mins,tell the story... More
