“The Jersey Boys, 6 star performance.”

Fantastic performance, oh what a show. The Jersey Boys played to a packed house at Sunderland Empire.
Received a well deserved singing, dancing standing ovation.
One of the best shows ever to come to the Empire.

I went to see this with my mum and her friends, I didnt know much about the Jersey Boys story but I absolutely loved it, the show was amazing and the old charm of the empire theatre took me back to the time of Frankie Valli and the four seasons!

As usual it was a nightmare getting out of the stalls and the toilets had huge queues but it was worth it to see the show which is a well deserved 5*

Got bought Jersey boys tickets for my 60th birthday and have been looking forward to it for months, wasn't disappointed the show was great and the perfect setting a lovely theatre. It was sold out which is always a good sign, good seat with unobstructed view.

just got back from the empire in sunderland..took the better half to see the jersey boys which i had promised to do way back. we went with another couple and i booked the seats.the only seats available were in the upper circle..should have known..why were they unbooked..still how bad could it be..wadda mistaka to maka.a mountain goat would have trouble getting to the seats which are designed for ronnie corbett sized people..should you not be told this on booking.it was also so hot as to be uncomfortable..very uncomfortable for some people.the real kicker was when we had a drink before the show and booked for refreshments at the interval..where do they get those prices from..£40 for 6 glasses of wine and a small bottle of beer. that is seriously taking the mickey..the point is give the empire a miss uless you can get the best seats and avoid the bar at all costs..ps the show was good though.

we couldn't get 4 seats in the Dress Circle so booked a box, well, it was my husbands birthday, being in a box makes the show feel super special. My son in law said he loved being in a box, he felt so special, (he is anyway) fantastic show, well worth a visit.
