JERSEY BOYS presented Broadway in Cincinnati through Oct. 20. I attended the opening night performance.
JERSEY BOYS: The Story of Frankie Valli and the Four Season returns to the Aronoff Center for a limited one-week run.
JERSEY BOYS is one of my favorite jukebox musicals, and this tour boasts an incredibly strong ensemble lead by the “original” Four Seasons: Corey Greenan as Tommy DeVito, Michael Milton as Nick Massi, Eric Chambliss as Bob Gaudio, and a vocally impressive Jon Hacker as Frankie Valli. Hacker is a Cincinnati native and a Wright State University alum who closed out the original Broadway run in the same role.
The nearly sold-out opening night audience stopped the show with their applause after several numbers and stayed on their feet through the curtain call and encore. A great time for even the most causal of Four Seasons fans.
My rating: 4.75 out of 5.
