Musical: Jersey Boys rock!

I finally caught Jersey Boys a week ago, after an entire month of waiting. Was it worth the wait? Absolutely. The performance was captivating, to say the least. Or perhaps it’s because I’ve always been a fan of oldies music. The co-ordination, acting and singing involved in the entire performance was massive, and I think the ticket price is well worth it. In fact, I would highly recommend anyone and everyone else to catch it. Then again, I have probably said the same to ten people, and received ten different versions of a skeptical and doubtful “uhh-ok-I’ll-think-about-it“. Oh well.

To catch a sneak peek of how the performance is like, head over to Jersey Boys Australia’s video page, and click on Medley.

And did I mention that Frankie Valli, the original lead vocal for the Four Seasons is still going impressively strong at his age? Have a look at his rendition of Sherry:

Tips on ticket buying:

  • Book early, good seats are hard to get on a last-minute basis. You won’t want shitty seats on such a great performance.
  • Be prepared to spend for a good seat. A reserve seat is $120 a pop on a weekend noon – but definitely worth it.
  • Get the CDs if you are hooked after the show – very, very worth it.

I’m thinking of catching Jersey Boys again hmm. On a director’s seat this time round. Verrrrrry tempting heh heh.
