Jersey Boys (Bank of America Theater) – 6/24/08
I revisited "Jersey Boys" (6/24/08) at the BEAUTIFULLY restored Shubert Theater, or ahem, should I say Bank of America Theater. It's my third viewing of the smash hit musical about the careers of the Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (once in NYC with the original cast and twice here), and what struck me about this viewing is that, along with the music, the staging is the star. Des MacAnuff has staged an exquisitely paced storytelling machine. This is a bullet proof hit. Oh yeah, I still had a lot of fun.
