BAD LANGUAGE

what a pity a brilliant production spoilt by bad language, i was very glad that i didn't take my 88yr old mother as i usually do i appreciate that during the times of growing up in new york this was the norm but felt that it was not neccesary for the f word to used so many times, theatre was good and seating was well organised

WONDERFUL TALENT BUT WHERE WERE THE SONGS?

If you're a baby boomer and want a dose of nostalga then this is for you. I saw it late last year and the talent is amazing. None of the cast disappoint. However, I agree with a lot of the other reviewers who, like me, were waiting for a sort of grande finale of a great burst of all the songs. This unfortunately didn't happen. Too many songs were interrupted and unfinished and left me with a slightly dissatisfied feeling once it had finished. My husband however, thoroughly enjoyed it and would probably rate it as a 5. The history of the group though was really interesting and overall it is a great show.

CUT OUT THE BAD LANGUAGE

Went to see this show a few weeks ago and felt that an excellent show was ruined by the use of the 'F' word. There were kids in the audience on the evening we were there. Why should they, or anyone else for that matter, be subjected to this language which I am sure was not widely used in the era in which this show was based. The cast were all brilliant musically and it is a great 'feel good' musical. Just cut out the language please!

MIXED EMOTIONS

After leaving the theatre I had a feeling of mass disappointment and enjoyment. I though the show was really good, the songs are excellent and also the dancing. The reason why I was very disappointed was because the guy who was supposed to play Frankie Valli (Ryan Molloy) was not there; instead we had the ‘alternate’ Frankie. He has a good voice but not very good acting skills. I don’t feel it is fair that we had the ‘alternate’ Frankie without a reason or warning. Please check that Ryan Malloy will be appearing at your show!

NOT SO SURE THEY WEREN'T MIMING AT TIMES

I really enjoyed the Jersey Boys, but I was somewhat disappointed and surprised as I am absolutely convinced that at times they were miming to the original tracks. Did anyone else think this or am I just barking Mad?

GOOD SHOW BUT ROTTEN SEATS

Recently attended a matinee performance of Jersey Boys. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and music but thought the ambiance of the era could have been captivated equally as well with a little less bad language - just enough to set the scene. However the leg room for our seats in the Dress Circle was appalling - my husband, who is just under 6ft with average length legs would have had to sit with his legs in a wide V shape if we had not been able to move seats as the theatre was not full - we made several moves before we found seats with more leg room right at the back. Other people were doing the same. Tickets for these seats have a face value of £60+ so comfort would be expected. Also it was a bitterly cold day and the theatre was not very warm - many coats put on in the interval. I appreciate these theatres are very old but the prices charged are the same as others with much better seats.

BAD CASTING!

Saw the show last night. Not what is was im afraid! Lead was not a patch on Ryan molloy! Singing was all up an down! Out of tune an time. Coudnt dance. He did look the part so I'm guessing that is why he was a cover. Michael watson was the actor. Won't be going back if this is the best they have!

What we thought

If you've seen it before, I recommend seeing it again to see how the new cast and theatre, and newcomers will delight in the sheer toe-tapping fabulousity of the numbers.

Even if you weren't a twinkle in your parents' eyes in the Sixties, Jersey Boys has plenty of catchy non-stop hits that you are bound to recognise.
