JERSEY BOYS at the Alexandra Theatre

February 17, 2018

I finally saw JERSEY BOYS at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham on the latest UK tour. What a great show. Exceeded my expectations. The story of Franki Vallie and the Four Seasons. Dayle Hodge provided the amazing voice of Franki Vallie at our performance with Lewis Griffiths as Nick Massi his writing partner. Simon Bailey and Declan Egan play Tommy Devito and Bob gaudio that complete the foursome.

The bands story is cleverly weaved into the musical numbers and we have just the right balance of exposition and performance. There is the structure and formula which I saw in “Cilla” and the Carol King musical “Beautiful”, which originated with this show on Broadway in 2005. The show is built around the musical numbers and builds to a concert atmosphere. Great night out.
