I can honestly say that Jersey Boys was not on my list of plays to see. I was pleasantly surprise sitting in the National Art Centre watching this world renowned play.
I now understand why this play has won numerous accolades and awards.
The Ottawa Citizen review describes this play best.
The history of this foursome is told in four acts (book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice; music by Bob Gaudio; lyrics by Bob Crewe). One man tells his own story per act as the overall plot unfurls. It’s a structure that works well because it builds and fulfills expectation and keeps the story moving at a healthy clip.
I am incredibly tempted to get another pair of tickets for this show! There is still time! Jersey Boys is at the Ottawa National Arts Centre till July 7th.
Trust me you don't want to miss it! Get your tickets here.
