‘Oh What a Preview’

‘Oh What a Preview’

Jersey Boys media preview

Last night I had the privilege of joining our stellar (and crazy fun) theatre critic Brian P. Sharp for a quick walk across the street to the Schuster Center for a media preview of Jersey Boys which will be gracing the stage of the Schuster this upcoming January (January 17 – February 5, 2012).

Tickets don’t go on sale until September, but anyone wishing to purchase season tickets can get their Jersey Boys tickets early (by visiting www.ticketcenterstage.com). And let me tell you, you want to go see this show. I had no idea the buzz about it was so huge – the New York Post, Letterman, the Today Show, Leno, the New York Times – they’ve all declared it a hit from the start.

Last year, I was lucky to get Wicked tickets for Christmas and we also got the opportunity to see Phantom of the Opera. I was so looking forward to both and both were superb, but I think I might be blown out of the water with Jersey Boys. My mom used to listen to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons all the time when I was a little girl and I think I even saw them live at SeaWorld of all places in the early ‘90s. Can that be right?

The actors who play Tommy DeVito and Bob Gaudio in the production were on hand to answer some questions. They were very chatty and talked about some exciting points in the show.

Special thanks to Victoria Theatre Association for putting it all together. And thanks so much for my goody bag! And yes, that’s Mamma DiSalvo’s sauce and it says, “Oh what a sauce.” I see some Jersey Boys inspired spaghetti and meatballs in my future.

Good stuff.

Great, now I have Oh What a Night in my head … it will be there the rest of the day!
