Life As I Know It

Jersey Boys Love

Okay, so I was sceptical.  Everyone I knew raved about Jersey Boys, so I gave in and decided I really wanted to see it.  And I saw it.  And it was amazing.  Like, so amazing I can’t explain it.  Generally, I am a sucker for the stories of musicians, be it Walk the Line, Jersey Boys, what have you.  I love seeing the tie from song to song, and knowing where that came from.  But mostly, I love these songs.  These songs make me want to live in the 50s-60s.  I am in awe of the voices not only of the original Four Seasons of course, but of these men–these present day men–who are getting up there and singing taxing numbers for hours and days on end, and who sound so incredible.  The cast we saw last night could have been the Four Seasons.  They had the vocal style and the choreographed moves at the mic.  I cried twice–“My Eyes Adored You” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”.  And if you still aren’t convinced, just take a look at the original cast recording, and then tell me it wouldn’t be incredible to see these numbers performed just like they used to be, with the sounds, the costumes, the style, and the moves.  I just…  Amazing.  Check out the website and the videos under the “media” section for a little taste.
