Jersey Boys

This isn't new I realise, but is technically music related. I got taken to this as a birthday present (thank you Georgie!) and it was AMAZING. The story itself is just the story of "Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons" and so is a good story. It's surprising how much stuff happened to a fairly innocent looking and sounding band. The staging was brilliant with fast moving sets and nice placing to give the whole play a really fast pace. I spent most the performance with my mouth hanging open. Or of course, singing along. The music was incredible, although I expected that. What I didn't expect was how many classics Frankie Valli has. Personal highlights are definitely Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Beggin' and Can't Take My Eyes Off You. The songs were rarely weaved into the story and instead performed with a live band making it even better.

Oh and they played a lot of the songs on Fender Telecasters which made me jealous.
