"Loved…loved…loved it!! The music was fantastic and the energy was felt throughout the entire theatre. Having grown up in Belleville, New Jersey, it was fun to identify with the references they made to people, places and especially the customs of growing up Italian 'in the neighborhood'."

Abby (34, Nutley, NJ)

"Watching Jersey Boys gave me a special reminder of my childhood and that wonderful feeling of home. I felt a special connection to the show as I grew up in a house where this music was played all the time. I also couldn't help but smile as they talked and joked about so many places in Jersey that I spent time in as a kid and still do today!"

Jenny (40, Clifton, NJ)
