International hit show New Jersey Nights arrives at Liverpool's Empire Theatre to celebrate the incredible work of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons during their first ever UK tour. This musical journey includes such hits as "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Rag Doll", "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You", "Oh What a Night", "Sherry" and many more, all performed with a live band.
The cast have great chemistry together, interacted brilliantly with the audience and their voices truly complement one another as they display an unbelievable and impressive variety of vocal skills and abilities through their romantic performances. The audience were educated and reminded of the Four Seasons history, success, musical influences and even moments in Frankie Valli's life which led to "Fallen Angel" being dedicated to his family.
The choreography is fantastic and the themed costumes add to the performances setting. The lighting also set the 60’s mood but the band could have been highlighted a little more as they disappeared into the background during most of the first half of the show.
This is a must see 5 star performance as Jon Hawkins, Duncan Heather, Ricky Rojas and Damion Scarcella give a thrilling concert. On the night I attended, the audience gave a standing ovation after singing and dancing along to nearly every song and cheering loudly in appreciation.
