Jersey Boys Theatre

Theatre

We love the theatre. Read our reviews of many great shows from London's West End, Broadway and around the UK. We'd also love to hear from you - so please do send us an email and let us know what you think of our site. And keep coming back - we add new stuff to the site all the time.

Based on the book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and their rise to success as they created the soundtrack to a generation. As Rick Elice says "It's about revenge and betrayal and crime and punishment and family and women".

It really is all about the songs. They are all classics. If you know and like the four seasons then you will love the show. If you don't know the four seasons you may surpise yourself.

Starlight Express

Starlight Express

It's bedtime, and the lights are out, but this little boy has different plans. It's race night for his toy trains, and Electra is racing against Greaseball to be champion. Rusty the steam train is outdated, so his plans to take the race and win the girl of his dreams (Pearl, the first class carriage) seem hopeless.

Can he succeed, and will the Starlight Express help him? This is essentially a simple love story like so many others, where the nice guy tries to win the girl, against all the odds - in this case by winning a race.

Music Andrew Lloyd Webber and Lyrics Richard Stylgoe

Sadly, Starlight is not in London's West End anymore, but there is a regional tour so you will still be able to see it. The production is excellent even in smaller theatres.
