On Monday I was all about that 'New Jersey Nights' feeling. I went to see the show in The Gaiety Theatre in Dublin with my Dad. It was, simply.... Amazing. Everything from set design to wardrobe, and all of the details in between was right on point. Not to mention the sheer talent that was presented by the singers, dancers, and musicians on stage.
It brought me back to my days on the stage as a little kid, except of course... these guys were actually good at what they do as opposed to my, scream the words and jump around approach to entertainment. They had the whole audience in the palm of their hands, and the clicks and air-grabs were a beautiful sight to behold. Well done boys.
The show (staring Damion Scarcella, Simon Schofield, Jon Hawkins, and William Hazel) takes you right through the musical career and hit tunes of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. So basically if you like frankie Valli you'll adore this show, and let's face it - who doesn't like Frankie Valli?
If I had to choose, I would say that Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Bye Bye Baby, My Girl, Grease, and Blue Moon (especially the part when Simon got the note wrong and laughed for about 10 minutes...) were my favorite performances of the night. I really did try to narrow that list down to two or three but I just couldn't do it.

I took a few cheeky snaps on the night, take a look.
P.S. if any of the cast happen to be reading this then I would LOOOOOVE a free ticket to see the show again before you leave Ireland?! Hahaha (half joking, but half not).
