    I go to Vegas 3-4 times per year and always see a show or two. But even after all the raves and reviews...I can't talk myself into Jersey Boys. I'm mid 40's...my gf is late 30s...and while we appreciate that era of music, we don't love it. We did love the musical Rock Of Ages...but we love that music!

    Our fav LV show is MJ One (amazing!) followed by LOVE and le Reve. Should I just DO IT and see JB's on next trip? I'm tempted to see MJ One again too.

    Saw it when it was at the Palazzo. Loved it! I think you'll enjoy it. Go for it!

    It's one of the best shows I've ever seen in Las Vegas! I would definitely go again!

    I was growing up when they were popular. I think I was about 10 when their string of hits started. If you enjoy any kind of rock, pop, doo-wop, this is for you!

    Another absolute "yes" for seeing Jersey Boys. I wasn't thrilled with the idea of seeing it when we went - hubby wanted to go. It turned out to be one of my favorite shows - so glad he talked me in to it. You'll love it!

    I haven't seen it, but had dinner with a couple folks last night who told me pretty much exactly what DMR says...

    Great show, great story, great performances, great music. Much better than RoA could imagine on the strongest drugs. MJ can't hold FV's jock.

    (Can you tell we loved the show?)

    I'm a 23 y/o guy who grew up with parents who listened to a wide variety of music. I saw the show in June and enjoyed it. I didn't leave the theater singing and dancing like a lot of people did, but it was worth the money.

    I thought it was great, but I can relate to it being from the Bronx and Italian American. However they got 2 standing ovations at the end of the show.

    One more vote for "just go see it." I'm no big fan of musicals, but I'd see Jersey Boys again in a heartbeat.

    I saw it locally in Providence and it was great! Well worth the time and money.

    It's also the only Las Vegas show I ever remember having an intermission. It's short, and they show a very entertaining nostalgic film of such things as the bridges in Jersey and such.

    I don't think I've **EVER** heard from someone who did not like this show!

    Well, here you go. I fell asleep. Aside from a couple of engaging scenes (My Eyes Adored You...Oh What a Night), it's not in my top 10 shows or musicals.

    I went only because Diamond tix were offered that particular month, and I was blown away! I do really enjoy the music, but I wasn't prepared for the depth of story, it was engaging. Doubt you would be disappointed, it is very well done.

    On a related note, if you like 70's and 80's rock music, go see Raiding the Rock Vault at the LVH. Wow, just WOW.

    Talk you into it? It's more like talk you out of going again after you see it. It's just not music but a true story.
     
    Here we go again!

    Saw it two weeks ago. I went grudgingly, but thoroughly enjoyed it and would see it again in a heartbeat.

    Give it a shot...you'll be glad you did.

    We have seen it twice at Paris and would definitely go again. True....we are children of the 60's and grew up on the music but did not know the story of FV & the 4 Seasons. The music is wonderful.....the story is well done and interesting and the entire show is 1st rate. I think anyone could truly enjoy.....kind of hope it is on the free show list for Diamonds when we go in March!!
