Oh, what a night!

As you may remember from this Tuesday post, my lovely in-laws have been visiting from Melbourne. They come up here to NSW, every couple of months, so we try to arrange a night out. Our once every 2-3 month date night, if you will.

As it was hubby's birthday on Wednesday, I decided to buy some tickets to see Jersey Boys - The Story of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons. It is currently playing at Theatre Royal in Sydney. We'd been to see the show last year and absolutely LOVED it. Love, love, LOVED it!

So on Saturday morning, the kids went to the grandparents house and hubby and I headed up to Sydney. We parked, had some lunch and then made our way to the theatre.

The music is wonderful and even though Frankie Valli was from my parents generation, I knew most of the songs and thoroughly enjoyed watching them performed. The cast are brilliant with amazing voices. Such talent!



The storyline unfolds and moves from scene to scene seamlessly. The story is told by each member of the band, through their eyes. It's wonderful to watch and the music ties it all in.


It's currently playing at Theatre Royal in Sydney which is a cosy venue. It's not very big, so all the seats have a great view of the stage. We sat upstairs in the front 2 solo seats (which made us feel very special). Here is the theatre as it was filling up:


If you're looking to go and see a show, I highly recommend this one. There are some excellent winter priced tickets available, so take your husband, take your friends and enjoy! We certainly did.

If you know me, you may have read a previous post HERE about what I love to collect... so I ofcourse  couldn't leave without buying one of these:


I'd like to go and see it a 3rd time before it finished in Sydney in August.
Is 3 times too many, to go and see the same show? What is your favourite stage show?

  1. I haven't seen a lot of stage shows, but I have loved most of them. My favorite(s) are Les Miserables and The Lion King. The two are very different and if I had to choose one, it would be Les Miserables. I was in London when I saw it and it was excellent.

  2. Sounds great & a show I would love to see. I haven't seen many lately but in my youth saw quite a few with my favourite being CATS. I saw it live 3 times so no 3 times is not too much. I also wore out the video & now have played the DVDs dozens of times. Great housework music! Wicked is about to start in Perth & after listening to it on CD while driving in the car think I would enjoy that a lot too. Tracee xx

  3. Jersey Boys is the BEST show ever. I didn't know it was finishing soon. :(
    I would love to see it one more time.
    We are playing the cd in the car all the time now. :)

  4. It sounds like a fabulous night! I say from the sound of how much you enjoyed it you should definitely go again!

  5. We've seen it twice and really want to go see it again. It is so uplifting with the great music. Another wonderful one is "Forever Plaid" if it comes around you. It is similar with a music group and terrific music.

  6. I don't know that it's my favourite but I have seen "Jesus Christ Superstar" at least seven times - in both amateur and professional productions (Showing my age here). I have also seen "Pirates of Penzance", "The Phantom of the Opera", "The Sound of Music" and "Oklahoma" more than once.

    "The Boy from Oz" (Hugh Jackman) had the most outstanding musical-theatre moment in it; he really deserved the standing ovation he got!

  7. I think I would enjoy jersey boys too.

    My favourite is Mary Poppins without a doubt the best I've ever seen.
