‘Jersey Boys’ couldn’t take my eyes off of you

I’m not one to brag but if you had seen “Jersey Boys” two days in a row, you’d be writing an article too.

“Jersey Boys” graced San Diego with amazing talent Thursday, May 11, at the San Diego Civic Center.

I went in blind to the show on Thursday having not been familiar with their music or any Broadway performance.

I’ve always dreamed of going to New York and seeing a show but instead the show came to me.

The “Jersey Boys” was born 13 years ago at the La Jolla Playhouse. The show is based off a 1960/’70s quartet made up of bandleader Tommy DeVito, bassist Nick Massi and Frankie Vali.

It was a fast-paced show and they played classic hits like “Can’t Take my Eyes Off of You.” I would recommend the show to anyone who is a fan or is considering attending their first show. For those interested in seeing the show, it will be at the San Diego Civic Center through Sunday.

The actors also surprised a group of 50 newly naturalized citizens and myself Wednesday, May 10, at Gompers Preparatory Academy by singing the national anthem and “I Wonder Why” by Dion and The Belmont.

Upcoming shows at the San Diego Civic Center and tickets can be found on their website.
