This year for Christmas, my sister was going to take me to see Jersey Boys, the Broadway musical. In all honesty, I didn't know what it was about, but I love musicals so much, I didn't really care!
Funny story: Before the show started, I enjoyed a glass of wine. When the show started with a catchy number, I couldn't understand a single word of the song. "I can't be drunk?!?" I thought to myself. I tried listening as closely as I could really trying to understand the words... and I just couldn't! "The acoustics must be terrible in here" I thought, trying to make myself feel better! When the song was almost over, it dawned on me.... they were singing in French! A French rapper had remade one of Fankie Valli's songs and it became a number 1 hit in France in 2002.
The show was FANTASTIC! I enjoyed every minute of it. The music was great, the story was interesting, and there was so much comedy. At the end, the entire crowd got up and danced! :)
Here's a quick synopsis of the show:
