We went the theatre last night with Danna and Ryan to watch the Jersey Boys. I’ve been meaning to convince Lance that we need to see it, since it started! LOL! And we only got around to buying the tickets recently.
It was an amazing evening out. We met at Montecasino and had dinner at The Meat Co before the show. Wow! I haven’t eaten there in years, and so thoroughly enjoyed the fillet with blue cheese and vodka sauce that I ordered. The meat was just perfectly cooked… and surprisingly reasonably priced too! Everyone else enjoyed their meals too. The guys had burgers… naturally… and Danna had a fillet.
Anyhoo, on with the show (and yes, this was the only photo I took 😉 ).
I thought it was amazing. Loved the singing, thought the story overall was good, but most of all the music was spectacular. I don’t think I’ll listen to the music without thinking about the story from now on.
I have to say though, that I did struggle with the story in the beginning. So, I can honestly say that I didn’t really connect with the first half of the first half. But then, I was completely wow’ed… by everything… the story, the cast, the music, the singing… the whole thing.
There are only 1 or 2 days left of the season in Johannesburg, but it’s on it’s way to Cape Town. I highly recommend the show… if you live in Cape Town… make a plan, find some babysitters… you have to see it!
