Coverage: Jersey Boys @ Istana Budaya

Coverage: Jersey Boys @ Istana Budaya
Kuala Lumpur, 18th April 2014 – Our team of journalist and photographer from wljack.com & loong-updates.blogspot.com has been given an opportunity to watch the amazing show of “Jersey Boys” yesterday. It’s not a wonder why the awards winning “Jersey Boys” could be one of the longest running shows on Broadway. It’s really spectacular!

Date: 15th-27th April 2014
Time: Weekday 1 show at 8:30pm, weekend 2 shows at 3pm and 8:30pm.
Monday (21st April) is dark day no show.
Venue: Istana Budaya



Summary Of The Story:
JERSEY BOYS revolves around the true-life story and the remarkable rise to stardom of one of the most successful bands in American pop music history – Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons - how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time.

Apart from featuring the band’s 60’s American pop worldwide hits, JERSEY BOYS also tells the story of the inspiring journey of The Four Seasons from the mean streets of Newark, New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It’s all about the friendships, hardships, fights and the success resulting from a New Jersey “handshake”.

Audiences were amazed by the top-notch singing by the casts!
Without any doubt, the crowd has totally enjoyed the singing by the casts. The quality of their vocal was brilliant. The whole show feels like a real concert of the legendary 60s American pop as more than 80% of the show has consisted of mesmerizing singing by the casts.

Impressive All-rounder Performers!
As mentioned, the casts have great voice. However, besides the splendid vocal, they also have great acting skills, good chemistry with each others as well as the amazing skills in changing props on stage. Different from other show, the casts in this show themselves were the ones who switched the props on stage for majority of the time! Their versatile talents were really remarkable!

Seamless flow of scenes with tremendous smooth props change!
The flow of the show is very well paced and there was not a single moment of interruption. Everything blends in seamlessly with music and well-written scripts without any moment of complete silence. (Except for the short break session of course.)

The most impressive part of the show is how good and smooth the props were changed throughout the show. The transition is so perfect and I am sure the audiences who have seen the show would totally agree with that. Totally brilliant!


Backdrop with comical relief! Scenes of real-life documentary video!
Throughout the whole show, the screen at the backdrop has been changing accordingly to the mood, theme as well as the background setting for the plot. Occasionally, there were some comical arts being shown on the screen which provide additional comic relief for the audience.

Besides, the team is also thoughtful enough to insert some real-life documentary video of THE Four Seasons to allow us to have a glimpse on the real 60s American pop band which has once stormed the music industry with their hits.


Experience the life of THE FOUR SEASONS!
Many important moments of THE FOUR SEASONS were really brought to LIVE with these wonderful backdrops and props. The audience could almost feel like they are in these boys’ shoes during the ups and downs of their life. You could almost feel like you are in the recording room with, in the club for their singing or even being at the backstage of their world tour concert.

Great Features of 60s Hits!
The show features many of the bands’ worldwide hits, including the ever-popular  CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU as well as other hits such as WALK LIKE A MAN, BYE BYE BABY (BABY GOODBYE) and etc. It’s really entertaining to listen to all these good songs in one show! I believe the fans of 60s will totally enjoy it!

Inspiring and Thoughtful performance!
Despite being a jukebox musical, the show has provided some insightful moments for the audience as well. It has allowed us to see how a huge success was achieved from something as simple as a handshake. The obstacles and hardships throughout their journey provide a lot of inspiration to never give up in life. The friendship and relationship with the family has reminded us the importance of spending more time with the closest people in our life. All the messages delivered were really thoughtful!

Overall, it’s a brilliant musical which must not be missed!



“Jersey Boys” will be running in Istana Budaya from 15th-27th April 2014. Do check out the show before it’s too late!

Last but not least, million thanks to Milestone Production Sdn Bhd for bringing “JERSEY BOYS” to Malaysia. It’s a wonderful show not to be missed by any music lovers!

Get ready for the awards winning “Jersey Boys” performance as it is finally coming to Malaysia. Jersey Boys has been performed over 3000 times and is now the 14th longest running show on Broadway. It has been seen and adored by over 18 million people.
Without a doubt, the show this time will definitely mesmerize the Malaysians with its brilliance and energy.

Introduction of the show:
Organised by Milestone Production Sdn Bhd, JERSEY BOYS revolves around the true-life story and the remarkable rise to stardom of one of the most successful bands in American pop music history – Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons - how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. Apart from featuring the band’s 60’s American pop worldwide hits, JERSEY BOYS also tells the story of the inspiring journey of The Four Seasons from the mean streets of Newark, New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records globally – all before they were thirty!

JERSEY BOYS, winner of 54 major awards including the 2006 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album, 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and winner of the Best Musical Tony Award® on Broadway, in London and Australia is not a tribute band but a full-scale Broadway musical that takes audiences behind the music” to tell the story of the group through each of the four members’ perspectives.

The storyline tells a tale about friendships, hardships, fights and the success resulting from a New Jersey “handshake”. The show opened on Broadway in 2005 and 3000 performances later is STILL running to full houses. JERSEY BOYS is the 15th longest-running show in Broadway history; having surpassed the record previously held by Hello, Dolly!

The Four Seasons are played by Grant Almirall (Chicago, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Frankie Valli; Daniel Buys (Boys in the Photograph, Mamma Mia!) as Tommy DeVito; Kenneth Meyer (Boys in the Photograph, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Bob Gaudio and television star Emmanuel Castis (Scandal, Isidingo, season 4 winner of Strictly Come Dancing) as Nick Massi with Jaco van Rensburg (Showboat, Chicago, Grease) playing Frankie Valli at certain performances. The three leading female characters, fondly dubbed, the “Jersey Girls” are played by Carmen Pretorius (Footloose!, Mamma Mia, Cabaret), Taryn-Lee Hudson (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Kidz Rock, Let the Good Times Roll) and Kirsten Murphy-Rossiter (Some Like it Vrot, Grease, M-Net’s Crimes Uncovered).

According to Grace Lee, Managing Director of Milestone Production Sdn Bhd, “In our constant endeavor to introduce world-renowned and the best theatrical productions to Malaysia, we are proud to be bringing this multi-award Broadway musical to our shores. In addition to bringing in world class quality entertainment to Malaysians, we hope it will also help boost tourism for our nation.” We believe Malaysians have a growing appetite for live theatre productions and it is our hope that with more of such world class quality presentations, Malaysia will be recognized as a hub for the performing arts in this region thus further boosting our nation’s tourism appeal.”

Synopsis
When Jason Wong reports for work as a typist, he makes it clear to his fellow worker, Miss Lee, that his employment is strictly temporary. Jason, a married man, is studying O Level at night, and with his uncle already in successful practice, there is every hope that his future will be a promising one. Miss Lee, the "supervisor" of the two-employee office, has a few dreams herself mostly of the romantic variety so often indulged in by not so young spinsters with widowed mothers to support. Jason and Miss Lee hit it off well, and as Jason's "temporary" tenure stretches on from weeks to months to years, they become involved in the shared experiences of close daily contact. And, within the short span of the play, they begin to age and grow grey. While they go on chattering of the important things that have happened to them and of the bright future that will be coming up any day, the futility of their existence becomes increasingly evident. When they finally dodder off with friendly "good night" to their unseen employer we have witnessed a cycle of life complete with the humour, sadness, self-delusion and reconciliation that underlie and infuse the human condition.

由導演黃麗珍執導的《打字經》是一齣橫跨三十年的舞台劇。朝氣十足的王志強一踏進辦公室就跟他的同事宣稱打字員這一份工作將只是他暫時性的工作而已,因為他真正的目標是考上大學,當一名成功的律師。李麗芬,王志強的主管,一名已到適婚年齡又遲遲嫁不出去的單身女子,最希望的就是趕緊離開家裡覓得屬於自己的幸福。日復一日、年復一年,王志強依舊沒有考取他想要的學位,而麗芬寄情的人又會不會給她她想要的幸福呢?
在短短的演出裡,他們從花樣年華慢慢邁向退休年齡,兩人即使有很多夢想但因為種種現實條件只能當打字員。兩人的關係從相敬如兵的同事慢慢發展成相互依賴的知己。他們退休的那一天也就是打字部門關閉的那一天,當他們向老闆道出再見時,我們仿佛也參與了他們這些年生活上的甜酸苦辣。
