WALK LIKE A MAN IS ROCKING THE GRAND THEATRE BLACKPOOL

Until 27th August 201

 

Walk Like A Man, the musical story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, was like listening to the soundtrack of my life from childhood through to parenthood.

 

 

When I bought the Bay City Rollers' single Bye Bye Baby in 1975, never would I have imagined that 32 years later my son would be breakdancing to a song co-written by the very same man in 2007, at virtually the same age I was. It was a revelation to me that Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio co-wrote both of these tracks, and that so many happy memories would come flooding back with songs I loved in movies, or from before I was born but played to me by my parents.

 

The foursome playing the band were pitch perfect, with Valli’s distinctive voice incredibly well impersonated, and the show featured classics including Sherry, Let’s Hang On, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, My Eyes Adored You, and December 63 (Oh What a Night!).

 

The choreography and harmonies were spot on, as were the corny jokes which charmed the ladies in the audience. In fact their act is so similar to the real Jersey Boys that Walk Like A Man recently won the National Music Tribute Awards' Best Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons act. If that wasn’t testament enough then an audience full of happy faces singing, dancing and clapping along certainly is.

 

 

 

If you’re partial to a trip down memory lane and a night packed full of feel-good classics, then this is the summer show for you.
