Theater Review: 'Darling Grenadine' a risky romantic comedy

By Kathryn A. McCord on July 8, 2019 - Northwest Herald

"Nick Cosgrove’s Paul carries a large amount of the show’s pathos on his shoulders and believably grounds the narrative in reality. While Saunders’ and Thomas’ roles get to indulge in occasional flights of fancy on stage, Cosgrove is tasked with the somewhat thankless job of portraying a character who must live firmly in the real world of consequences, which he does with exquisite depth and heart. While he doesn’t have as many opportunities to wow the audience in song as his costars, when he does get the chance, he is sensational."

 

Marriott’s ‘Darling Grenadine’ is shaken, not stirred—and a profound story of addiction and recovery

by Quinn Rigg on July 9, 2019 - Chicagoland Musical Theatre

"Harry’s brother Paul (powerfully portrayed by Nick Cosgrove) struggles to cope with his brother’s addiction...Nick Cosgrove’s performance as Paul (the human) is a perfect foil for Saunders’ Harry. Honest and reserved, Cosgrove sheds light on the world of a grieving family. Through his convincing justifications and desperate pleading, Cosgrove elicits sympathy for a real person struggling to hold on to the things that hurt him."

 

Making Problems Easier to Swallow

by Colin Douglas on July 8, 2019 - Chicago Theatre Review

"Nick Cosgrove is magnificent as Harry’s bartending brother, Paul. Gifted with one of the most sublime voices to be heard on any stage...He’s one of the best reasons for seeing this new show."

“Darling Grenadine”

by Al Bresloff on July 8, 2019 - Around the Town Chicago

"Harry was raised by his best friend Paul (deftly handled by Nick Cosgrove) and his family...Cosgrove as Paul the Human is a delight to watch and his character is a solid one who has stayed with his buddy and taken on whatever he has asked him to be, not for himself, but for Harry and the sake of their friendship."

"The rich and well-defined characters in Harry’s orbit include Paul–a role in which Nick Cosgrove shines—whose family took in Harry and who Paul has treated like an older brother throughout his life."

Marriott's 'Darling Grenadine' serves up bittersweet tale of addiction

A Tale as Old as Time

by Colin Douglas on November 16, 2018 - Chicago Theatre Review

"Cogsworth, the tightly wound head butler-turned-mantle clock, is impeccably played by the gifted Nick Cosgrove. Nick was last seen at Drury Lane in “Joseph…Dreamcoat,” “Rock of Ages” and “Saturday Night Fever,” but his talents have also taken him all over the country. The actor’s found his niche in this production."

Drury Lane's Beauty and the Beast revival is showing its age

by Jack Helbig on December 3, 2019 - Chicago Reader

"The only believable couple in the show is Nick Cosgrove's too tightly wound Cogsworth and Tony Carter's adorably flirtatious Lumiere. Every time they stepped on stage, I found myself wishing I was at a new, as yet unwritten musical, centered on these two."

Don't Miss 'Jersey Boys' at Forrest Theatre

by Sally Friedman on January 3rd, 2014 - SOUTH JERSEY LOCAL NEWS

"Because the role of Frankie Valli is so extraordinarily demanding, there are several actors who sometimes alternate the role. On a recent night, it was the extraordinary main Frankie, Nick Cosgrove, who did the honors, and left absolutely nothing to be desired.  He is not only a consummate actor who handled the pathos of the boys in their rise, and his own personal losses, with a spot-on performance; Cosgrove also nails the difficult vocal demands magnificently."

 

Review: The effervescent 'Jersey Boys'

by Howard Shapiro on December 18th, 2013 - NEWSWORKS

"Lead singer Frankie Valli, is the boyish, deep-eyed Nick Cosgrove, who brings a brooding vulnerability to the role and sings Valli's trademark falsetto beautifully."

Jersey Boys - National Tour - Forrest Theatre

by Neal Zoren on December 16, 2013 - NEALSPAPER

"Nick Cosgrove nails Frankie’s restlessness, wiriness, and innocence in Spring and grows to be a mature, assured Valli by Fall and Winter. It is the most easygoing performance of the four and so well executed, you barely realize how deftly Cosgrove has moved from one phase of Frankie’s life to another until he’s accomplished the transformation."

Music remains vital in ‘Jersey Boys’

by Andrew S. Hughes on November 28, 2013 - SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE

"As in real life, Valli takes center stage in “Jersey Boys,” and Cosgrove does an effective job of showing the character’s progression from innocent, insecure teenager to confident performer and mature adult; he also has a strong falsetto voice that convincingly performs Valli’s vocal parts."

 

'Jersey Boys' at The Hippodrome Theatre

by Amanda Gunther on November 14th, 2013 - DC METRO THEATRE ARTS

"And the title man, Mr. Frankie Valli (Nick Cosgrove) has the voice of a pure angel. The range that he achieves in this production is sublime. Cosgrove’s big vocal moment of unadulterated success comes during “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” where the crowd goes absolutely wild for his pitch perfect crooning. His Jersey accent combined with his crazy splits and dance moves makes Cosgrove a triple threat, but as Valli— with an ‘i’— he weathers the worst season; proverbial winter. His familial struggles weigh heavily into his character and even change the emotional sound of his songs; a stunning transformation to behold. Cosgrove is perfect in this role, really bringing the spark and incredibly unique sound of Frankie Valli to life beyond compare."

 

Theater Review: Jersey Boys
by Chad Young on October 31st, 2013 - NASHVILLE PARENT MAGAZINE

"Dynamic on stage, Cosgrove is a vocal powerhouse who perfectly nails Valli’s signature falsetto range. While it’s hard to select a true favorite because all of the songs are so amazing, there’s no denying that Cosgrove’s solo, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” is a true standout that allows him to showcase his full range of his talent."

 

'Jersey Boys' even better second time around

by Julie McHale on October 24th, 2013 - GMTODAY TIMEOUT

"Cosgrove is a knock-out singer as Valli. He also underlines Valli’s inability to strike a balance in his life."

 

'Jersey Boys' stands out as the musical putting audiences on their feet

by Emily Carl on October 19th, 2013 - THE EXAMINER MILWAUKEE

"Each of the four men suited their roles extremely well, but it was clearly Cosgrove's show as he showed incredible acting and vocal range. His exceptional falsetto combined with charisma and personality drew attention during each of the four seasons. "

Oh what a run - 'Jersey Boys' is most successful show since Palace reopened nine years ago 
by Brynn Mandel on October 15th, 2013 - THE REPUBLICAN AMERICAN

"As the song ended, the audience and the actor shared a moment.  He belted a big, final falsetto note.  One by one, the audience rose until nearly the entire sold-out orchestra and balcony sections stood, clapping and cheering.  Beneath the spotlight, Nick Cosgrove, a Chicago native channeling singing icon Frankie Valli in the touring musical "Jersey Boys," gazed past the fourth wall.  He paused, misty eyed, patting a palm over his heart."

 

Palace's 'Jersey Boys' superb
by Joanne Greco Rochman on October 11th, 2013 - THE REPUBLICAN AMERICAN

"And then there's Nick Cosgrove as Frankie Valli.  Of all the singers playing the role, Cosgrove lives up to Tommy's description of the "voice of an angel."  When you hear Cosgrove's falsetto as crystal clear as the chandeliers in the Palace lobby, you know you're not listening to just another Valli stand-in."

BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS Offers Rare Insight to Four Seasons' Path to the Top
by Paul Batterson on September 19th, 2013 - BROADWAYWORLD

"Finally Valli (Nick Cosgrove, who handles Valli's falsetto flawlessly) relives the final days of the original band and how he and Gaudio strove to keep the band alive to pay off the debts incurred by DeVito."

 

Show review - “Jersey Boys,” through Sept. 8 at the WAC
by Kevin Kinder on September 4th, 2013 - NWA: THE SOURCE

"Cosgroves’ run as Valli was particularly wonderful, and not just for his vocal performance, which accurately scrapes the hard-to-fathom highs and power of Valli’s legendary falsetto. His takes on Valli’s stubborness, and his failings outside of the structure of the band, pull audience members into uncomfortable locations."

Can't take my eyes off of Jersey Boys at the Capitol Theatre
By Callie Oppedisano on June 7th, 2013 - UTAH THEATRE BLOGGERS

"Finally, the voice of the Four Seasons, Frankie Valli narrates the final leg of the show. Played by Nick Cosgrove, who gives an impressive transformation of Valli from youthfulness to maturity, Valli’s story perhaps best communicates the heartbreak of lost relationships among families at home and families on the road. So, too, however Cosgrove fully imparts Valli’s love of the music, a theme at the core of Jersey Boys. Cosgrove carries the major burden as Valli, who had one of the most distinct voices of the twentieth century, but he does so ably, imparting the quality of Valli’s signature intonation without trying to mimic exactly."

 

'Jersey Boys' features four quality leads
By Erica Hansen on June 6th, 2013 - DESERET NEWS

"Nick Cosgrove tips his hat beautifully to the recognizable falsetto sound of Valli. He soars on the top notes but really stands out with the softer “My Eyes Adored You” and “Fallen Angel.” With more than 30 songs in the show and Cosgrove singing the lead on most, it’s no small task to tackle that music, eight shows a week. And he appears to be loving every minute of it."

By QSaltLake Staff on June 6th, 2013 - GAY SALT LAKE

"While the production was very well executed and nary was a note missed, it was Cosgrove as Frankie Valli that stole the show at Salt Lake City’s opening night of the three-week stay. He brought down the house imitating the distinct falsetto of Valli and harmonized perfectly with the other singers. "

Jersey Boys Comes Roaring Back to San Francisco
by Richard Connema on March 19th, 2013 - SF TALKIN BROADWAY

"However, the real source of the show's power is the songs, especially with the wailing falsetto voice of Nick Cosgrove as Frankie Valli. His voice has a powerful effect on the ballads "My Eyes Adored You" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You." He is energetic and dedicated and he handles the demands of the show excitingly."

Jersey Boys in San Francisco
by Diana Vergara on March 15th, 2013 - CALTV ENTERTAINMENT

"Nick Cosgrove rightfully cast as Frankie Valli successfully portrays the youth and innocence of a teenage Frankie as his transitions into a big star. The actor surpassed his natural “youngish” look on stage as he transforms into an older Frankie Valli fruitfully."

 

Those Boys from Jersey Man, Can They Sing! JERSEY BOYS Rocks the Curran Theatre

by Linda Hodges on March 15th, 2013 - BWW SAN FRANCISCO

"Cosgrove dives right into the Frankie Valli falsetto, making the trip down memory lane feel like it was just yesterday. He imbibes his character with heart which is a good thing because Frankie goes through the most changes in the show. He starts out as a young teenager who still has a curfew, and before you know it he's married with kids of his own."

"One of the band’s most distinguished aspects was lead singer Frankie Valli’s three-octave range — an extremely difficult feat to match.

by Rick Pender on December 1st, 2012 - CITYBEAT

"As Valli, Nick Cosgrove has the requisite three-octave vocal range to hit the high notes. He has a wonderfully smooth delivery (his rendition of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” will melt a lot of hearts), as well as the intense physical presence (he even does the splits) that marked Valli as the group’s step-out star."

 

Musical Review: Jersey Boys
by Leah Zipperstein on December 1st, 2012 - iSPYCINCY

"Now let’s get to Frankie, who, as in the real story, is also the star of the show. Portrayed by Nick Cosgrove, there’s no denying his voice is special. He’s got three octaves of range that make the girls swoon and the guys jealous. When Cosgrove is tasked to belt out “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” the audience overflows in applause because it is – pun intended – just too good to be true. Cosgrove teamed with the rest of this stellar cast are nothing short of pitch perfect."

'Jersey Boys' a look behind the limelight 
by Tracy Poindexter-Canton on October 22nd, 2012 - THE SPOKESMAN REVIEW

"As Valli and DeVito, Cosgrove and Gardiner provide impactful narrations as polar opposites. Valli is mature, loyal and remorseful, while DeVito is ruthless, self-serving and destructive. Cosgrove embodies Valli’s petite stature and signature falsetto, greatly complemented by the satiny baritone, bass and tenor vocals of Gardiner, Lomenda and Jacoby."

 

Jersey Boys musical a polished package full of humour, fun
by Stephanie McKay on October 1st, 2012 - THE STARPHOENIX

"Nick Cosgrove stars as Valli and his voice is the star of the show. The singer's range is stunning and he's perfected that falsetto that made Valli famous. It's great to have the story, but with Cosgrove at the helm the show could get away with doing nothing more than covering these classic songs."

Jersey Boys at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
by Laura Murray on September 6th, 2012 - VANCOUVER PUBLIC RELATIONS

"At the helm, in the role of Frankie Valli, is the immensely gifted young performer Nick Cosgrove. Having completed a mandatory six weeks of training at ‘Camp Frankie,’ he absolutely inhabits the part. With his clear-as-a-bell tone and chill-inducing falsetto, one could easily forget they were watching a play and not the Frankie Valli."

 

Jersey Boys - the rise and fall of a pop sensation
by Anna Boroweicki on August 22nd, 2012 - ST. ALBERT GAZETTE

"In this Broadway touring production, Nick Cosgrove, a young star in the making, plays Frankie Valli, the superstar hero whose falsetto took The Four Seasons into the big time.  At last Friday night’s production, the crowd completely bought Cosgrove as Valli from his early teen years landing a spot with a band to his middle-age years when he tragically loses his daughter to a drug overdose.  His performance was so authentic the audience forgot Cosgrove wasn’t Valli. And when he sang the confection Sherry and his trademark song, the 1967 lounge ballad Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, the crowd went wild."

 

Jersey Boys: Oh What A Night!
by Colin Maclean on August 17th, 2012 - EDMONTON SUN

"The show stands or falls on the performances of the four actors who play the unreformed street hood Tommy DeVito (John Gardiner), the gifted songwriter Bob Gaudio (Preston Truman Boyd — good singer/great actor), Nick Massi — always the outsider (Michael Lomenda) and Frankie Valli (Nick Cosgrove — impressive with a soaring falsetto voice). They are outstanding, channeling The Four Seasons but in the theatrical version they can move beyond the limited sound of the records of the day to create thrilling builds and ringing chords."
