What the press is saying about
OVER THE BOARDWALK

“{Behan} focused on complex characters,
a solid story and a positive message.”

Gretchen Van Benthysen, The Asbury Park Press

“Folks looking to head out for some good entertainment
last weekend did not have to travel to Atlantic City or New York City to see a show as Over The Boardwalk made its grand debut at the Belmar Summer Theater. …Many in attendance cheered and deemed it one of the best shows they had seen in quite some time.”

Zach Levine, The Coast Star

"Behan came up with a new musical that captures the enthusiasm and energy of a show like 'Grease' with a nostalgic hint of a show like 'Happy Days,' while tackling a current issue like the impending demolition of beach boardwalk amusement piers."
Times Community Newspaper

"The music is upbeat, pre-Beatles pop, with choreography based on the "freestyle" dance crazes, such as the twist, that were popular here before the British invasion of rock groups.
The Washington Post

"The musical is full of colorful characters inspired by the Jersey Shore"
The Asbury Park Press

William Pastore, Cape Cod, Mass.
