'Jersey Boys' In Las Vegas: Two Years Old And Better Than Ever

Last week end Las Vegas wished Jersey Boys a happy second birthday and the Jersey Boys thanked the city with a performance that was brilliant.

It is, of course, the same show that debuted here in 2008. Much of the cast is the same and the music is still fun to revisit. But this time it was different. I was not alone in believing that the production has improved with age. Several people who had seen it before were overheard saying just that. So, what was it?

Could it have been the presence of Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio at the show? Well, it was fun to be able to see them watch the show. Both seemed to be having a great time. But that wasn’t it.

Could it have been the sets and the theater? Certainly the theater is a nice one, built especially in the Palazzo Casino Hotel for this poduction. But there are other, more spectacular theaters in Las Vegas. Here. sometimes-odd sightlines and actors often block other actors but I guess that happens fairly often. And the sets are the same as on Broadway. Very cleverly executed.

Perhaps it was the audience’s enthusiasm. But, no, we’ve all seen shows and films that everyone loved and come away wondering what the fuss was all about.

If you haven’t seen the show, put it on your “must” list. If you have, go again. It is wonderful.
