Jersey Boys in Paris Las Vegas – Review

Jersey Boys is currently performing in a new home Le Theatre Des Arts Paris Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. In 2008 the show opened at the Palazzo. After a successful run, the four blue-collar kids packed their bags, hit the road and headed west to Paris Las Vegas. “Jersey Boys” opened at its new location in March.

For those who haven’t seen it, “Jersey Boys” takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. Their captivating journey is told through the sensational cast and the band’s hit songs like “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh, What a Night” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

At the Paris Las Vegas, the show features a slightly bigger stage and a more intimate theater experience than the Palazzo did for both the performers and the audience.

“There isn’t a balcony there so it feels just like one big orchestra section. The crowds have been great, and we can hear them a lot better on stage, which is nice for us,” said Graham Fenton who performs as Valli.

He started performing as an understudy with the Vegas cast when the show opened. From there he was promoted to performing as an alternate for the role of Valli in the touring version of “Jersey Boys.” He rejoined the Vegas cast in September 2011 in his current role.

Fenton said that playing the part of a famous artist who’s still living was both “daunting and intimidating at first.” For his audition he had to sing “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” while Valli and Guadio sat about 10 feet away from him watching and listening to his performance.

Jersey Boys Paris Las Vegas Performances:
Tuesdays – 6:30 PM and 9:30 PM
Wednesday to Friday – 7:00 PM
Saturdays – 6:30 PM and 9:30 PM
Sundays – 7:00 PM
