The Jersey Boys Las Vegas Reviews
50'S AND 60'S BROADWAY Oct 12, 2008
This show is a regular headliner at the PALAZZO HOTEL. my mum wanted to see this show. i was partial to it. i have hear good reviews that i was nudged to see it. this is the story about frankie valli and the four seasons.
Jersey Boys at the Palazzo is a cinematic journey through the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. Their voices fit together in perfect harmony yet each of The Four Seasons had a distinctly different personality that becomes apparent as they take turns telling their side of the story.
The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being famous. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through sensational performances and some of the band’s hit songs like “Big Girls Don't Cry," “Sherry,” "Oh, What a Night" and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”
“We put Jersey on the map,” says DeVito, played by Jeremy Kuschnier, who is the first storyteller for the evening. “Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here.”
As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.
DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound. His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio, played by Erich Bergen, and the rest of the band.
It ends with each band member shares what have they been doing since and currently doing. It has many funny moments. I would recommend this show. however, the seats are not comfy. i kept on adjusting. There were many empty seats. Mum and i move 2 rows down to put our feet up and stretch out.
