JBB Exclusive Interview with Daniel Robert Sullivan, New ‘Tommy DeVito’ in Jersey Boys Las Vegas!

November 25th, 2014

As reported earlier on JBB, Daniel Robert Sullivan, who WOW’ed audiences in JERSEY BOYS as “Tommy DeVito” in Toronto, begins playing the role in JB Las Vegas TONIGHT!

Just a couple nights ago, while attending Jeff Leibow’s and Deven May’s fantastic final performance, the JBB Tech Half & I had a wonderful surprise visit with Dan, who filled us in on his Vegas-Style ‘Jersey’ adventure.

Dan said, “It was an honor and (admittedly) a little bit of a surprise to get the call asking me about possibly coming to Las Vegas.”

When asked how the JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas opportunity was presented to him, Dan said, “I was asked to come in and meet with Des McAnuff and he said, ‘Dan, I just needed to remind myself what you were like because it’s been so many years since I saw you!’”

Dan continued, “And I said, ‘Well I saw you just a couple months ago in the bathroom at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards (where my wife was a winner again this year), but I thought it was kinda weird to approach you while we were both… you know…doing our thing, but then when I stepped outside I lost you in the crowd.’ That little story made Des laugh, and a couple days later they officially offered me the job.”

We asked Dan how he feels about his new city and what he’s planning to do in Vegas when he gets a little free time. Dan stated, “I’m thrilled. Las Vegas has always been an exciting place to visit, but now I look forward to seeing what the locals do. I drove out here, an epic drive, with my hang glider on my roof. So I’ll be flying above southern Vegas as much as possible, seeing shows, and hiking,” and added, “But for now, I’ve just been working hard in the theatre’s basement getting all the moves back in my head!”

Dan let us in on a little scoop, “Oh! And have you heard about the new line? Yes, yes, they’ve written one new sentence for Tommy DeVito, and it’s a good one!”

Welcome to JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas & break a leg TONIGHT, Dan!

November 23rd, 2014

MAYXXX

The countdown has begun–saying good-bye as Deven May has his final performance as Tommy DeVito in JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas tonight!

Will you ever forget the first time (or 50th?!) time you were in the audience either in the JERSEY BOYS first national tour–or in Vegas–when you heard, “The whole thing started with me, Tommy DeVito…” and Deven May took you on his journey, as the guy who ran the group! The charming “bad boy” DELIVERED!

As Deven takes his final bow tonight, we would like to say thank you & congratulations to Deven for his amazing and totally memorable performances as the one & only Tommy DeVito!

Also wanted to thank Deven for always taking the time with JBB & all of the fans, post-show! We’ve truly appreciated his graciousness & generosity over the years.

All the best to Deven in his upcoming endeavors!

As we get ready to join fellow fans for Jeff Leibow’s final JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas performance tonight, we want to send Jeff a big shout-out for bringing Nick Massi to life on stage for the last seven years! From day one, my friend (to quote one of Nicky’s best lines), Jeff’s “Nick” was absolutely spectacular, first in the JB San Francisco holiday engagement, and of course, since the previews began in Vegas!

Thank you, Jeff–for always being so gracious, supportive, and generous with your time to JBB & all of the JERSEY BOYS fans!

We’ll miss you on stage in JB, but wish you all the best as you move on as director of the NF Foundation!

JERSEY BOYS continues the 20th season of “Broadway Comes to Reno” at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, 100 S. Virginia Street and Mike Sion of the Reno Gazette Journal has a great preview feature with Hayden Milanes!

Like Valli (who continues to perform in his 80s), Milanes is very intense about his work.

“Frankie Valli is a little guy with a big heart and an even bigger voice,” Milanes said by telephone during a tour stop in Sacramento, where “Jersey Boys” is appearing before Reno dates at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, Nov. 25-30. “He’s very passionate about what he does, and you got to have passion to do Frankie justice. I think all four guys (portraying the Four Seasons) have passion in actuality. I’m a very passionate person, parallel to Frankie’s journey.”
