JERSEY BOYS and THE LAST SHIP Come Together to Support New York Cares Coat Drive and City Harvest

December 19th, 2014

From BroadwayWorld.com: Broadway’s JERSEY BOYS and THE LAST SHIP unite to help the 26th Annual New York Cares Coat Drive and City Harvest on Saturday, December 20 at 7:45pm with “Saturday Night Scream Christmas Carols,” an opportunity for fans and friends of both shows to donate a coat or canned goods and listen to the casts sing Christmas Carols on 52nd Street in front of the August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd Street) and Neil Simon Theatre (250 West 52nd Street).

The brain child of JERSEY BOYS cast member Peter Gregus, “‘Saturday Night Scream Christmas Carols’ is a way to expand on the joyous fun we have every week here on 52nd Street with our long-time tradition of ‘Saturday Night Scream.’ The casts of Jersey Boys and The Last Ship combine forces to help the New York Cares Coat Drive and City Harvest. We will raise our voices together with some good old fashioned Christmas Carols and hope that our friends and fans show up with a coat or canned goods to donate while we sing. It’s a win-win. We get to sing Christmas carols, and the fans get to hear us sing them. And we’re helping others less fortunate during the holidays,” said Gregus.

Sting, who wrote the score for THE LAST SHIP and is currently appearing on stage in the musical, is expected to appear with members of the SHIP company at this event.

This year, during the 26th annual New York Cares Coat Drive, the organization has received more than 100,000 coat requests for New Yorkers in need. Donations have fallen far short of these requests. If individuals and companies can’t come out to “Saturday Night Scream Christmas Carols,” they can donate coats until December 31, 2014. To find a drop off location, visit www.newyorkcares.org

All over the city, New Yorkers help feed their hungry neighbors, by organizing food drives in their schools, apartment buildings, businesses and places of worship. To find a drop off location, visit http://www.cityharvest.org/donate-food/food-drives

Jersey Boys Natl Tour Marvelous at Morrison Center in Boise!

December 5th, 2014

JB national tour is rocking the audience’s (and critic’s) world in Boise. Check out an excerpt of Dana Oland’s review in the Idaho Statesman:

Dromard plays the delightfully charming “Goodfellas”-esque guitarist and group founder Tommy DeVito, who in the end torpedoes the group’s success. Hines is striking and sweetly funny as bass player and singer Nick Massi. Seeley is boyishly energetic as keyboardist and songwriter Bob Gaudio, and Milanes is sincere and sympathetic as lead singer Valli.

Supported by an excellent ensemble (Barry Anderson as producer Bob Crewe, especially), dancers, singers and a tight group of backstage musicians, these Jersey Boys dance and sing as well – if not better – than the original four. Milanes reaches Valli’s three-octave range with a cleaner, clearer tone.

Jersey Boys Natl Tour Plays Boise Tonight through 12/7; Check Out Interview with @HaydenMilanes in Idaho Statesman!

JERSEY BOYS national tour is playing Boise, Idaho at the Morrison Center tonight through Sunday, 12/7. Dana Oland of the Idaho Statesman has a terrific interview with Hayden Milanes. Check out a preview below:

Milanes shares the Valli role with an alternate, Shaun Taylor-Corbett. On his show days, Milanes keeps it low key. He eats clean – that means little or no dairy – gets plenty of rest and works to stay healthy, he says. That’s the best way to ensure consistency.

“You have to know you can hit it out of the park every night,” he says. “We have 2,000 people each night who are expecting me to sound like Frankie Valli.

That’s not an easy mantle to carry.

“When I go out there playing Frankie, the attention and recognition is for him,” Milanes says. “I’m playing a guy who has made a great name for himself and they’re applauding me, but it is really borrowed glory. The reality is people come to see Frankie, not me.”

It’s a bit daunting and humbling, he says: “It helps me keep my ego in check.”

Photo/Video Flashback: Fans Say Goodbye to Jeff Leibow & Deven May at Jersey Boys Las Vegas, 11/23/14

December 1st, 2014

Hope Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, along with Bob Gaudio, Judy Parker, and the late Bob Crewe won’t mind if I use some of the greatest lines from a certain show and lyrics from the greatest songs of all time, but it’s the only way I can capture the evening of Sunday, November 23, 2014–as Jeff Leibow performed for the final time as Nick Massi and Deven May said goodbye to the role of Tommy DeVito in JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas.

Sometimes it just clicks with people–and the audience has always clicked with Jeff and Deven in their respective roles on stage! Last Sunday night, in particular, the audience not only clicked, the place came apart, just like at the Roostertail!

I’m certain everyone in the audience was asking, “Why does everybody leave?”

Shout-outs not only to Jeff and Deven, on their final fantastic performance, but major kudos to the entire JB Vegas cast on taking the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions, memories, and of course, the music!

They ask us, what was the high point–the constant interruptions of applause; the standing ovations after “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and the “Who Loves You” finale…It was all great, but look at me, I’m tearing up–thinking back to that magical evening…

I’d like to work my way back to the second row of the Paris Theatre, walk like a man, fast as I can, and relive that night one more time. As I recall it ended much too soon!

All the best to Jeff Leibow & Deven May in their new endeavors!

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

November 25th, 2014
Daniel Robert Sullivan

Daniel Robert Sullivan

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!
