News from BroadwayWorld.com:

Original Jersey Boy Donnie Kehr makes his return to the stage in Vegas at the Paris Hotel playing Gyp DeCarlo in JERSEY BOYS, a role he originally created for the premiere. He will be playing a limited engagement, Jan. 12-March 6.

For veteran Broadway actor Donnie Kehr, JERSEY BOYS has been an interesting and enviable ride. He appeared in the very first production of the show in La Jolla, under the direction of Des McAnuff, where he originated the role of Gyp DeCarlo.

He then created the role of Norma Waxman in the original Broadway cast. He also appeared as Waxman in last year’s film of the hit show, directed by Clint Eastwood and released via Warner Brothers.

Kehr, who has appeared in such Broadway musicals as BILLY ELLIOT, The Who’s TOMMY, Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA, THE HUMAN COMEDY and others, began ROCKERS ON BROADWAY (with Pete Townsend in 1993); the annual sold-out charity concert where performers from the Great White Way appear and have a chance to rock-out. They have honored such performers as Debbie Gibson, Monkee-Micky Dolenz; radio-personality-Bruce Morrow, Rupert Holmes, Paul Williams and Frankie Valli and many others.

Kehr, also fronts a performing act called Donnie Kehr’s Rockin’ Dueling Pianos. His coming back to Vegas, at The Paris, this is a homecoming of sorts. “I actually debuted Dueling Pianos here at The Paris in 2004. I love Vegas and the variety of acts they have here right now is top-shelf. To return to Jersey Boys in Vegas, is a perfect way to start the New Year.”

Welcome and break a leg, Donnie!
