JB Toronto’s Adrian Marchuk Playing ‘Frankie’ in Vegas through Jan. 16

Adrian Marchuk

Toronto Star’s Theatre Critic Richard Ouzounian has some news about JERSEY BOYS former “Frankie” alternate Adrian Marchuk!

Who says Las Vegas doesn’t have a heart?

My recent stay here over New Year’s proved that this is a great place to reinvent yourself, because the crowds keep changing and everybody’s reputation is only as good as their last hand.

Start with Adrian Marchuk. The talented young performer spent nearly two years as the alternate Frankie Valli in the Toronto production of Jersey Boys, performing usually only twice a week.

But when the show closed in August, Marchuk probably thought he had sung his last chorus of “Big Girls Don’t Cry” for a while.

Wrong. There’s a whole network of Jersey Boys companies around the world and they’re always looking for guys who know how to fill the leading roles.

So an invitation came to Marchuk, asking him to pop down into the hit production that’s packing The Venetian [Palazzo] hotel here. He’ll be playing Frankie for a few weeks and then, who knows?

Below is Adrian’s JB Vegas Schedule (while Rick Faugno is on vacation):
Monday: 7:00PM
Tuesday: 7:00PM
Saturday: 6:30PM
Sunday: 3:00PM
