JB Vegas AnniversaryEmma Trotter of Las Vegas Magazine (Photo Credit: Christopher DeVargas) has a fabulous feature on JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas! On May 3, the megahit show will be celebrating its third anniversary on The Strip at the Palazzo Resort and Casino.

On April 15, the core cast of Jersey Boys gathered in the theater that bears their name at The Palazzo for a fashion shoot. But these boys weren’t playing the roles of Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. For the first time, they were shooting as themselves—Rick Faugno, Travis Cloer, Peter Saide, Deven May and Jeff Leibow—suited up in clothing by Billionaire Italian Couture and Canali.

The Las Vegas Magazine cover shoot was just part of the celebration of the Vegas show’s anniversary on May 3. Three years ago, Vegas watched and waited as the city welcomed a promising Broadway smash that had been über-successful in cities nationwide—the true story of four blue-collar boys triumphing over obstacles of small-town living and achieving big-time dreams of musical fame. Who knew then how perfect Jersey Boys would fit in? Now celebrated as one of the must-see productions on the Strip, the musical combines elements of Broadway-trained performers, a little comedy and a big story of how the Four Seasons rose to greatness. One cast member who is still in awe of the show’s smashing success is Faugno, one of the two actors who plays Valli. “I can’t believe it has been three years already,” he said. “That’s wild. I was playing the opening night.”
