Rick FaugnoFrom BroadwayWorld.com: Rick Faugno, who was named “Best Singer” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal staff in this year’s “Best of Las Vegas” poll based on his current role as Frankie Valli in JERSEY BOYS, will debut his first-ever solo performance for an afternoon of “Songs My Idols Sang (And Danced)” on Sunday, Aug, 23, at 3 p.m. at the South Point Casino Showroom.

“Songs My Idols Sang (And Danced)” is based on Faugno’s life story in show business, and how he got to where he is today with the love and support of his family and many others while growing up in New Jersey, on to Broadway and to the Las Vegas Strip. He spent the last several months creating the show and collaborating with his long-time love Joyce Chittick, a fellow Broadway performer, “Jersey Boys” alum, and choreographer, and with his musical director Keith Thompson, also a colleague of “Jersey Boys.”

“This show is a tribute to the people in my life and career who’ve supported me in everything that I ever wanted to do – from my parents and grandmother, to my dance teacher, to my girlfriend and soul mate Joyce, and to the icons of song and dance who I’ve looked up to since I was as a kid,” said Faugno.

The 80-minute musical showcase will feature a seven-piece band with some of the best musicians from the Strip, and will include Faugno’s performances of “Embraceable You,” “Fly Me To The Moon,” “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” “Cheek To Cheek,” and “Mr. Bojangles,” among others.

Tickets are priced at $20, $25 and $30 and can be purchased online at www.southpointcasino.com, at the South Point Box Office located at 9777 Las Vegas Boulevard South, or by phone (702) 797-8055 or (866) 796-7111.
