Wider Stage at Paris Las Vegas Allows Jersey Boys Cast to ROCK!

March 7th, 2012

John Katsilometes has a fantastic piece on Paris Las Vegas–the new home of JERSEY BOYS! Here’s a sneak peak:

In its new Las Vegas venue, the company is finding a different sort of wide appeal — that of a physically wider stage on which to rock ’n’ roll.

Having spent the first 3½ years of its Las Vegas run at the Palazzo, the musical adaptation of the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons has been one of the city’s top productions. That affiliation ended in December, and the show reopened at the Paris Theatre at Paris Las Vegas on Tuesda night.

The most obvious difference in the two venues is that the Paris Theatre is wider than the show’s former home at the Palazzo. It’s just 12 feet of added space but represents a significant piece of territory in a show where every move and moment is expertly choreographed.

The difference?

“We can stand wider,” says Deven May, who has played Tommy DeVito since the show opened in Las Vegas in May 2008. “Things have moved out because it’s such a wide seating area, and we can move out a little, too.”
