While Robin Leach is on vacation, the Vegas DeLuxe blog will be featuring celebrity guest columnists. Today, Deven May provides a little glimpse into his life in Sin City! Here’s a preview:

What it’s like backstage before starting Jersey Boys
It’s 6:30 p.m., and the half hour has just been called, meaning Jersey Boys is about to rekindle days gone by for some 1,700 audience members at the Palazzo (the show is dark Wednesdays). It’s amazing and exciting to hear the roar of the crowd before we start the show. Clapping, whistles, the sounds of anxious patrons ready for a good time. I just hope they’re not expecting something like Thunder From Down Under. Every night, it’s a rush to star in this show and tell the unknown tale of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

The best part of being cast in the Las Vegas company
One of the best things about playing Tommy DeVito in Las Vegas is getting to hang with the real Tommy DeVito — talk about a history lesson! I had the pleasure of going to lunch with Tommy and former Four Season band mate Joe Long. It was like the Joe and Tommy Show. They were cutting up, hitting on girls, and in case you’re wondering, yes, Tommy still has it. Good times. Getting to meet celebrities also is a hoot. We have met sports greats like Pete Rose, sirens of country music like Carrie Underwood, and everyone in between. It’s a real treat to get to sit down and chat with them about, well, anything they want really. Let’s just say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas … oh, yes.

  2. Will Devon continue as Tommy for the next few months? I’ve seen a couple of Tommy’s and he is by far the best. I would come to LV to see him as Tommy again. November or January. Does anyone know?

  4. You are the best Tommy. Have seen “The Jersey Boys” three times in the last six months, twice with you as Tommy. You are the best. The last show wasn’t the same without you.

  5. Devon, you are gorgeous! Flew in from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to see Jersey Boys and would see it over and over, but only if you were playing the role of Tommy. I thought I was too old to have a “crush” until I saw you!

    Lucky me…….had front row, center seats!
