Jersey Boys Vegas’ Lorraine: Carly Thomas-Smith

August 25th, 2009

Carly Thomas-Smith Las Vegas Sun’s Jerry Fink has a feature on the newest member of the Vegas JERSEY BOYS cast, Carly Thomas-Smith, Carly Thomas-Smith, who joined the cast of the bio-musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in April, about the time it reached its one-year milestone at the Palazzo. She plays Valli’s girlfriend, Lorraine.

It’s the second Vegas production for Thomas, who also was in the cast of the Queen-inspired “We Will Rock You.”

The two experiences have given her a taste of the highs and lows of performing in the Entertainment Capital.

“Jersey Boys” remains one of the hottest shows in town, so popular it should have legs for years. “We Will Rock You” barely made it a year before limping out of Paris Las Vegas in November 2005.

“That was one of the first musical theater pieces to come to Vegas,” says Thomas, a native of the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. “We were breaking new ground at that point.”

Vegas audiences are unpredictable; audiences will laugh at different things on different nights.

“They’re unlike any other audience,” Thomas says. “Totally unpredictable … which makes it very exciting.”
