  6. Angel, mom Mila, many of the other West Coast fans, and I had a wonderful brunch this morning, Rick, and recollected how Angel and I first met over the Blog. Angel started writing all these “Rick Faugno superlatives” on the Blog, and I “admonished” her for jumping to conclusions.

    Mila told me today that they told you about our “confrontation” and, true to your great humble demeanor, you told Mila and Angel, “Nah, ya shouldn’t have told him I was that good…ya shoulda just said I was OK.” Well, man, after seeing you in Vegas, you are THAT good. Angel and Mila, I admit defeat and stand corrected. (And Gary, I apologize for doubting you too….)

    It was also so, so kind of you to acknowledge on “Jersey Boys” radio the wonderful party given by the de facto CEO’s of the Jersey Boys Fan Club, Irene and Buz Eizen on the opening night of previews. Irene and Buz do so much that is unheralded, it is great to see them get some well-deserved thanks and recognition. And it was a marvelous party that will remain with all of us for the rest of our lives!! Thank you, Rick.

  7. Hello Rick,

    You have gone a long, long way from when we first met you in June of 2007 and I am so happy and proud that we put our faith in you. Now I am sure you have accumulated a lot of fans….and “Y” not ? ? ? You have such an outstanding talent and you truly deserve all the admiration, for all your hard work.

    More power to you and Joyce ! ! !

  8. Yeah, Rick!! Howard is right. All us West Coasters have grown to love you since you first performed in San Francisco. It seems so long ago. You really have taken on this difficult role and done a tremendous job. Hope to see you soon again.

  9. You are the first “Frankie” that we ever saw in Los Angeles, last year in June. All the rest of the “Frankies” always paled in comparison. Because of you, Erich Bergen and Deven May.. our family has seen Jersey Boys 16 more times. I personally have seen it 22 more times. In Chicago, San Franciso, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Costa Mesa, San Diego, Seattle…you were always my favorite. We are seeing you again this Friday Night, June 6th and I am thrilled again. Thanks so much, you are so talented……

  10. I was so glad for the chance to see Rick the first night that JB took the Vegas stage, back at the beginning of April. He was simply wonderful, as was the rest of the cast and very charming to fans afterwards! I plan to fly back to Vegas before the end of the year; it was really a performance to remember.

  13. Rebecca, you can probably write to the theatre/hotel and ask them to send you a signed one.
