 Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys
The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito, who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling music groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is an experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

Especially if you grew up when the 4-Seasons had songs at the top of the charts, you will love this show.

We’re about as indecisive as anyone else on this planet. Like come on, how can you make a decision on which show to see when there are a bazillion of them in Las Vegas? We ask ourselves every time, are we feeling lovey dovey or do we want to go to that rock metal concert down the street? Luckily, we found the solution to all our indecisive problems. V – The Ultimate Variety show gives you every entertainment element packed into one, like a buffet of talent, if you will.And in the true spirit of variety, the production swaps out different performers each night. So who knows if you’ll get street dancer, Turf if you go on a Tuesday? You might end up with Merlin the Magician instead. Talking about the mystery of it all gives us that feeling of truly living on the edge. But if you’re more of a person that needs to be in the know, we’ll give you the deets.There’s the Skating Aratas, a husband and wife duo that pull out the death-defying stunts to get your blood pumping. And then there’s a former rhythmic gymnastics Olympian, Yeroffyeva which will have you in awe with the beauty of her moves. Next up, you might find your way to the streets with Turf, the street dancer who will get the crowd up and moving with his music. Or maybe The Crazy Gauchos will come out with a drum routine you’ll fall in love with.It doesn’t matter which acts come out from behind the curtain, all of them have great talent you can’t help but get googly eyed over all of them. Problem solved indecisive people, this is the Las Vegas show you need to see.

Great Show!!
PostedSeptember 7, 2013
The actors, the show was great! The show room was very small, the area for such GOOD performers was very small, the sound system could have been better, probably if they had done the show in a bigger show room.
Under the circumstances of a small show room, these guys are GREAT!
I do recommend it.

A gigantic baby? A gigantic, inflatable snail? OK, we slurped down our drinks before they could be spiked so, what gives with the hallucinations? Well, the catch is that there is no catch – you’re just at a Cirque du Soleil show and a damn good one at that. Like fine art, the storyline of Mystère at Treasure Island is left up to individual interpretation. But one thing about this production is for sure: this show, which also happens to be the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas, is so entertaining you’ll want to stay for an encore after the final bow.Oh, and speaking of the performers, we always wonder whether or not these crazy-talented people are even human. They’re like the ultimate example of “don’t try this at home.” They fly, they muscle up poles like tree frogs and make us feel pretty damn bad about not being able to touch our toes. They’re friggin’ amazing, and they have no fear and apparently no bones in their super-bendy bodies.Performing stunts like quadruple flips off see-saws and other sick tricks we average folk couldn’t even dream up if we tried, this show is so unreal you just kinda have to let it happen. Emphasizing family-friendly, awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, Mystère embraces all the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production one of the OG companies on the Las Vegas Strip.
