“We are both honored and thrilled for JERSEY BOYS to have become the longest-running Broadway production in Las Vegas,” said Michael David, President of Dodger Theatricals. “We credit this achievement to those in the Las Vegas community and beyond who have continued to show the utmost support for this production, and we are proud to have the opportunity to express our gratitude through partnerships with such deserving charitable organizations.”
Each season, the cast and crew of JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas will perform an act of kindness that positively impacts and contributes to the greater good of the Las Vegas community. JERSEY BOYS will kick off the year-long campaign for 2015 by partnering with Opportunity Village for the winter season initiative and will continue on with collaborations with Three Square Food Bank for spring, HELP of Southern Nevada for summer, and will conclude with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada for fall. Acts of kindness will include campus service visits, food drives, workshops and more.
The smash-hit production, JERSEY BOYS, made its Las Vegas debut in May 2008 at The Palazzo prior to moving to its current home at the Paris Las Vegas. JERSEY BOYS became the longest-running Broadway production on the Las Vegas Strip in fall 2014, surpassing notable shows such as PHANTOM-THE LAS VEGAS SPECTACULAR and MAMMA MIA! The production will celebrate its seventh anniversary this spring.
JERSEY BOYS is the #1 Rated Show in Las Vegas and the “Must see show of the year!” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The musical phenomenon JERSEY BOYS, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons at Paris Las Vegas is the runaway hit that has taken Las Vegas by storm. JERSEY BOYS is the story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide - all before they were thirty. The show features hits such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)” and many more.
