Vegas “Jersey Boys” to Close

If you’ve ever wanted to see the Las Vegas production of “Jersey Boys,” get your tickets now. After eight years on the Strip, making it the longest-running Broadway production in Vegas history, the show will end its run on September 18 at Paris Las Vegas.

The jukebox musical made its Broadway debut in 2005 with a book by Rick Elice and Marshall Brickman. It tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, a group that became popular in the 1960s. It uses their original music to chronicle the rise and fall of the band.

It was an instant success when it opened at the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas in 2008. Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio and Tommy DeVito — the surviving members of the Four Seasons — attended the opening and gave it their enthusiastic endorsement.

The show moved to the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in 2012, where it has remained until now. By the time the show closes, it will have featured nearly 3,300 performances.

So far there’s been no announcement as to what will take the musical’s place.

The production has promised to honor tickets that have already been purchased for shows after September 18. They’re offering two choices. Fans can either exchange their ticket for an earlier showing of “Jersey Boys,” or they can request a refund. If this applies to you, contact the vendor from which you purchased your tickets.
