Top-Notch “Jersey Boys” to Close at Paris Las Vegas

The stand-out, Broadway-style musical, “Jersey Boys,” has announced it will close at Paris Las Vegas on Sep. 18, 2016.

The closure of “Jersey Boys” means Las Vegas will soon have approximately 37% less legit musical theater, reflecting a worldwide trend of people sort of wanting there to be less musical theater, even when it’s pretty good.

Three months notice means you can still catch this show before it shutters. Get on that, already.

“Jersey Boys,” which features a fictionalized account of the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, closes after an impressive run of nearly 3,300 performances.

That’s 23 years in Las Vegas show years.

On March 21, 2013, “Jersey Boys” celebrated its fifth anniversary in Las Vegas. Four Seasons members Bob Gaudio and Frankie Valli were on-hand, too.

Yes, the actual Frankie Valli. And, yes, he’s still alive.

Ticket sales for “Jersey Boys” have flagged in recent months, despite being a stand-out among shows on the Las Vegas Strip. Ultimately, it’s just run its course after eight years.

Caesars Entertainment, which owns Paris Las Vegas, hasn’t announced what’s next for the hotel’s Le Theatre des Arts, other than the fact it will soon have fewer of Le Four Seasons.
