It is one of Vegas’ greatest shows. Las Vegas, as our readers know, has an incredible number of shows at any given time. Some stay for long periods of time and become staples, like Jubilee did for decades. Then, there are shows that come and go. One show, one of the best I’ve seen in recent times is Jersey Boys.

Those who have not seen this wonderful musical/drama better hurry. The Las Vegas Review Journal reported today that the long running Jersey Boys will close down September 18th. This came as a shock to the cast and crew. The article included this quote from Michael David, president of Dodger Theatricals:

“It’s been a remarkable run and we couldn’t be more proud of how both Las Vegas locals and visitors have embraced ‘Jersey Boys,’” Michael David, president of Dodger Theatricals, said in a statement. “The cast and crew gave their all every night, and the audiences returned that energy without fail.”

Travis Cloer, who has been with the show since it played at the Pallazz0, said, according to the Las Vegas Sun:

“This is sad news, but that’s showbiz … thank God for a three-month notice,” Thompson said via text message. “I am hoping I can find something that will keep me in Vegas, where my heart is!”

Over its run, Jersey Boys completed 3300 performances. It was a record breaker in comparison to the various Broadway to Vegas shows that have opened there. According to reports the show did show some declining sales and it is unclear at this point exactly why the powers that be decided to cut bait at this point in time.

The show headlined at the Paris in the 1500 seat theater. If you do miss the Vegas edition of Jersey Boys it is still running on Broadway. But, if you are in Vegas or planning to go put the wonderful show on your list of things to do.
