On Friday, August 6, Larry King and wife Shawn King attended a performance of JERSEY BOYS at the Palazzo in Las Vegas and stopped backstage thereafter to celebrate. BroadwayWorld brings you coverage of the Kings with the 'BOYS' below!
The musical phenomenon 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 such hits as "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," "Oh, What a Night" and many more. Presented in Las Vegas in a unique, custom-built theatre, Jersey Boys at The Palazzo is the same production fans all over the world have come to know and love.
Jersey Boys, which opened on Broadway to rave reviews on November 6, 2005, continues to be completely sold out and the hottest ticket on the Great White Way. Jersey Boys received the 2006 Tony Award® for Best Musical and the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Recording; that recording was certified Gold by the RIAA in February, and is regularly found at the top of the Billboard chart of best-selling show CDs.
