The cast and crew of Jersey Boys Las Vegas took part in Carmine’s “Friends and Family” meals over the weekend before the famed New York family style eatery opens today inside The Forum Shops at Caesars.
Carmine’s Times Square is a longtime favorite with the New York theater crowd, so the actors were feeling right at home.
Among those spotted at the 750- seat, two-level restaurant were cast members who brought spouses, in-laws and children including Jeff Leibow (who portrays Nick Massi); Joe Barbara (Gyp DeCarlo); Aaron DeJesus (Joe Pesci); Jason Martinez (Norm Waxman); Buck Hujabre (Hank Majewski) and Mike Erickson (Billy Dixon).
Hujabe, Leibow and DeJesus snapped a photo while sending a message to their friend Joseph Leo Bwarie who opened the Jersey Boys Las Vegas show in 2007 and will soon be portraying the lead role of Frankie Valli on Broadway, while Barbara enlisted his three hungry sons to help finish off the Titanic ice cream dessert.
Carmine’s has a history with Jersey Boys having hosted opening night parties for the show’s touring company at its Washington DC location as well as several cast events at the Times Square restaurant.
