Rick Faungo originated the role of Frankie Valli in the Vegas production of the Tony winning smash-hit musical (LINK)Jersey Boys(END LINK), and now the multitalented song and dance man has his own Las Vegas show where he showcases all of his formidable skills.
Faungo already had a wildly successful run with his first one-man show, Songs My Idols Sang (and Danced), and his new show is even more expansive and musically eclectic. In Body and Soul, Faungo covers a hugely diverse mix of styles and sounds as he takes the audience on a fast-paced and electrifying journey through musical history. Faungo sings and dances his way through classics from the world of rock, soul, pop, funk, jazz, Latin and more, mixing genres effortlessly and infusing each and every song with his own personal flair.
Faungo’s show was inspired by and carries on the tradition of old-school Vegas performers like Sammy Davis Jr., who could deliver a full package of entertainment, mixing song, dance and witty stage banter without losing energy for one beat. Faungo has gained a huge and loyal following after starring in Jersey Boys for half a decade, and the multitalented entertainer’s one-man show will surely gain him a legion of new fans.
Rick Faungo’s career is on the rise, as the song and dance-man starred in a feature film right before his one man show opened to rave reviews and wild applause. Body and Soul is an old-school entertainment with a modern energy that mixes together an eclectic group of musical genres, all tied together by the talent and charisma of rising star Rick Faungo.
