A Review: Paul Fracassi’s New Show, “Staying Alive” A Tribute to the Bee Gees
Well, he’s done it again folks! Paul Fracassi’s new show at The Red Room is a hit! With two standing ovations and enthusiastic applause throughout the performance, Paul entertained us with his outstanding tribute to the music of the Bee Gees.
Returning to Act II for his 4th year, Paul Fracassi is known as the “Jersey Kid” from Toronto. He first gained notoriety as a finalist on the talent show, “Canadian Idol” and during his residency in the PV entertainment scene has sold more tickets than any other performer in Vallarta history. Audiences love his incredible shows, “Legends of the 50’s and 60’s” and “Walk Like a Man,” a special tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. These shows continue to be popular and the new Bee Gees tribute is a winner as well!
As this wonderful new show starts, we see two beautiful, dancing “Disco Girls” (Natalie Lily and Camila Quinto) as Paul jumps to the stage in a sleek white suit and disco shirt reminiscent of John Travolta and the “Staying Alive” theme. To the audience’s delight, he begins singing, the Bee Gee’s hit, “You Should Be Dancing.” On the background video screen, images of “ Saturday Night Fever” flash by as we thrill to Paul’s enjoyable vocals.
Make no mistake, this show is all about the fabulous disco music that helped make the Bee Gees an international music sensation! Backed up by his “Disco Girls” and Cesar Medina on guitar and vocals, each song was beautiful delivered. We heard favorites like “Jive Talking,” “Massachusetts,” “To Love Somebody” and “I’ve Got to Get a Message to You.” Paul absolutely inspired the audience with numbers like, “Night Fever,” “More Than A Woman” and “How Deep is Your Love.” He brilliantly performed “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?” And his upbeat, “Nights on Broadway” was amazing!
Paul concluded his new show with “It’s Only Words,” but was urged back on stage for an encore with another standing ovation and thunderous applause. And what could be more perfect, than to end the show with “Staying Alive,” the signature song of the disco era! You can expect to be inspired, entertained and absolutely delighted by the music of the Bee Gees delivered by Vallarta favorite, Paul Fracassi.
Yes, Paul has another mega hit show so buy tickets in advance. “Staying Alive: A Tribute to the Music of the Bee Gees” is performed each Sunday night at 7:30 pm at The Red Room at Act II Stages. For tickets or more information about this show and others at Act II, go to www.actiientertainment.com.
