Quite frankly, I can’t ever remember being so impressed by a young performer as I was with Paul Fracassi last season. When I saw Paul’s Walk Like A Man show featuring the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, I was so mesmerized by his voice, his choreography and his incredible enthusiasm, I rushed out to see his original Legends of the 50’s and 60’s show, featuring the music of Elvis, Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Davy Jones, Buddy Holly, Bobby Darin and more.
Well, Act II Entertainment is welcoming Paul back with open arms this season as one of its main headliners. “Back by popular demand” is a bit of an understatement for those of us who became diehard fans! This season’s shows are going to be even bigger and more thrilling. They’ll include Vegas style costume changes along with two female backup singers, one of whom was last year’s Voice of Vallarta winner, Ana Adame. Paul is bringing new songs, new choreography and spicing things up with some incredible PV talent. And in case you’ve forgotten, no one can pull off that fabulous falsetto voice, like Paul Fracassi. (well, maybe Barry Gibb 30 years ago)
Twenty-four year old singing sensation Paul Fracassi is a former Star Search and Canadian Idol semi-finalist and graduate of Toronto’s famous St. Elizabeth School for the Performing Arts. He created, choreographed and performed Walk Like A Man for audiences throughout North America. That’s no small feat, for someone in his early 20’s. And don’t we all love the enthusiasm, beauty and talent of young entertainers!
Since leaving Vallarta last Spring, Paul has been very busy touring, along with producing and recording his first original CD and new CDs from his shows, Walk Like A Man and Legends of the 50’s and 60’s. Also over the summer, Paul’s show set a box office record at the Regent Theatre in Toronto for selling all seats plus all standing room only tickets. From private events in New York’s swanky enclaves to sold-out venues, Paul’s momentum over the summer never stopped!
On Sunday, December 6th at 7:30 pm, Paul returns to The Red Room with Legends of the 50’s and 60’s, a show that he exclusively developed, rehearsed and presented last season to his Puerto Vallarta audiences. On Sunday, he performs an even more exciting version of this show that takes a nostalgic look at the best loved hits of some of music’s most iconic stars. This tribute showcases not only the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, but other favorites like ‘Old Blue Eyes’ and The Monkey’s frontman, Davy Jones along with songs from Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin and the legendary Buddy Holly. This season’s show includes more dancing and lots of incredible costume changes. Legends of the 50’s and 60’s is performed every Sunday night at 7:30 pm.
Paul’s other show, Walk Like a Man, opens on Wednesday, Dec 9th at 7:30 pm and is scheduled for every Wednesday evening. Walk Like A Man was inspired by Jersey Boys, the hit movie and stage play about the life and times of Franie Valli and The Four Seasons and the well-known music that brought them international fame. Paul communicates their beats, harmonies, style and showmanship along with their thrilling sounds. Every show includes a variety of Four Season favorites and the signature song, “Walk Like A Man.” This season Paul is adding the romantic, hit song, “My Eyes Adore You.”
Paul Fracassi is the consummate performer. He effortlessly reaches those soaring high notes that send chills and thrills to his audience. He cleverly maneuvers his fabulous dance moves and has now added new excitement to his shows with backup singers. With a superb command of his voice and the stage, Paul triumphantly returns to The Red Room as one of Vallarta’s best entertainers. Go see the adorable and very talented Paul Fracassi!
