Thompson was one of the original members of Jersey Boys at the Paris and will continue to conduct the musical production until it closes in September. But he has plenty of other projects to keep him busy after the curtain falls. Thompson is co-founder and host of The Smith Center’s Composers Showcase, a monthly event that provides a platform for local musicians to show off their talent. He also co-wrote Idaho!, a homegrown musical that debuted this month as part of the venue’s Broadway series. It is the first Las Vegas production to ever be featured in Reynolds Hall.
