This sensational production reunites Four Stars from the Original Broadway Cast of Jersey Boys. Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer star in this one-of-a-kind concert experience celebrating the music that defined the ’60s.
These talented entertainers shared the Broadway stage for over a thousand performances in the mega-hit Jersey Boys. Now, as The Midtown Men, they’ve thrilled crowds on concert stages and symphony halls across the continent, and have delighted television audiences with performances on “The Today Show”, “Good Morning America,” “Access Hollywood,” “Katie,” and “The Chew.” The Men recently released their first radio single, “All Alone On Christmas,” written and produced by rock icon and Sopranos and Lilyhammer star Steven Van Zandt and backed by Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. They were honored to perform the song at the White House for the National Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington DC.
In 2014, the group released their first public television concert special, The Midtown Men Live in Concert. Taped at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s majestic Prudential Hall, the program launched in the NYC area on NJTV and WNET in December 2014 and ran in markets nationwide throughout 2015. Their new PBS show, Meet the Midtown Men, goes behind the scenes and behind the songs to get an inside, up close and personal look at the Men and their music. It premiered in August 2015 and is currently airing in markets nationally.
Their recent show at NYC’s famed Beacon Theater was a sellout smash and featured guest stars Shirley Alston Reeves from the Shirelles, La La Brooks from The Crystals, Gene Cornish from The Rascals and Petula Clark, who had 3000 people up on their feet for “Downtown.”
The Men are pleased to announce an exciting new recording project– rock superstar Tommy James has invited them to be guest artists on his new acoustic album currently in production.
Ahead of the Broadway Opening of Lempicka The Longacre Theatre Is Showcasing Art Work By Tamara de Lempicka
The Longacre Theatre (220 W 48th St.), soon-to-be home of the sweeping new musical, Lempicka, is showcasing a curated selection of renowned artist Tamara de Lempicka’s most famous works. Eschewing traditional theatrical front-of-house advertising, the Longacre’s façade now boasts prints, creating a museum-quality exhibition right in the heart of Times Square. The musical opens on Broadway on April 14, 2024 at the same venue.
The Longacre’s outdoor exhibition includes works of Self Portrait (Tamara in a Green Bugatti) (1929), Young Girl in Green (1927), Nu Adossé I (1925), The Red Tunic (1927), The Blue Scarf (1930), The Green Turban (1930), Portrait of Marjorie Ferry (1932), Portrait of Ira P. (1930), Portrait of Romana de la Salle (1928), and Adam and Eve (1932).
Starring Eden Espinosa and directed by Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin, Lempicka features book, lyrics, and original concept by Carson Kreitzer, book and music by Matt Gould, and choreography by Raja Feather Kelly.
Spanning decades of political and personal turmoil and told through a thrilling, pop-infused score, Lempicka boldly explores the contradictions of a world in crisis, a woman ahead of her era, and an artist whose time has finally come.
