Featuring four stars of the original cast of Broadway's "Jersey Boys"
Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016 at 8 p.m.


Fairfax, Va., Aug. 30, 2016 — From the bright lights of Broadway, The Midtown Men bring the swinging sounds of the Sixties from Manhattan to Fairfax. Featuring four debonair and supremely talented showmen from the original cast of Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical, “Jersey Boys,” The Midtown Men appear at the Center for the Arts on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016 at 8 p.m.

In this spectacular concert, Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer share their musical magic performing chart-toppers by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown artists and, of course, The Four Seasons. These charismatic charmers shared the Broadway stage for more than a thousand performances and now you can see their energetic choreography, hear their impeccable harmonies and experience their legendary chemistry in this celebration of the music that defined a decade. "Authenticity is the core of this musical brotherhood ... The Midtown Men sound as crisp as their Rat Pack-inspired suits!" (New York Daily News)

Following their historic three-year run on Broadway in "Jersey Boys," these four gifted entertainers began their next chapter as The Midtown Men, becoming the first vocal group ever formed by the principal cast of a high-profile Broadway show. They have since rocked performing arts centers and symphony halls from coast to coast, and delighted television audiences with appearances on "The Today Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman," as well as their recent live concert special on PBS filmed at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. The group's self-titled debut album, "The Midtown Men: Sixties Hits" and recent live album and companion DVD, "The Midtown Men: Live in Concert!" were met with critical acclaim. The Midtown Men also had the opportunity to collaborate with legendary producer, musician, actor and Sirius-XM Radio host Steven Van Zandt on the group's first radio single, a new arrangement of the holiday classic "All Alone on Christmas" featuring members of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band; all proceeds went to the American Red Cross following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
