Come see The Midtown Men: April 4, 7PM
Back in 2005, a show called “The Jersey Boys” took the world by storm. Four guys played the parts of 1960s musical stars Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. In 2006, the show won four Tony awards, and a decade later, it had become the 12th longest running show on Broadway.
The Midtown Men is a group made up of four stars from the original cast of Jersey Boys. In over 2000 live shows, audiences of all ages have adored them.
