Back in 2005, a show called 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 reunites stars from the original cast of Broadway’s Jersey Boys. They are Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer. In over 2000 live shows, audiences of all ages have adored them.
