The Midtown Men, a.k.a. the original stars of Broadway's runaway hit Jersey Boys, are coming to Chicago with a whole new musical act that celebrates the love songs of the 1960s for two special Valentine's Day performances, Friday, February 14 at 1:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre.
The quartet features top-shelf choreography, incredible harmonies and legendary onstage chemistry when the first vocal group ever formed by the principal cast of a high-profile Broadway show branches out.
Along with their acclaimed renditions of songs by the Four Seasons they'll bring more sensational love songs by The Beatles, The Beach Boys and the best artists from the golden age of Motown. More than just a tribute to a bygone era, the Midtown Men will show you - or remind you - of what it was like to see those groundbreaking artists live onstage, playing their greatest hits.
Tickets are $45 and $55. For tickets and information, call the box office, (630) 896-6666, or visit ParamountAurora.com.
Formed in 2007, The Midtown Men are Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer. Following their storied run on Broadway - where these four magnetic artists shared the stage for over a thousand performances and appeared on The Today Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve and The U.S. Open - they have been selling out venues coast to coast living the dream they once portrayed on the stage. The
New York Daily News raved "authenticity is the core of this musical brotherhood...the Midtown Men sound as crisp as their Rat Pack-inspired suits."
Not only have they continued to win over audiences of all ages at their live performances, their self-titled debut album, The Midtown Men: Sixties Hits, has met with critical acclaim and garnered 5-star album reviews across iTunes. The album was recorded in New York City and features the group performing such iconic 60s hits as Can't Buy Me Love, Up On The Roof, Time Of The Season, Candy Girl and more.
