Dressed to the nines in their Hugo Boss suits, the dapper, snapping, and crooning foursome of The Midtown Men light up the room with their slick, effortlessly charming repaving of rock ‘n’ roll’s memory lane. For three years, the team of Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard, Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer, and Tony Award winner Christian Hoff were the toast of the Great White Way, living the roles of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons for more than 1,000 performances. The group comes of age as The Midtown Men, enthralling fans with their onstage chemistry and a new songbook of 1960s staples.
In an act that’s won praise from pop-music legends such as Paul Anka, Gene Cornish of The Rascals, and Bobby Vee, the photogenic four put their own stamp on classics such as The Mamas & the Papas’ “California Dreamin’,” The Zombies’ “Time of the Season,” and The Turtles’ “Happy Together,” embellishing each golden oldie with their dulcet harmonies and synchronized dance moves. As the New York Daily News raved, “The Midtown Men sound as crisp as their Rat Pack–inspired suits” as they jump, jive, and toss their jackets over puddles formed from fans’ tears of joy. In addition to ditties from The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and the Motown era, the Men also perform hits from The Four Seasons, powered by Longoria’s mighty falsetto and helium-filled lungs.

NOT A PERFORMANCE OF, NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE SHOW JERSEY BOYS
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
“Wonderful historic venue.”
