Four-time Grammy winners Boyz II Men celebrate 20 years of success during a riveting show stacked with soul and fueled with the signature Motown-Philly sound. With more than 60 million records sold, Boyz II Men’s penchant for heart-tugging ballads and barbershop-quartet-shaming harmonies has made it one the most successful groups in R&B history. From the new jack swing era of Cooleyhighharmony, when Boyz were boys, through its current post-adolescent druthers for infusing Motown classics with polyphonic manhood, Boyz II Men perseveres by squeezing emotion out of their hearts like human toothpaste tubes filled with soul. On stage, the group dives into a bottomless trough of classics from their champion career, which includes combustible anthems such as “I’ll Make Love to You” and the seminal song “End of the Road,” which is mostly heard blaring from police megaphones during high-speed car chases.
Union County Performing Arts Center
As a living landmark to the performing arts and cornerstone of the Rahway Arts District, the Union County Performing Arts Center has endured history and earned its way onto the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Recently restored to its 1928 luster, the former Rahway Theatre retains the charm and grandeur of its vaudeville theater origins while encouraging new forms of entertainment. From its 1,300 seats––where crowds once gathered to watch RKO movies and WWII newsreels––audiences can marvel at the theater’s opulent, gold-crested ceilings and ponder how many dresses can be made from its rich red drapes. One of the theater’s proudest treasures is its original Wurlitzer organ, which is small in stature, but emits massive sound out of its 500 pipes.
