Walk Like a Man: A Celebration of the Music of Frankie Valli
- The memories: innocent times when audiences swooned for smartly dressed vocal quartets from Jersey
- The act: Broadway razzle-dazzle, synchronized footwork, barbershop harmonies, and those Valli high notes that tickle the sun’s chin
- The ringer: tenor Val Martinez, who toured with the real Frankie Valli himself as one of the Four Seasons
- The tunes: ’60s hits such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Sherry,” as well as ’70s gems such as “December ‘63 (Oh What a Night)”<p>
Hot August Nights: The Neil Diamond Concert Experience
- Hot August Night for rookies: the mega-platinum double-live album that encapsulated Neil at his sun-soaked ’70s best, recorded during a sold-out 10-night reign of LA’s Greek Theatre
- The ringer: Dean Colley, who possesses Neil’s silken voice, come-hither eyebrows, sequined shirts, and hypnotic chest hair
- The raves: “Dean Colley is the best Neil Diamond impersonator in the world,” according to Las Vegas Sun Review
- The show: backed by his sturdy band, Colley recreates the vibe of Hot August Nights with tunes such as “Cherry Cherry” and “Holly Holy,” while mixing in later Neil nuggets such as “America”<p>
Burnsville Performing Arts Center
Before their show, guests of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center peer out the lobby’s two-story glass walls to the skyline of Minneapolis. Shaking off the inspiring sights of civilization, they enter into a world of entertainment and make believe. Inside the 1,014-seat auditorium, the proscenium stage spotlights actors and musicians, and striking metal cutouts line the walls. When lit from behind, these cutouts create a tangle of shadows and light reminiscent of a child’s dream or the opus of an insane shadow puppeteer. The center also hosts a 150-seat Black Box theatrer, as well as an expansive art gallery and rehearsal area.
“I enjoyed the show! During intermission i walked out in front and enjoyed the scenery of a small park. Nice”
