Newton Theatre presents Under the Streetlamp With Stars From Jersey Boys
(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents Under the Streetlamp on Friday, November 17, 2017 at 8:00pm. Featuring former leading cast members of the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical “Jersey Boys”, Under The Streetlamp is a concert celebration of classic hits of the American radio songbook from the 1950’s – 1970’s. Their shows feature tight harmonies and slick dance moves that take audiences back to an era of sharkskin suits, flashy cars and martini shakers. A flashback to a time when, on hot summer nights, people would gather under a streetlamp to sing their favorite rock and roll songs.
Classic hits first performed by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, Bobby Darin and more are reborn for today’s audiences in this evening of great music and hilarious behind-the-scenes tales, complete with an exceptional seven-piece band composed of world-class musicians. With irresistible charm and rapport, Under the Streetlamp offers audiences the opportunity to get to know four critically acclaimed stars of stage and screen, Eric Gutman, Christopher Kale Jones, Brandon Wardell and Shonn Wiley. While each performer gets his moment in the spotlight, their synergy and charisma as a group has drawn an extremely devoted nationwide following.
Each performer carries with him an impressive list of credits. Between them, they have appeared on Broadway, in feature films and on television – including special appearances during the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square, on The Tonight Show, The Primetime Emmy Awards, The Tony Awards and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The show’s original performers met onstage as the lead characters in “Jersey Boys” and have since formed a concert sensation of their very own. After achieving initial success performing in and around Chicago, Under the Streetlamp aired its first PBS special in 2011, and a second in 2014. The four gifted singers are currently on tour in support of their 3rd PBS Special - Rockin’ Round The Clock, thrilling sold-out houses throughout the country.
Tickets range from $47.00 to $62.00 and may be purchased by visiting www.TheNewtonTheatre.com or contacting the Box Office at 973-940-NEWT.
