Four singers graduated from the “Jersey Boys” cast on Broadway to become The Midtown Men.
They’ve been traveling throughout America since 2007, including an Omaha stop in 2013. And they’re coming back this weekend for two shows with the Omaha Symphony at the Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St.
Group members Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and J. Robert Spencer shared the Broadway stage in the musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons more than a thousand times. Hoff won a Tony Award for his work, and Spencer was a Tony nominee. They were the first vocal group ever formed by principal cast members from popular Broadway show.
As you might expect, a number of Four Seasons songs are among their repertoire, including “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Oh What a Night.”
But they don’t stop there. They also sing pieces by the Mamas and the Papas, The Beatles, The Drifters and other 1960s superstars.
Critics love them.
After they performed with the Oklahoma Philharmonic, a reviewer from the Oklahoman said it was a “joyous and nostalgic trip through the music of the 1960s with terrific orchestral charts.”
Principal Pops Conductor Ernest Richardson will lead this weekend’s shows, at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets, available at omahasymphony.org or 402-345-0606, range from $19 to $89.
