The Midtown Men bring classic hits to Lutcher Thursday and Friday

ORANGE — The Lutcher Theater presents four stars from the original cast of Jersey Boys, in The Midtown Men, at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 29, and Friday, Nov. 30. Tickets are $35-$65 and can be purchased at www.lutcher.org or by calling the Lutcher box office at 409-886-5535.

A special “Girl’s Night Out” price includes four orchestra tickets for Thursday’s show, Nov. 29, for $200, which is a savings of $60 when purchased together. Ladies can attend the performance together and then meet the cast after the show.

As original cast members of Broadway’s Jersey Boys, The Midtown Men took the world by storm in one of the biggest hits of all-time. Now they are together again becoming rock stars in their own right. Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer have taken their sensational sound on the road once more, bringing to life their favorite "Sixties Hits" from The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown, The Four Seasons and more. Set lists typically include, “Let’s Hang On,” “Working My Way Back to You,” “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Happy Together,” “Candy Girl,” “Time of the Season,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Sherry.”

Currently on the road selling out venues on their 2012-13 US headlining tour – which will cover 77 cities from coast to coast and have included stellar performances in front of an 85 piece symphony orchestra. The tour will end 2012 with a highly anticipated performance at The Philharmonic Center For The Arts in Naples, Florida on December 29. The group will then continue their tour in 2013 with a combination of shows at performing arts centers and symphony halls. The group recently appeared on Good Morning America, Good Day New York, and New York Live.

On the heels of an incredible performance at the Right 2 Rock charity event honoring “Little Steven” Van Zandt at the Hammerstein Ballroom alongside rock legends Bruce Springsteen, Dion, Elvis Costello and Tom Morello, - acclaimed singing group The Midtown Men are thrilled to announce the release of their holiday single, “All Alone On Christmas.”

The track is currently available for purchase at iTunes, and in light of the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, 100 percent of all digital download proceeds from “All Alone On Christmas” will go to the American Red Cross by The Midtown Men to help aid in all relief efforts throughout the end of the year.

The original version of the track was written and produced by Van Zandt, a founding member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, producer, arranger, record producer, actor, writer, human rights activist, and international radio DJ, and was recently given a rocking new arrangement for The Midtown Men. Not only did Stevie create a new arrangement of this classic holiday tune for the singing group, but he also plays guitar on the single with musicians from the E Street Band.
