The Philly POPS to Present Sixties Hits Featuring the Midtown Men, 5/16-18

With such hits as "Sherry" and "Big Girls Don't Cry", the May Philly POPS concert series is going to have audiences dancing in their seats! On May 16, 17 and 18, it's SIXTIES HITS with the Midtown Men, the original cast members of Broadway's Jersey Boys, who are bringing their sensational sound to Philadelphia to Verizon Hall in The Kimmel Center. The talented quartet consists of Tony Award-winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer. They will join conductor Michael Krajewski and The Philly POPS and perform the music of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown, of course, The Four Seasons and more.

The Philly POPS is presented by Encore Series, Inc. SIXTIES HITS will run at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m., then at 3 p.m. matinees for Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18. Tickets for The Philly POPS concerts may be purchased through www.phillypops.org, by phone at 215-893-1999 or at The Kimmel Center box office. Prices range from $33 to $110 per ticket.

During their time in the mega-hit musical Jersey Boys, these four artists shared the stage for over a thousand performances and delighted television audiences with appearances on the "Today Show," "The Late Show with David Letterman," and "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve." Following their storied run on Broadway, they have been selling out venues coast to coast living the dream they once portrayed on the stage. The Midtown Men is the first vocal group ever formed by the principal cast of a high-profile Broadway show.
