Arrow Rock, MO – The Lyceum Theatre is proud to present the Artists Lounge Live Concert Series featuring two nationally touring recording artists performing two unique shows on both Saturday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18, 2018.

PBS television star Michael Ingersoll invites you to sing along to the songs you can’t forget in Try a Little Tenderness. Ingersoll is known for starring in Jersey Boys (Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco) and as a member of retro-rock sensation Under the Streetlamp on PBS.

Michael is also known for playing Nick Massi of the Four Seasons in the Tony Award-winning hit Jersey Boys (Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles). As well as performing, Michael and wife Angela Ingersoll produce the Artists Lounge Live Concert Series. As a producer, Michael collaborates with performing arts centers (Paramount Theatre, Elgin Arts Center, Northlight Theatre, etc.) and philanthropic organizations (American Cancer Society, United Way, Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, etc.), as well as co-producing Streetlamp’s concert specials for Public Television. Further theatre credits include Award Nominations for Of Mice and Men, Floyd Collins, Bat Boy: The Musical, and tick, tick… BOOM!. Further television appearances include Access Hollywood, Extra!

Beloved by audiences for starring as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys (First National Tour), Christopher Kale Jones currently wins hearts on PBS as a member of retro-rock sensation Under the Streetlamp boasting four PBS concert specials seen in hundreds of millions of homes nationwide. In his solo concert Darin, Jones embodies the dazzling versatility of Bobby Darin, recounting a life lived in the spotlight and lost too soon. Songs include “Dream Lover,” “Mack the Knife,” and “Beyond the Sea.”  “Jones has the audience swooning until the final curtain,” raves Theatre Mania.

Jones’ other theatre highlights include starring as Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors opposite his wife, actress Jenna Coker-Jones (Ford’s Theater, Washington  DC); and Mercury in Olympus On My Mind (Bristol Riverside Theatre) for which he received a Barrymore Award Nomination.
