Under the Streetlamp Featuring Former Cast Members of "Jersey Boys" to Play at the Lyceum Theatre on April 21

Arrow Rock, MO, March 3, 2017 – Under the Streetlamp will perform 2 live concerts on Friday, April 21 at 2 pm and 8pm in the intimate setting of the Lyceum Theatre. Featuring former leading cast members of hit Broadway musicals including “JERSEY BOYS,” Under the Streetlamp is a concert celebration of classic hits of the American Radio Songbook from the 1950s-1970s. 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, Michael Ingersoll, 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.

The goal of the concerts is to raise much needed funds to continue providing Professional Theatre to the Heart of Missouri. “There cannot be anything better, for the many fans of Under the Streetlamp, than to watch their live performances in a close and personal setting such as the Lyceum Theatre!” said Lyceum Director of Marketing and Special Events, Kevin Magee. “Our work could not be possible without financial support from the people who believe in what we do. This is why regular engagement with our supporters and fundraising events are so vital to keeping our work going.”
