Kyforward.com, a website for all things Kentucky, is giving away a pair of “prime” tickets for this weekend’s Midtown Men show at the Lexington Opera House. Here’s the post from their “smart money” section:
Opera House Midtown Men production
A reminder that two prime seats, valued at $150, could be yours if you answer the contest question and email to email@example.com by 8 a.m. Thursday, April 26. Winner announced that day.
The Midtown Men production features top hits from a Who’s Who of the ‘60s, including the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Temptations, Jackson 5 and the Four Seasons. It’s the last show in the historic Lexington Opera House’s Broadway series.
Lucky winner will answer this question:
The four Midtown Men performers were also featured performers in what other popular Broadway production?
So many important musical events have happened on this date – April 21st – such as The Beatles first meeting with The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley’s first hit “Heartbreak Hotel” becoming #1, and the births of entertainment greats such as Iggy Pop, Anthony Quinn and Patti Lupone. But most important to us here at The Midtown Club is the birth date of actor, singer, and Midtown Man CHRISTIAN HOFF!
Happy Birthday Christian! Wishing you all the best that life has to offer, today and every day. You deserve it!
