Considering the amazing night with The Midtown Men at BB King’s last May and the upcoming closing of Jersey Boys after 11+ years on Broadway, the January 8th concert at BB King’s had all the makings of a very special evening. I think those in attendance would agree – it did not disappoint!
The audience arrived early to dine and chat with friends before the show. All over the room, there were greetings and hugs as friends were reunited in their mutual love for this group.
Some very special friends of TMM were in the room as well, including long-time friends and supporters Stevie and Maureen VanZandt, Jay Siegel (the Tokens), and Gene Cornish (the Rascals).
Also introduced from the stage were members of the Jersey Boys family, both past and present. Original Cast members Peter Gregus (Bob Crewe), Sara Schmidt (“My Boyfriend’s Back), alumni Russell Fischer and Travis Cloer (Broadway, Vegas Frankie), as well as current and final cast member Chris Messina cheered and danced their way through the show.
Christian, Michael, Daniel, and Bobby fed off the energy from the audience, and appeared to be having as much fun as all of us. It was a truly special night in midtown, and the best way to start the new year. Were you there? Send us your pictures (Tmmclub@comcast.net) and we’ll post them!
