Under the Streetlamp is a concert celebration of classic hits of the American radio songbook from the 1950s to 1970s. A time when, on hot summer nights, people would gather under a streetlamp to sing from the heart in harmony with their friends. Featuring four leading cast members of hit Broadway musicals including “JERSEY BOYS,” this concert features your favorite Doo-Wop, Motown and old time Rock ‘n’ Roll hits and a unique blend of tight harmonies and slick dance moves!
Classic hits first performed by Frankie Valli, 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 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.”
“We think of ourselves as hosts to a party – and we’ve invited people of all ages,” says Ingersoll. “They can sing along. They can dance in the aisles. We of course show respect for these great songs and we want everyone to leave the party smiling.”
The production’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 the second in 2014. The four gifted singers then set off on the national tour that continues today, thrilling sold-out houses throughout the country.
Wheeler Executive Director Gena Buhler states, “This is one of the most exciting shows on our Winter lineup because it’s truly something everyone can enjoy! Young and old can sing along to these classic songs because they’re so deeply rooted in American culture. Bring your kids and even your grandkids and introduce them to some of America’s most beloved music sung in a new way.”
