Relive the Classic Hits with ‘Under the Streetlamp’

FLASHBACK TO CLASSIC HITS FROM 1950s TO 1970s WITH UNDER THE STREETLAMP

Show Brings Together Performers from “Jersey Boys;” Other Broadway Musicals

Omaha, Neb. (April 19, 2016) – Exuding the rapport of a modern-day Rat Pack, Under the Streetlamp is bringing doo-wop, Motown and rock ‘n’ roll to new audiences at the Holland Performing Arts Center, 1200 Douglas Street, on Thursday, May 19, 2016, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $25, and are available at TicketOmaha.com, 402.345.0606 or at the Ticket Omaha Office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center.

Under the Streetlamp offers audiences the opportunity to hear four stars of stage and screen: Michael Ingersoll, Christopher Kale Jones, Brandon Wardell and Shonn Wiley. Featuring tight harmonies and slick dance moves, the performers take audiences back to the era of sharkskin suits, flashy cars and martini shakers – a flashback to a time when people would gather under streetlamps on hot summer nights to sing their favorite rock and roll songs.

Classic hits from Frankie Valli, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, Bobby Darin and more are reborn for today’s audiences along with hilarious behind-the-scenes tales.

The quartet met onstage as lead characters in the Broadway musical Jersey Boys and each performer has an impressive list of credits. Among 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.” Under the Streetlamp aired its first PBS special in 2011 and its second in 2014.
