Midtown Men's `60s sounds, art gallery on tap in Culver Monday

Culver Academies' Huffington Concert Series continues Monday evening with the Midtown Men, four members of the original cast of Broadway’s "Jersey Boys," live onstage at Eppley Auditorium, starting at 7:30 p.m.

While "The Jersey Boys" was centered on its stars' portrayals of the 1960s Motown group the Four Seasons, Midtown Men will offer a broader, but similar sampling of 1960s fare to the audience, ranging from Motown hits to the Beatles, the Beach Boys to the Mamas and the Papas, "a journey through all the iconic groups of the '60s," member Daniel Reichard told one media source.

Together, the members of the group boast a dizzying array of awards and nominations, of recognizable voice work on television and in Hollywood, and have teamed up with legendary musical stars in a variety of genres. More information, as well as videos of the group in performance, is available at www.themidtownmen.com.

Tickets to the performance may be purchased at the Steinbrenner Performing Arts Center box office, located in the foyer of the main entry facing Academy Road, through Friday, from 1 to 4 p.m., or at the Eppley Auditorium box office, located in the lobby, one hour prior to the performance. Questions may be directed to Marsha Coven at covenm@culver.org, or 574-842-7058.

Tickets are $20 (orchestra/mezzanine) and $15 (senior or student), and $15 for balcony seats ($10 for seniors or students). All ticket sales are final, and the box office accepts cash, check, MasterCard, Visa and American Express.

In addition to Monday's concert, the public will be given a unique opportunity to tour the recently-opened gallery of the Crisp Visual Arts Center, which is currently showcasing "Treasures of the Culver Collection," in its on-campus location east of the auditorium. The Arts Center will open two hours prior to the concert (that is, at 5:30 p.m.) and the public is invited.
