First they were “Jersey Boys” on Broadway. Now remnants of the group have reunited to become “The Midtown Men.”

Four stars of the original cast of the Tony Award-winning musical “Jersey Boys” kick off the Gretna Heritage Festival Oct. 6 with a special performance.

Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony-nominee J. Robert Spencer bring the hits of the ‘60s – “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “California Dreamin'” and more – to the Gretna Cultural Center for the Arts. Tickets to the special, one-night-only performance are $25 and are available at the Boomtown Casino gift shop or TicketWeb. Proceeds from the show benefit the arts center.

New Orleans’ own The Yat Pack with special guest Louis Prima Jr. and The Witnesses, featuring Sarah Spiegel, are joining the Midtown Men onstage.
