The brainchild of Chicagoan Michael Ingersoll, "Under The Streetlamp" is an electrifying evening of unforgettable hits featuring all four recent leading cast members of the smash Tony Award-winning hit "Jersey Boys." These incredible performers bring to life doo-wop favorites, golden oldies, Rat Pack tunes and a few special surprises. Their combined credits include Broadway, feature films, and television - including special appearances during their "Jersey Boys" tenure on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Primetime Emmy Awards" and "The Oprah Winfrey Show." "Under the Streetlamp" offers the rare opportunity to get to know these stars of stage and screen as they relate hilarious and touching stories of a life lived in show business. Complete with an orchestra comprised of world-class jazz musicians, this is one evening of rock and roll you won't want to miss!

Not only an incredible evening of music and laughter, "Under The Streetlamp" also moves forward with a mission: to join forces with performing arts venues and not-for-profit organizations across the country in an effort to raise significant funds for causes ranging from the creation of student art programs to fighting cancer, Leukemia, and AIDS. At this point in the project, "Under the Streetlamp" is on the cusp of surpassing the one million dollar mark in raised charitable contributions.

Even when appearing at single ticket commercial events, every performance must contain the opportunity to strengthen the communities that bring "Under The Streetlamp" to their audiences through fund raising efforts, hands on musical workshops for students or no-cost access to the show for financially challenged concert-goers. "Under The Streetlamp" is proud to have partnered with The United Way, The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Hope for Haiti, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, The Open Door Clinic, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, The National Cancer Society and The National Parkinson Foundation, to name a few, and is always looking for the next opportunity to help make a difference.
