Fresh off their 2014 PBS concert special, Let the Good Times Roll, the retro doo-wop specialists known as Under the Streetlamp step into the spotlight for a night of great music from the '50s and '60s. This modern-day Rat Pack is made up of recent leading cast members from the hit musical Jersey Boys, who apply their unique blend of tight harmonies and slick dance moves to Motown and old time rock 'n' roll hits, putting their own spin on timeless tunes by The Drifters, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Four Seasons and many more. The 10-member pop a cappella ensemble Gentleman's Rule are the special guests. Learn More
