WAYNE, N.J. -- The Doo Wop Project -- featuring current and former stars of Jersey Boys and Motown the Musical -- will return to William Paterson University's Shea Center for a third consecutive season, on Saturday, April 16.
The Doo Wop Project faithfully traces the music from groups like the Crests, the Belmonts and the Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, the Temptations and the Four Seasons -- and all the way to Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse.The cast of singers features
- Dominic Scaglione Jr., who currently plays Frankie Valli in Broadway's Jersey Boys;
- Charl Brown, who was Tony-nominated for Best Actor in a Musical for his breakout role as Smokey Robinson in Broadway's Motown the Musical;
- John Michael Dias, who played Frankie Valli on Broadway and all over the country in the national tours of Jersey Boys;
- Dominic Nolfi, was recently in the Paper Mill Playhouse's A Bronx Tale, directed by Robert DeNiro and Chazz Palminteri, and he also appeared in the Broadway's Jersey Boys and Motown the Musical; and
- Dwayne Cooper, "who is the modern day metamorphosis of Sammy Davis Jr. and Barry White," a press release notes, has appeared in Broadway's Motown the Musical and Hairspray.
Orchestra tickets are $30, and loge tickets are $25. Remaining tickets are very limited: buy them here.
There will be a meet-and-greet immediately following the concert. The group will sign and sell copies of its new album, "The Doo Wop Project." To download the album and learn more about the group, visit its website.
