Original Jersey Boys star Daniel Reichard will perform his cabaret show Friends, Acquaintances, and Strangers to Birdland on Sunday, May 8, at 6pm.

"New York City is blessed with an abundance of gifted people, several of whom I know well, others whom I've known casually over the years, and many of whom I have never met, but admired from afar," says Reichard. "That's what this show is about — celebrating the great times we can all have when we get together on any given night in the Big Apple. This evening will be a once-in-a-lifetime event."

Reichard's guest performers will include Broadway veteran Michael Longoria (Jersey Boys), tap dancer Luke Hawkins (Hail Caesar!), cellist Elad Kabilio, singer-songwriter Maddy Wyatt (of the band Wyatt), and more. Jesse Vargas will serve as the evening's musical director and arranger.

Reichard is best known for his portrayal of chief songwriter and original Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio in the long-running musical Jersey Boys, a role he originated both on Broadway and in the La Jolla Playhouse premiere. He followed Jersey Boys with a run as Candide in Leonard Bernstein's Candide at the New York City Opera and is currently touring concert halls across North America with fellow Jersey Boys alumnae in the vocal group, "The Midtown Men."
