“Steppin’ Out” Review of Michael Ingersoll & the Boys of Four Season Fame, mp3’s Too

Wednesday brought me, for the first time, to the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights. On tap; “Steppin Out” courtesy of Michael Ingersoll (a.k.a. Nick Massi) of the recently ended “Jersey Boy” fame, with his fellow cast members and wife Angela. Anyone who enjoys flashing back to the “Rat Pack” and “Doo Wop” era will really enjoy this show. Michael takes the lead and perform solo early on including a chic number with Angela. A little comedy and audience interaction spices things up at bit. The show really starts to sizzle after intermission when the other “Boys”, John Michael Dias, Shonn Wiley, and Michael Cunio share funny and entertaining stories of youth, growing up, and show biz while belting out hit after hit of those oldies but goodies backed up by an outstanding band “The Mulligan Mosaics”. This show will surely entertain but be forewarned, don’t go for the Four Seasons songs alone, only a medley of those songs create an exciting finale to the show. The Metropolis theater is an intimate and very comfortable venue to see a show, great atmosphere.
