Daniel Reichard, who created the role of Bob Gaudio in the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, will offer Friends, Acquaintances, and Strangers May 8 at 6 PM at Birdland in Manhattan.

Reichard's guests that evening will include the previously reported Michael Longoria, tap dancer Luke Hawkins, cellist Elad Kabilio and singer-songwriter Maddy Wyatt. Newly announced for the evening is Waitress' Keala Settle, a Tony Award nominee for her performance in Hands on a Hardbody.

Reichard's musical director and arranger is Jesse Vargas.

Reichard stated, “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. 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 followed Jersey Boys with a critically acclaimed performance as Candide in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide at the New York City Opera. He made his New York City debut in Forbidden Broadway: 20th Anniversary Celebration and also played Keith Haring in Radiant Baby at Joe Papp’s Public Theater. Reichard is currently touring concert halls across North America with fellow Jersey Boys alumnae in the successful vocal group The Midtown Men.

Birdland is located at 315 West 44th Street. Visit BirdlandJazz.com.
