Joining the Jersey Boys star were Olivier Award winner Leslie Margherita (Zorro the Musical), Tony nominee Charl Brown (Motown the Musical), upcoming Bliss star Mario Cantone (Sex and the City), Daniel Reichard (Jersey Boys), Jaime Cepero (Smash), Ashanti J’aria (Disaster! Off-Broadway), and Danny Longoria.
Michael Longoria’s Holiday Hop benefited Opening Act, which provides educational theatre programming at N.Y.C. schools with below-average graduation rates. The cabaret concert was produced by Longoria, Liz Skollar of Skollar PR, and Taylor James of 42West PR.
Longoria originated the role of Joey in Jersey Boys on Broadway before taking on the role of Frankie Valli. The performer has since released several albums and appeared onstage in The View UpStairs, Hairspray, The Midtown Men concert tour, and more.
