Starring lead cast members from the Tony Award Winning Broadway smash, JERSEY BOYS, The Doo Wop Project is a night of songs mixed with individual stories and references to their upbringings and experiences in the business, particularly backstage at The August Wilson Theatre, home of Jersey Boys, where the idea for the Doo Wop Project group was conceived. The music is an homage to classic Doo Wop and was inspired by that sound. The show honors songs and groups we hear all the time, but maybe more importantly, some songs that exist only as a memory or others that somehow got lost along the way and are now relegated to box sets sold on late night infomercials. Expect classic hits by every standard.

The Doo Wop Project featrues songs by Randy & The Rainbows (Denise), Thurston Harris (Little Bitty Pretty One), and many more classics. In addition, the show will include classic contemporary songs such as The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson and Valerie. Taking such contemporary songs and giving them the Doo Wop spin brings a whole new generation to the wonderful music of Doo Wop.
