Another Sunday Kind of Wow!

October 7th, 2008

We’re a week behind on reporting on last weekend’s wonderful events, but let’s go back to the fantastic Jersey Boys Family brunch on Sunday, September 28 at B. Smith’s, organized by the truly phenomenal party planners, Irene Eizen and Pamela Singer! The beautifully-decorated Jersey Boys-themed tables, the fabulous food, and of course JB friends from all over!

The big event also featured special guests Christian Hoff and Michael Longoria who posed for pictures, signed autographs, and chatted with everyone. Christian also gave a touching, heart-felt speech. Although Rick Elice was unable to attend the brunch due to his Chicago production of Turn of the Century, his moving letter won’t soon be forgotten!

In the words of Frankie Valli, “Family is Everything….” Thank you to everyone in the JB Family for the most memorable weekend celebration!


  1. Awoke this morning to thunder and lightening, but still turned on my computer to see this wonderful re-cap of your amazing Sunday brunch in NYC. Wow!!! I wish that I could have been there to celebrate and completely feel the love. It comes through even on the internet. What a gorgeous group!

  2. Once again, the extraordinary Jersey Boys family came together to honor the show and its cast and to celebrate each other. Christian Hoff and Michael Longoria will be greatly missed in their Jersey Boys roles but they have bright futures awaiting them. So it is wasn’t a good bye to these brilliant performers but a celebration of what is yet to come for each of them.

    Fans from all over the country attended – a gathering of great friends, an outpouring of affection. Pictures say it all!

    When will I see you again, my friends? Soon, for sure.

    Hugs, IE
