Former JERSEY BOYS Broadway cast member John Leone makes his Metropolitan Room debut on Sunday, January 31 at 4pm in “Songs My Father Loved.”

The fast paced homage to some of the iconic male voices of the 20th century, celebrates Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Vic Damone, and Jerry Vale, among others. All share Leone’s Italian-American heritage, but it is the influence these singers had on Leone’s father and his cronies at their local social club, the Sons of Italy, that affected Leone most. Here is where he launched his show business career – first as a singing busboy, and later as “the lodge’s” house wedding band singer.

Leone is backed by The David Brunetti Trio. Directed by Dann Fink, “Songs My Father Loved” is produced by Lynn DiMenna’s M Lynn Enterprises.

In addition to JERSEY BOYS, Leone starred on Broadway in “Les Miserables” as Marius, and on the national tour of “Titanic” in which he served as First Officer Charles Lightoller. Regionally he has appeared at theatres across the country, in everything from Shakespeare to Sam Shepard. His television credits include a recurring role as sports agent Ricky Williams on the Showtime series Soul Food, and appearances on all three of the Law & Order franchises.

“Songs My Father Loved” plays one-time only, Sunday January 31 at 4pm. The cover charge is $25 (plus a two-drink minimum). For reservations call 212/206-0440 or visit www.metropolitanroom.com for more information or to pre-pay online.
