Gerry Polci, Lee Shapiro, Don Ciccone, Jim Ryan and Larry Gates were original members of some of the hottest acts that ever contributed to the American pop songbook. They formed The Hit Men, because they are responsible for so many hits. In their Playhouse show, these consummate entertainers will also share the show biz behind-the-scenes stories that can only be told by the people who were there and lived the experience.
According to Allison Stockel, Executive Director of The Ridgefield Playhouse, “It’s a unique opportunity to see great musicians perform together singing the hits we know and love.”
