ECPA’s ‘Intimate Evening with Matt Bogart’ deemed success

Guests enjoyed a memorable evening on Friday, Sept. 8 when the Elmhurst Centre for Performing Arts (ECPA) hosted Broadway’s Matt Bogart at Buik Recital Hall on the campus of Elmhurst University.

Bogart, known for his years-long run in Broadway’s Jersey Boys, treated guests to crowd favorites such as “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “Walkin’ in Memphis.”

Bogart was joined on-stage by York High School graduate and Postmodern Jukebox and Shout Section Big Band vocalist Tatum Langley, who performed “Falling” from Smokey Joe’s Café, a musical in which Bogart starred in the original Broadway production.

Together, Bogart and Langley sang jazz standard, “All of You” and “They Say It’s Wonderful” from Annie Get Your Gun.  They were accompanied throughout the evening by pianist Jeff Panko.

“An Intimate Evening with Matt Bogart” was made possible in part by the support of Elmhurst University, CyberOptik, and Peter Monk Craig Creative.
