Broadway’s young star, currently playing legendary songwriter Barry Mann in “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” Broadway’s new mega-hit (for which he was nominated for a Tony Award this year), is ready to delight everyone with his musical gifts in his acclaimed cabaret show, “A Little Help From My Friends.” Spector’s revue traces the legacy of the great male singers whose vocal prowess made them the rock stars of their generations, even before rock was born. After starring as Frankie Valli for six years in that other hit musical, “Jersey Boys,” Spector wraps his critically-praised voice around the songs that have made superstars out of more than a century of legends from Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson to the great Enrico Caruso himself.
