They're bringing "SexyBack," and really jazzing it up.

On Monday night, stars from "Newsies," "The Book of Mormon" and other stage hits will be in sync at 54 Below for "Broadway Sings Justin Timberlake," a reimagining of the pop star's repertoire, complete with new orchestrations and full jazz band accompaniment.

Among the 20 actors who will put some swing and sway into the JT songbook are "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" Tony winner Lena Hall ("Rock Your Body" seems like a natural for her) and Jason Gotay, who did some webslinging in the title role of Spider-Man. (Spidey didn't wear a suit and tie, but maybe Gotay can sing "Suit and Tie.")

Timberlake is in some pretty impressive company: Previous performers whose songs have gotten the "Broadway Sings" treatment include Adele, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé and Amy Winehouse.

Show time is 11:30 p.m. at 254 W. 54th St. Tickets are $25-$50 with a $20 food or beverage minimum.
