Distinctive renditions of “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Chicago,” “I’ve
Got the World on a String,” and dozens more from the American
standard songbook were Frank Sinatra’s stock in trade, as he
performed across the nation for crowds of all ages. “My Way— a
Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra” opens Jan. 9 at Town Hall Arts
Center, delivering dialogue between the songs.
The multi-talented Anita Boland is director and choreographer,
with cast members Allen Bennett, Erik Bryan, Kristen Samu and
Clarissa Hope Stranske.
Accompaniment will be by former Country Dinner Playhouse music
director Mitch Samu on piano, with Tag Worley on drums.
Sinatra (1915-1998) was a Jersey Boy who became a legendary
talent through much of the 20th century. Known as Chairman of the
Board, Ol’ Blue Eyes, The Voice and more, he was discovered and
signed by trumpeter Harry James in 1939 and soon thereafter by
Tommy Dorsey and band, where he became a major hit with young fans,
those screaming bobby soxers.
He became a soloist, was reputed to have mob connections, was
married twice and had other romantic involvements, including Ava
Gardner and associations with nationally prominent men and women.
In other words, he was often in the news.
