Experience the ritz and allure of classic Vegas with this swinging party of a show. “The Rat Pack Is Back!” transports the audience back through time and space to a balmy night circa 1960 when four show business legends — Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Dean Martin — converged at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas for the first time. These stars delivered style with substance, swing with swagger and a non-stop party to which everyone wanted access.
“The Rat Pack Is Back!” unites four of the country’s most accomplished singer/actors: Mickey Joseph as Joey Bishop, Drew Anthony as Dean Martin, Kenny Jones as Sammy Davis, Jr. and Brian Duprey as Frank Sinatra.
In “The Rat Pack Is Back!,” Frank, Sammy, Joey and Dean are back and do it “just one more time.” What ensues is an uncanny recreation of one of the Rat Pack’s raucous, antic-filled performances, featuring Bishop’s hilarious comedy and performances of such standards as Sinatra’s “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “A Foggy Day,” Martin’s “That’s Amoré” and Davis’ “Mr. Bojangles.” Backing the singers is swinging 12-piece live orchestra performing period perfect orchestrations.
“The Rat Pack Is Back!” is produced by Dick Feeney (“Viva Las Vegas”, “Showgirls”, “The Great Gleason”).
