The Rat Pack – Live From Las Vegas returns to London to take you on a trip back in time to the glamorous, glitzy nights of Las Vegas in the late 1950s and early 60s.
Audiences will witness performers in the guises of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr & Dean Martin singing at the famous Sands hotel, along with the Burrelli Sisters and The Rat Pack Big Band.
This spectacular production – with a very special Christmas theme until 6 January – celebrates the incredible singing talent of three world-famous performers, and some of the finest music and song that has ever been recorded.
The Sands hotel was the very height of Las Vegas sophistication. The Rat Pack came to being in 1960 when, during the filming of Ocean’s Eleven, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr, Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford performed together on stage for the first time. From then on, they were forever known as the Rat Pack. Las Vegas was their playground and everywhere else was known, in Rat Pack vocabulary, as ‘Dullsville, Ohio’. Frank, Sammy & Dean were a force to be reckoned with, an inexhaustible energy that is as apparent in their music today as it ever was.
Hit follows hit in The Rat Pack – Live From Las Vegas, including Pack favourites Mr Bojangles, That’s Amore, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, What Kind Of Fool Am I, Volare, My Way, Candyman, Everybody Loves Somebody, New York New York and many more.
Until 6 January, seasonal classics in Christmas With The Rat Pack will include Baby It’s Cold Outside, Merry Little Christmas, Winter Wonderland, White Christmas, Jungle Bells, and Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow.
Nicola Emmanuelle will then join the show from Tuesday January 9 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the First Lady of Song and Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald. Songs featured in this special edition of the production will include Night And Day, The Lady Is A Tramp, Mack The Knife and S’Wonderful.
