Boasting stars from the West End, a brand-new spectacular featuring the kings of swing, Sammy Davis Jnr, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, is coming to town and the Standard has a pair of tickets to give away to two lucky readers.
Described as possessing all the panache and attitude of Sammy, Dean and Frank during their Vegas heyday hit show Rat Pack Live combines the sound of big band swing with an all-star cast.
The evening’s Dino, Mark Halliday, has performed as Dean Martin to critical acclaim both in the West End of London and in international touring productions.
Spirit glass in one hand, microphone in the other, he captures Martin’s polished irreverence on beautifully-performed songs like Ain’t That a Kick in the Head, Mambo Italiano and That’s Amore.
The evening’s Frank Sinatra, Stephen Rashbrook, has played Ol’ Blue Eyes at the Strand, Savoy and Adelphi Theatres in the West End of London and on UK, European and US tours.
And Jim Whitley as Sammy Davis Jnr has toured extensively as both Sammy and Nat King Cole. The former Manchester City international footballer has previously performed alongside Judy Carmichael at New York’s famous Rainbow Rooms.
Together they combine ‘swingsationally’ in Rat Pack Live. Featuring all the patter and razzamatazz of the Rat Pack’s infamous live stage show, prepare to experience the definition of cool.
Rat Pack Live is on Friday 17th October at Lincoln Theatre Royal at 7.30pm.
