Sinatra Forever Tribute to Frank Sinatra is the swingiest show on the planet.
This high-energy original show will make you feel like you’ve actually experienced the magical spontaneity that Frank Sinatra brought to the stage every night.
This show creates something that has never been seen before Impressions never impersonated, songs never sung and things you will say that’s what would Frank Sinatra do in the 21st Century.
Ask yourself, "How would this Timeless Entertainer re-invent "COOL" today?
It’s a light musical comedy tribute that immediately transports audiences back to the days when great swaggering talent, song, dance and comedy ruled the stage.
The time is right for the very best musical tribute and comical parody, celebrating the brilliance and charm of this Legendary Icon.
You'll never be more excited about any show after you've seen Sinatra Forever Tribute to Frank Sinatra
Come see the show that legendary impressionist Rich Little said “This Production represents the best salute to Frank Sinatra that I have ever seen.”
It’s as timeless as a martini, a tuxedo or a diamond ring. No white tigers, no pyrotechnics, no triple jointed French Canadians - just raw talent and a camaraderie that gives the audience a sense that they have been given a rare opportunity to peek in on a great party.
So back, relax, grab a cocktail and enjoy the show
