"THE RAT PACK IS BACK!" takes the audience back in time and space to classic Las Vegas on 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 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 (appearing as Joey Bishop); Drew Anthony (appearing as Dean Martin); Kenny Jones(appearing as Sammy Davis, Jr.) and Brian Duprey (appearing 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," and "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").
