All Sinatra a tribute to Frank Sinatra originally was set to close on February 23, but due to overwhelming popularity and the demand for tickets, the Quality Hill Playhouse in Kansas City has extended the run to March 9. Sellout crowds filled the playhouse two out of the three performances for the productions opening weekend and since Opening Night on January 24 has been a sell out over a dozen times.
Frank Sinatra, also known as Ol' Blue Eyes, was arguably one of the most influential singers of all time. Quality Hill in their cabaret style gives the audience a glimpse of the life of one of the most popular entertainers to perform on stage, screen, and television.
Melinda MacDonald, Jon Daugharty, and J. Kent Barnhart bring to the stage more than 50 songs made famous by The Chairman of the Board. Broadway hits such as "Luck Be a Lady," "Come Fly With Me," and "I Get a Kick Out of You" and combined with standards "It Had to Be You," "You Make Me Feel So Young," and "Bewitched" has the patrons wanting to sing along. Before the song, "High Hope" concludes Barnhart provides the audience an opportunity to participate in a rare moment, singing along with the performers.
Daugharthy performs a rendition of the Bobby Darin classic, "Mack the Knife" that examiner.com describes as "I am an avid golfer; the best way for me to describe his performance is that it was the Tiger Woods of vocals."
All Sinatra continues on the stage of the Quality Hill Playhouse, 303 W. 10th in Kansas City, Mo. through March 9. Discounts on the $32 ticket price are available for students, seniors, and groups. To purchase tickets call the box office at 816-421-1700 or visit the Quality Hill Playhouse website.
