David Cassidy's The Rat Pack is Back! Has Closed

The Rat Pack is Back! at The Supper Club has been closed "due to unforeseen and irreconcilable circumstances on both artistic and managerial levels" by RPIB, Inc.

The musical began preview performances on Thursday, November 17th at The Supper Club (240 West 47th Street) where it played eight (8) performances and received audience acclaim. The Rat Pack is Back! was scheduled to open on Monday, December 19th. Co-written by David Cassidy and Don Reo, the musical production starred Julian Rebolledo (
as Dean), Eric Jordan Young (as Sammy), Michael Civisca (as Frank) and Mark Cohen (as Joey), with a special appearance by Cassidy ("The Partridge Family," Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Blood Brothers).

The show was set during one imaginary martini-drenched night (December 12, 1961 - Frank's 46th birthday) during which Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop perform and celebrate on stage in Las Vegas. "Their relationship with the blues is as sensually intimate as is their white-hot obsession with jazz," state press notes. The songs they are singing are theirs; they have made them internationally famous -- "Luck Be a Lady Tonight, "One for The Road," The Lady is a Tramp," "What Kind of Fool Am I," "The Lady is a Tramp," Mr. Bojangles," "Birth of the Blues," "Volare," "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You." The show's dancing and humor is as legendary as it's songs are. Their friend and protégé is a rock idol named Bobby. He joins the celebration and serenades the birthday boy with some of his hits including "Mack the Knife and "Beyond the Sea."

The Rat Pack is Back opened at The Desert Inn in Las Vegas on July 18th, 1999 playing to sellout audiences for one year. It then moved to the Sahara Hotel & Casino on Saturday, March 25th, 2000 where it was a hit for the next three years.

No further information on the closing is currently available.
