TexARTS Sets Cast of MY WAY, A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO FRANK SINATRA

TexARTS opens its 2016-17 Professional Series with a tribute to Frank Sinatra. Starring Leslie Hollingsworth (TexARTS' I'll Be Seeing You), Matt Harris Andersen, Michael Marchese (TexARTS' A Cool Yule) and Megan Richards Wright (Zach Theatre A Christmas Carol), My Way runs July 15 - 24 at the Kam and James Morris Theatre.

This musical was created by David Grapes and Todd Olson, based on Todd Olson's book. The show is full of the songs, dances, and humorous stories of Frank Sinatra's career that spanned more than 50 years. It includes those smooth, toe-tapping melodies from songs like The Lady is a Tramp, New York, New York, and I've Got You Under My Skin. The production is a celebration of an American icon that takes the audience from the swinging era, to the "Rat Pack" years in Las Vegas, and beyond.

"TexARTS assembled an enormously talented group of singers who will delight audiences with their renditions of Sinatra classics," said Jarret Mallon, Executive Director of TexARTS.

Audiences will remember Leslie Hollingsworth who starred in I'll Be Seeing You at TexARTS. She was also nominated by the Austin Critics Table Awards in 2014-15 for Best Actress in a Musical for Chicago at Half and Half Productions, Matt Harris Andersen who performed in Love's Labours Lost at the Michigan Shakespeare Festival, Michael Marchese has performed in A Cool Yule at TexARTS and James and the Giant Peach at Zach Theatre, and Megan Richards Wright who performed in James and the Giant Peach and A Christmas Carol at Zach Theatre.

TexARTS is excited to welcome the director from last summer's smash hit Ring Of Fire Sarah Gay. In 2015, she was nominated for Best Direction of a Musical for Ring Of Fire from the Central Texas Excellence in Theatre Awards. Musical director John Vander Gheynst was nominated by the Austin Critics Table Awards for Musical Direction for Chicago at Half and Half Productions in 2014-15 and for Hairspray at Zach Theatre in 2015-16. Also bringing Sinatra's world to life will be costume coordinator Sarah Gay, scenic designer Teena Sauvola, lighting designer Moses Parks, and property designer Andrew Hatcher, stage manager Laura Walberg.
