Photo Coverage: Robert Davi Makes His Royal Room Debut at The Colony Hotel
Tough guy Robert Davi, one of the most recognizable actors on the planet made his Colony Hotel Royal Room debut last night and BroadwayWorld was there. The tough guy charmed the tough Palm Beach audience with his Sinatra style singing and persona. Check out photos below!
In his show Robert Davi Sings Sinatra, but Davi is not Sinatra, he has his own unique well trained rugged voice. However, Davi has the same edgy but mellow persona that keeps you hanging on every move and sound he makes. Robert Davi studied acting under the legendary Stella Adler at the world-renowned Actors Studio. As the indelible villain Franz Sanchez in the James Bond film Licence to Kill to more recent film and television appearances, he has thrilled audiences. He appeared opposite Marlon Brando in Christopher Columbus: The Discovery, Clint Eastwood in City Heat, Bruce Willis in Die Hard, and Roberto Benigni in Son of the Pink Panther. He also appeared in 88 episodes of the NBC series Profiler playing Agent Baily Malone, and as Commander Acastus Kolya on Showtime's Stargate Atlantis. Other credits includeSteven Spielberg's classic The Goonies and Raw Deal, where he first met his close friendArnold Schwarzenegger.
Davi's first passion, however, is singing. He studied under Samuel Margolis, famed singing teacher at the Metropolitan Opera, who also taught Robert Merrill, the man whoFrank Sinatra would sometimes call upon for vocal workshops. Then he studied with Daniel Ferro of Juilliard and later, opera great Tito Gobbi.
