He was called The Voice, The Chairman of the Board, Old Blue Eyes, The Sultan of Swoon, and One of the greatest performers of all time. He recorded more than 3,000 songs in his 50-plus year career, and his name is synonymous with Las Vegas, great music, and romantic tunes. The legendary Frank Sinatra gets a tip of the hat (or fedora) in an all-new musical revue that has been winning awards and breaking box office records around the country.
My WayA Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra will be performed at the Jubilee Theatre at the Clock Tower, the first in the Chicago area to obtain rights to this classy, sassy and brassy new show. It is scheduled to open Feb. 6 and run through May 30.
Featuring an on-stage combo and a cast of two men and two women, the two-hour show takes audiences on a sentimental journey through 57 Sinatra classics including The Lady Is A Tramp, My Kind of Town, New York, New York, My Funny Valentine, Night And Day, I Get A Kick Out of You, Fly Me to the Moon, The Way You Look Tonight, Strangers in the Night, Thats Life, Young at Heart, Witchcraft, High Hopes and many more. It is important to note that My Way is not an imitation show, but rather a high-energy and sophisticated salute to the man and his music.
The Jubilee Theatre production of My WayA Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra stars four stage veterans who handle the singing, dancing, and patter for the show. With Broadway credits to his name (Cats, A Chorus Line) as well as numerous national tours (most recently, Show Boat), Phil Masterton joins the Jubilee family of performers for My Way.
With many local shows to her credit, a choreographer and accomplished dancer and performer, Carm Rongere lends her talents to the show as well. Debbi Torri returns to the Jubilee following her successful turn as The Rhinestone Cowgirl in the theaters fall production of Hot Country Nights. She has appeared in countless productions in Chicago and the Midwest, including tours such as I Do! I Do! Rounding out the cast is Don Grant Zelmer, who in his 35 years as a professional in the entertainment industry, has taken him from Vegas shows to Branson, Mo., countless legitimate theater roles, film, and now serves as the producer of the Jubilee Theatre.
