The celebrated West End production of the Olivier Award-nominated The Rat Pack – Live from Las Vegas, returns to the Theatre Royal, Haymarket – home to its first West End run in 2003 – for a strictly limited season from Wednesday 13 December – Saturday 3 February.
At the start of the 1960s, The Rat Pack led by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. were the toast of Las Vegas. With the world’s rich and famous jetting in to see them joke around and sing some of the finest songs ever written, the guys also starred together in a series of glamorous Hollywood films, set fashion trends, rubbed shoulders with the US President, politicians and mobsters… and partied hard as the coolest cats on the planet. The Rat Pack – Live from Las Vegas recreates that special time. Prepare to drift back in time to an era of glitzy nights spent on the Vegas strip in the company of three of the world’s most popular entertainers.
The cast features Garrett Phillips as Frank Sinatra, Nigel Casey (Dean Martin), David Hayes (Sammy Davis Jr), with Joanna Walters, Amelia Adams-Pearce, Rebecca Parker and Laura Darton as The Burrelli Sisters.
Musical Director of the 12-piece Rat Pack Big Band is Matthew Freeman.
Nicola Emmanuelle will also join the show from Tuesday January 9 to celebrate the 100th anniversay of the birth of the First Lady of Song and Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald. Songs featured in this special edition of the production will include Night and Day, The Lady is a Tramp, Mack the Knife and S’Wonderful.
From 13 December to 6 January, The Rat Pack – Live from Las Vegas – devised, directed and choreographed by Mitch Sebastian – will have a Christmas theme with the Pack’s unique take on such festive classics as Baby It’s Cold Outside, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Jingle Bells and Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow.
