Sinatra The Musical on Broadway Background
Sinatra the Musical is a bio-musical, which follows the life and works of the multi-talented and legendary crooner, Frank Sinatra. Sinatra was a handsome, confident high achiever, who is also a best-selling musical artist and an Oscar and Golden Globe winning actor. While this is the first appearance of this show on Broadway, there have been other similar Broadway performances and Broadway-like renditions of his works. Those have included; Come Fly Away which was a 2010 Broadway musical that featured Sinatra’s greatest hits. The Sinatra family would only allow the show to go ahead if no spoken words were used and his songs were set to amazing choreography to make up for the indiscernible narrative. My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra has been performed across the US at various theaters and clubs and My Kind of Broadway is a 1965 studio album produced and sung by the legend himself, which features various songs from famous Broadway musicals. This new show is written by Danny Strong an up-and-coming screenplay writer and an Emmy Award winning actor himself.
What’s Sinatra The Musical Like?
Sinatra The Musical follows the late and great Frank Sinatra through his years. Starting out as a boy growing up in the rough neighborhoods in Hoboken, New Jersey with his Italian mother and father, to his outstanding and legendary singing and acting career and his ultimate path to fame and fortune in Los Angeles. The show features his most famous hits such as; New York, New York, My Way and Fly Me to the Moon, while it delivers a strong narrative of hard work and determination against the odds. The show picks up on his questionable relationship with the mafia, his bitterness towards his hometown of Hoboken and his estranged relationships with the ten women in his life, four of whom were his ex-wives Nancy Barbato, Ava Gardner, Mia Farrow and Barbara Marx. The show is more than just a jukebox musical as the producer refused to leave out the hard hitting details of Sinatra’s life and the show has a better storyline than many of its musical predecessors on Broadway.
