We saw the Rat Pack tribute last week 8/22/2006

It was a pretty good show - basically it's an hour and a half of people acting (and supposedly singing) like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop. We were given accessible seats in the theater, but they weren't that accessible. We had to get my wife out of the wheelchair and into a seat because the wheelchair could not be maneuvered into a view of the stage. I did enjoy the show. it was written by Sandy Hackett, son of the late Buddy Hackett. Sandy portrayed Joey Bishop. The best voice belonged to the actor who portrayed Sammy Davis. The actor portraying Sinatra had a solid voice and was pretty good with the mannerisms. I didn't like the Dean Martin actor. he didn't have much of a singing voice and it seemed like the part he was portraying wasn't really singing seriously. The Joey Bishop part wasn't all that funny, but sometimes Joey wasn't all that funny. The instrumental musicians were wonderful. So, we all hgad a very good time. Having the cast shake hands with the attendees on the way out was a bonus. It was a pretty sparse crowd (maybe 40% full, not including the balcony) for a name Chicago theater on a Saturday night. more
