My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra

By David Grapes & Todd Oldson

Directed by Frank Peot

The Voice, The Sultan of Swoon, The Chairman of the Board, Ol' Blue Eyes, The Greatest Singer of the Popular Song, these are all nicknames for one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century, a man whose career successes spanned more than 50 years, enjoying popularity with each successive generation. My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra conceived and written by David Grapes and Todd Olson is a loving, lyrical homage to the man, his time and his music. The show is organized into song medleys grouped by theme. In between, brief narratives offer background snippets and anecdotes about Sinatra’s life. Overall, the mood conveys a relaxed ambiance dripping with sophistication and class. In keeping with the gist of the evening and the music, there’s plenty of dancing -- waltzes, foxtrots, even some jitterbug. Every number feels fresh and different. There is also plenty of opportunity for the audience to hum, tap toes, even sing along. When the quartet launches into "New York, New York," complete with Sinatra’s signature fedora and some Fosse-esque choreography, the entire crowd indulges in one massive, collective grin.
