THE timeless appeal of Dean, Sammy and Frank will fill MK Theatre tomorrow evening, when The Rat Pack return.
This is a show that oozes class and style. Well, it’s got to be authentic, after all.
You’ll take a seat in the theatre district location, but will soon be transported to the Las Vegas of days gone by, when glamour and glitz was in abundance.
Inhale deeply, and you can almost smell the cigars!
Song-wise, you know exactly what’s on the menu here – classic after another will roll: Under My Skin, Lady Is A Tramp, That’s Amore, Mack The Knife and so many more, like the exceptional Davis Jr delivery Mr Bojangles, and Sinatra’s ace Come Fly With Me...although when that track was picked up by ITV’s ‘reality’ series Airport for its soundtrack, it kind of killed that one for us a little.
Still if anyone can replace the memories of annoying airport staff with those of the classy crooner, it’s the fella’s at the microphones for this show.
The Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular Show will begin at 7.30pm tomorrow evening, ticket prices start at £17, rising to £21 and rumour has it that Marilyn Monroe is a late addition to the billing...
There are some ‘free child’* tickets available too, so ask about those when booking.
*To clarify: You won’t be given an ankle-biter for attending!
> THOSE of you who were dazzled by Midnight Tango at MK T a couple of weeks back, may fancy yourselves as fledgling Flavia and Vincent’s.
