Sinatra The Musical

This event has passed

Slick, sexy, and spectacular…”

It is New Year’s Eve, 1942, and a skinny 27-year-old Italian-American singer is about to step onto the stage of New York’s Paramount Theatre and give a performance that will change music history. As Frank Sinatra’s career suddenly skyrockets, he struggles with balancing the love of his wife, Nancy, against the demands and temptations of being the most popular singer in America. But when he begins a torrid affair with movie goddess Ava Gardner, his records stop selling and the press turns against him, sending his career into a tailspin. Driven by his devotion to his family, Sinatra employs his peerless artistry and dogged determination to stage the greatest comeback in showbiz history.

Bursting with glamour and glitz”

This latest Rep production is brought to the stage by a world class creative team including writer and two-time Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro (What’s New Pussycat? and Memphis) and Olivier Award-winner and three-time Tony Award-winner, Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes and The Pajama Game).

The first show of its kind to explore Frank’s life off stage and on, discover stories you don’t yet know, alongside songs you love, in this world premiere musical about his renowned life and enduring legacy.
