Celebrating 50 years of The Rat Pack, Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show has been hailed as the next best thing to seeing the Rat Pack themselves.
“The interpretations by the actors capture the stage essences of the Rat Pack members in a way that is eerily supernatural.” -- San Francisco Examiner.
They were style with substance, swing with swagger and a non-stop party that everyone wanted access to. Now audiences can experience this critically acclaimed, hugely entertaining theatrical production which includes exciting new arrangements of the classic songs everyone knows and loves. In addition, audiences will hear original, never-before-heard songs written by the late, legendary songwriter, Ron Miller (“For Once In My Life”), and recorded voiceovers made exclusively for this show by Sandy Hackett’s father, the late, legendary comedian, Buddy Hackett.
With a stellar cast, Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show features performances by Sandy Hackett (Joey Bishop), a powerhouse veteran writer, producer and film & TV actor; his wife, singer/songwriter/producer and daughter of Ron Miller, Lisa Dawn Miller (Frank’s One Love); David DeCosta (Frank Sinatra); Doug Starks (Sammy Davis, Jr.); and Johnny Edwards (Dean Martin). The incomparable musical team is led by Maestro Christopher Hardin and Conductor/Pianist, Joey Singer.
“You’ll swear that the sounds of Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show have conjured up the golden era of Las Vegas” -- Robin Leach, Luxe Life
