Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, and Sammy Davis, Jr? Yep! That’s right the gang is all here! The Rat Pack is Back has taken over the stage of Mesa Arts Center and Phoenix’s Orpheum Theatre this week. The show hit the stage in on Main Street in Mesa and this weekend can be seen in Phoenix through Sunday.
For this week’s Feature Friday we wanted to share videos from some of the men’s appearances from this week!
The Rat Pack stopped by the Fox 10 Morning Show on Tuesday and had quite a fun time messing around with the hosts Rick D’Amico and Andrea Robinson, check out the guys below!
The men also had a visit over to Sonoran Living and spent some time trying to woo the lovely Ms. Andi Barness…
Yes, as a matter of fact, Dean Martin did try to ask Andi out after the segment was over, these guys don’t break character at all!
In “The Rat Pack is Back”, Frank, Sammy, Joey and Dean are back and doing it “just one more time.” What ensues is an uncanny recreation of one of the Rat Pack’s raucous, antic-filled performances, featuring Bishop’s hilarious comedy and performances of timeless standards including Sinatra’s “You Make Me Feel So Young” and “A Foggy Day,” Martin’s “That’s Amoré” and Davis’ “Mr. Bojangles” – all with the backing of a swinging 12-piece live orchestra performing period perfect orchestrations.
If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, head into Downtown Phoenix and catch one of their shows!
There are matinees and evening shows throughout the weekend, for tickets you can go straight to the box office or check out www.theaterleague.com
