Tribute acts often eclipse their original subject, due to lack of ego, highly developed mimicry, and the high cost of disinterment.

Shades of Sinatra salutes the music and myth of one of the nation’s most beloved entertainers in a dynamic revue filled with music, laughter, and history. Starring a quartet of bona-fide singers who wring laughs and exhume smoky neon as they croon, the show charters the life of Ol’ Blue Eyes in a unique conceit, allowing four characters to interpret Frank’s legend through their eyes and larynxes. In solo showcases and rousing group numbers, each singer attacks Sinatra’s classics with epochal moxie in a set list stuffed with more than 30 ballads and swingers. In addition to the wealth of finger-popping ditties, Shades of Sinatra sees the quaternary of singers zinging each other in cuff-offing anecdotes and poignant remembrances about the man who always did it his way.
