Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show
Vintage Las Vegas gets a stylistic reboot in Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show, which celebrates the Kings of Cool with an evening of music, comedy, and trademark swagger. Veteran performer Sandy Hackett, the son of legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, stars as Joey Bishop alongside a talented cast paying tribute to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. The show sees the dearly departed quartet returning to Earth for one last concert, featuring voiceovers from Buddy himself, tuneful favorites such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “My Way,” and never-before-heard gems from legendary songwriter Ron Miller. Miller’s daughter Lisa—the co-producer of the performance—appears on stage as well, embodying Frank’s “one true love.” In between toe-tapping refrains, the savvy foursome engages in spontaneous moments of banter and flirts with sheepish microphones.
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
