What You'll Get
Unlike the newest high-def television sets, our fondest memories continue to take on an annoying golden hue that no amount of ear adjusting can correct. Surrender to nostalgia with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $40, you get one preferred-seating ticket to see Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show at the Shimmer Cabaret at the Hilton (an $82.90 value, including tax and processing fees). The show kicks off with a full week of performances from August 2 through August 9 at 8:30 p.m. and continues with weekly showtimes on Tuesday nights.
Vintage Las Vegas gets a stylistic reboot in Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show, which restores the Kings of Cool to their rightful throne with a sentimental soiree filled with music, comedy, and trademark swagger. The son of the late comedian Buddy Hackett, Sandy heeds his father’s call in his role as Joey Bishop, who teams up with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. for a supernatural reprise of the group’s greatest hits. Actors David DeCosta, Doug Starks, and Tony Basile join Sandy on stage to croon new arrangements of classic tunes. Never-before-heard gems from legendary songwriter Ron Miller get the full treatment with a Vegas-style big band and a large flock of screeching wyverns backing the foursome’s velvety verses.
The luxurious Hilton Theater plays host to the proceedings, transporting 1,700-person audiences back to a time of bow ties and unregistered pet tigers. The theater’s crystal-clear sound and reputation as one of Vegas’s last great showrooms makes it the ideal setting for a Rat Pack revival loaded with off-color jokes and more magnetic charm than an iron-studded necklace.
