Production images have been released for the upcoming return of The Rat Pack – Live From Las Vegas, playing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from the 13th December.
The Olivier nominated production returns to its original West End home at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from next week for a strictly limited season.
At the start of the 1960s, The Rat Pack led by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. were the toast of Las Vegas. With the world’s rich and famous jetting in to see them joke around and sing some of the finest songs ever written, the guys also starred together in a series of glamorous Hollywood films, set fashion trends, rubbed shoulders with the US President, politicians and mobsters… and partied hard as the coolest cats on the planet. The Rat Pack – Live from Las Vegas recreates that special time. Prepare to drift back in time to an era of glitzy nights spent on the Vegas strip in the company of three of the world’s most popular entertainers. This spectacular production – with a very special Christmas theme until 6 January – celebrates the incredible singing talent of three world-famous entertainers and performers and some of the finest music and song that has ever been recorded.
Directed and choreographed by Mitch Sebastian, the cast for this new West End run is set to star Garrett Phillips as Frank Sinatra, Nigel Casey (Dean Martin), David Hayes (Sammy Davis Jr), with Joanna Walters, Amelia Adams-Pearce, Rebecca Parker and Laura Darton as The Burrelli Sisters.
Meanwhile, from the 9th January Nicola Emmanuelle will join the cast to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald. Songs featured in this special edition of the production will include Night and Day, The Lady is a Tramp, Mack the Knife and S’Wonderful.
