Tacoma Musical Playhouse (TMP) announces its third musical of the season for their 2017/18 season, “My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra.”
Experience the man dubbed The Voice, The Sultan of Swoon, The Chairman of the Board and Ol’ Blue Eyes. In his time, Frank Sinatra was called the greatest singer of the popular song. These are all nicknames for one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century, a man whose career successes spanned more than 50 years, enjoying popularity with each successive generation.
Legendary singer, actor and producer Sinatra was one of the best-selling musical artists of all time. Songs like “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Strangers in the Night” still resonate with a crowd today. “My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra” is a tribute to the musical legend containing 56 songs, both iconic and lesser-known, that are sung by a spectacular cast of four men and four women in a jazz club setting. Get ready to end the night singing, dancing and feeling grand after seeing “My Way!”
