Rat Pack swing by Hertford Theatre

21:34 14 March 2012

START spreading the news... The Rat Pack Is Back in the county.

Britain’s longest running tribute show to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr arrives at Hertford Theatre this Friday night.

According to Nancy Sinatra, the daughter of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra tribute act David Alacey’s rendition of New York, New York is ‘far too close for comfort’.

And soap fans will recognise Des Coleman, who tours as Sammy Davis Jnr, from EastEnders. He played Lenny in the BBC soap.

The original Rat Pack were the definition of cool during their 50s and 60s Vegas heyday.

Sinatra, Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr, collectively known as the Rat Pack, combined the sound of swing with charisma, panache and swagger. The trio had attitude to spare.

New York, New York is just one of 150 world-famous songs the show can draw from in its set list.

Thus, just like Frank, Dean and Sammy in their prime, The Rat Pack Is Back is spontaneous, with performers responding to audience requests.

The show includes all the razzmatazz of the Rat Pack’s infamous live stage show and one lucky lady in the audience will even have the chance to replace Nancy by joining Frank on stage for the hit duet Somethin’ Stupid.

Tickets cost £17 and the show starts at 7.45pm.
