Last night my husband and I experienced pure magic at the Fabulous Fox Theatre here in St. Louis. Serious magic and not of the magician kind. The Rat Pack Is Back magically takes the audience back to a simpler time. One that will be remembered for years to come.
The Rat Pack Is Back At The Fabulous Fox
I think it’s fitting that the show The Rat Pack Is Back is indeed back at the Fox. In the 80’s and 90’s, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr. actually gave performances at our fine theatre. As it seems, the Variety Series was very similar to what my husband and I were pleased to experience.
What to expect from The Rat Pack Is Back:
Young and old will truly appreciate the music, comedy and legends that come with this enjoyable show. Those who lived during the time of the talented Rat Pack, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin – so named by the media of the 1960’s, will relive the splendor of days gone by. A younger generation will be amazed by the era that was missed.
Frank Sinatra, played by Chris Jason
While Chris Jason doesn’t have the exact look of Old Blue Eyes, his voice is quite deceiving. If you close your eyes, you will truly believe that it’s Frank singing on stage before you. Chris Evans belting out My Way gave me serious chills.
Sammy Davis, Jr., Kenny Jones
Kenny Jones had everything down to a tee. From Sammy’s mannerisms and dance stylings to his unique sound and happy attitude, you can tell Kenny Jones was portraying one of his great idols.
Dean Martin, played by Drew Anthony
On stage Drew Anthony is the spitting image of Dean Martin. His go with the flow attitude is full of charisma very much like that of Mr. Dean Martin. Just another reason why this trio makes you think that you are truly watching the late greats.
More about The Rat Pack Is Back
Be prepared to be wowed with both musical talent and comedy. You’ll experience musical acts and comedy styles that were well loved in the 50’s and 60’s. It was a different time and many of the jokes wouldn’t be acceptable today. In fact, it very much goes against the grain for all things politically correct in today’s day and age, but as Frank kept reminding the audience at the Fox, “Tonight it’s 1960.”
The entire theatre loved going back in time.
The show is also spellbinding with a 12-piece orchestra and the musical talent of Joelle Jenson as Barbie the Bunny.
I hope you enjoy the show as much as we did. It’s one that my husband and I would both enjoy seeing again and again. Tickets are still available HERE.
