Quick Takes

Tharp on board with Sinatra

August 12, 2009|David Ng

Producers of a new stage musical set to the original vocals of Frank Sinatra said "Come Fly With Me" will run from Sept. 23 through Oct. 11 at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta and then will tour nationally next year.

Directed by Tony-winning choreographer Twyla Tharp, "Come Fly With Me" will feature original recorded masters of Sinatra's voice accompanied by a 17-piece onstage band.

The music will comprise Sinatra staples and songs from the Great American Songbook, among them "Let's Fall in Love," "Witchcraft," "Summer Wind," "Body and Soul," "That's Life," "Nice 'n' Easy" and, of course, "My Way."

The loosely plotted musical follows four couples over the course of one night as they fall in and out of love, according to producers.
