'The Rat Pack is Back' at Miller Auditorium
March 3, 2010
KALAMAZOO--Experience the glitz and allure of classic Vegas with "The Rat Pack is Back," at Western Michigan University Friday and Saturday, March 19-20. Both shows start at 8 p.m. in the University's Miller Auditorium.
This spirited tribute recreates one of the famous "Summit at the Sands" hotel shows, when the swinging group known as the "Rat Pack" was creating pop legend with a free-wheeling, no-holds-barred nightclub act starring Vegas' four favorite sons: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.
The show features Bishop's hilarious comedy and performances of such standards as Sinatra's "You Make Me Feel So Young" and "A Foggy Day," Martin's "That's Amore" and Davis' "Mr. Bojangles." Backing the singers is a swinging 12-piece live orchestra performing period-perfect orchestrations.
"The Rat Pack is Back" unites Mickey Joseph, appearing as Joey Bishop; Drew Anthony, appearing as Dean Martin; Kenny Jones, appearing as Sammy Davis Jr.; and Brian Duprey, appearing as Frank Sinatra. It is produced by Dick Feeney (Viva Las Vegas, Showgirls, The Great Gleason).
