Frank Sinatra — lived on Valley View Lane in Toluca Lake in the 1940s!
Frank Sinatra had his own booth at the SmokeHouse in Burbank!
And now thru the magic of theater for just 17 performances the historic El Portal Theatre in NoHo proudly presents Christmas My Way, A Sinatra Holiday Bash!
“The Brat Pack” consists of four great performers — a jazz trio and a ton of Sinatra standards for both the holidays and other days of the year.
The perfect way to celebrate a swinging holiday season is with Christmas My Way, A Sinatra Holiday Bash playing at El Portal Theatre Dec. 13-31. The show has over 40 of Old Blue Eye’s favorites and holiday songs sung by four great musical performers: Luca Ellis (the “Sinatra guy” from Hoboken to Hollywood and Bar 1912 at the Beverly Hills Hotel), Broadway stars Heather Lee and Beth Malone, and the hilarious international star Jason Graae. The show was written by well-known playwrights David Grapes and Todd Olson and directed by David Grapes. Musical Director is Vince di Mura, renowned jazz artist and arranger. (Please Google them all for more impressive credits!)
Joined by a swingin’ live band, they make a little hey-hey with groovy versions of such Sinatra Christmas hits like “Mistletoe and Holly,” “The Christmas Song,” “Christmas Memories,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Silver Bells,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” Toss in Rat Pack-ish versions of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” Christmas My Way invites you to grab your bird, jingle your bells, pour a good stiff egg nog, and have yourself a merry little Christmas NOW baby!
Perfect for holiday gift giving, perfect for holiday family get-togethers, and perfect for office parties.
There are even two fun-filled shows on New Year’s Eve with post-show parties to ring-a-ding-ding in 2013!
