This dynamic show full of fun and foot-tapping excellence includes his signature songs like My Way, New York New York, Lady Is A Tramp, and Mack The Knife as well as other Sinatra hits such as Witchcraft, All the Way and One More For the Road. A moving and intimate story links the songs bringing them to life and making us better acquainted with “the Chairman of the Board”.
