WESTPORT - Just to make this clear, I am a huge Frank Sinatra fan. From his movies to his ability to make a song instantly recognizable as his own, Sinatra's music transcends any generation gap. His are big shoes to fill, and the Depot Theatre's cast of four theater veterans does just that in "My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra."
"My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra," created by David Grapes and Todd Olson and written by Todd Olson, commemorates the vast career of the man known around the world as "Ol' Blue Eyes." Two on-stage couples harmonize and philosophize about Sinatra's career while taking the audience on a journey through song capturing the iconic music that would define a generation. From 1940s swing music to the cities he loved, these four people celebrate Sinatra's pivotal moments through 56 of Sinatra's 1,300 recorded songs.
