Premier Event at the Diana Wortham Theatre

Here, in a special tribute, TV Personality and International Recording Artist Timothy O’Keefe  offers a fascinating and entertaining look at the life of Frank Sinatra — the singer, the actor and the man. You will visit his most powerful, productive and provocative time, 1953 to 1961, the years he recorded with Capitol Records and established himself as one of the most recognizable personalities on the planet.

This is not an impersonator or lookalike show, but an affectionate musical and biographical look into one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th Century by what the CHICAGO TRIBUNE  labeled, “…A WORLD CLASS SINGER.”

Timothy along with Russ Wilson and his Orchesta will take you through works of Cole Porter, the Gershwins, Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Huesen, Rodgers and Hart, Jules Styne and many others — musical giants who helped shape the body of work that made Francis Albert Sinatra so popular.

You’ll take a voyage through Frank’s life; his fall from grace — his amazing recovery in FROM HERE TO ETERNITY — the beginning of Las Vegas — the birth of an artistic union with Nelson Riddle that survived over four decades — the making of a major film star — the Rat Pack — superstardom and, of course, we can’t forget Ava.
