Conceptualized by an all-star creative team, FRANK The Man, The Music has been called the most authentic re-enactment of a Frank Sinatra concert ever performed on stage (Pictured: Bob Anderson).
The show is produced by Hoboken Productions in association with Stephen Eich and stars Bob Anderson, the most revered singing impressionist in the world. It features a lush 32 piece orchestra under the direction of Sinatra’s former musical director Vincent Falcone.
With the help of Hollywood’s leading makeup artist Kazu Tsuji, Anderson takes on the appearance of Frank Sinatra. His prowess for assuming the persona and vocal styling’s of this legendary artist is the major component of this production. The original orchestrations of Sinatra’s music catalog performed with the same musical instrumentation will bring it all to life. Anderson as Sinatra stylishly leads us through the intimate execution of his craft, with chilling performances of the man who transcends all generations.
The 90 minute production depicts FRANK The Man, The Music in three distinct areas of his music; the recording studio, television specials, and personal appearances. The elegant set portrays to the audience an earlier time when glamorous nightclubs were in their heyday. This quintessential salute to the greatest singer of the 20th Century will contribute to sustain his enormous popularity, as well as the music of The Great American Songbook of which he made so famous.
“This show will give generations of music lovers around the world a chance to leave this high-tech world behind and travel back to a time circa 1970 to experience an evening unlike any other today. For those who yearn for a sophisticated Vegas music experience – at the site where the Rat Pack earned its fame – FRANK The Man, The Music is the show to attend.” – John Caparella, President and chief Operating Officer, The Venetian The Palazzo and Sands Expo.
“I have been in the entertainment business for almost 40 years performing in the finest venues all over the world. In all that time, I can’t recall anyone ever telling me they didn’t like the music of Frank Sinatra. I wouldn’t expect the average listener to understand the intricacies of his singing–they just liked what they heard. I know how great Frank Sinatra was and playing this iconic legend was a humbling and monumental experience. I tried desperately to avoid caricature. I wanted everything to be as close to reality as possible. The size and quality of the orchestra, the original arrangements, the set, the sound, the lighting and everything else had to be exquisite. I commissioned one of Hollywood’s leading makeup artists Kazu Tsuji, to turn me into Frank Sinatra. His work is extraordinary. As a result-the complete production will be out of the ordinary and unprecedented in today’s world of entertainment.” – Bob Anderson
“I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you straight out that I witnessed one of the greatest performances of an entertainer I have ever seen on the Vegas Strip the other night at the Venetian Hotel-Bob Anderson starring as Frank Sinatra.” – Norm Johnson, Las Vegas Entertainment
“Bob Anderson became Frank Sinatra. Frank would have loved this show!” – Jerry Lewis
“Nobody else could have pulled this off. Bob was magnificent. I wish Frank could have seen it.” – Steve Lawrence
