The Rat Pack
Norwich Theatre Royal
> Norwich Theatre Royal
I did it my way. A philosophy for the generation who grew up with the Rat Pack.
Songs like That's Life, That's Amore, Fly Me to the Moon, Chicago, New York ... are the soundtrack of the 1950s and most of the '60s.
In the company of talented performers, unmistakable music, cool dance moves, it wasn't hard to imagine being at The Sands, Las Vegas.

It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing. They swung.
The 15-piece band on stage, and musical director Colin Campbell were formidable.
Nigel Casey, as Martin, had the edge on the jokes (and it's a pity that Norfolk's own Phil Barley was not playing tonight) but Allie Laurie as Davis Jnr was a fireball of energy and his Mr Beaujangles was near perfect. Henry Prego as Sinatra was the
Leader and the three men worked in harmony allowing banter, jokes on women, booze and race to reveal a
fascinating insight into their relationship.
A night to remember, foot-tapping, body-warming classy show - pure style and cool sophistication.
