Sinatra Raw

  • Show Information

Written and performed by Richard Shelton
Richard Shelton’s masterful show revealing the man behind the music tours following a sold-out West End season.
You are invited to Palm Springs, California, 1971. Frank Sinatra faces retirement. The air is electric and the crowd jockey for position at Sinatra’s last intimate show. But times are changing as the Rolling Stones and David Bowie dominate the charts. Sinatra’s blue eyes are bloodshot and his face craggy with booze, cigarettes and memories. Things take an unexpected turn when he drinks One for My Baby too many.
This is the 2am Sinatra you dream of meeting. Dangerous. Unpredictable. Brilliant.
‘Shelton’s splendidly tough yet laid-back, authentic performance’ The Times
‘Shelton as Sinatra is quite simply phenomenal’ ***** Mike Young, BBC
‘Singing the hits with style, Sinatra is marvellously played’ Daily Telegraph
