An absolute classic, Sinatra: Raw comes to the intimate Waterfront Studio on 15 October 2019.
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.
‘Shelton’s splendidly tough yet laid back, authentic performance’ The Times
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 as Sinatra is quite simply phenomenal'
Mike Young, BBC
