The Rat Pack is back with a specially Xmas-themed show at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket.
At the start of the ’60s, The Rat Pack, led by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr were the toast of Las Vegas.
The world’s rich and famous used to jet in to see them in cabaret, joking around and singing some of the finest songs ever written.
The guys also starred together in a series of glamorous Hollywood films, set fashion trends, rubbed shoulders with the US President, politicians and mobsters… and partied hard as the coolest cats on the planet.
The Rat Pack – Live from Las Vegas recreates that special time.
From December 13 to January 6 the show will have a Christmas theme and will include the Pack’s unique take on festive classics like Baby It’s Cold Outside, Merry Little Christmas, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Jingle Bells and Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow.
The show turns back the clock to an era of glitzy nights spent on the Vegas strip in the company of three of the world’s most popular entertainers.
