star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar rating

This dazzling new dance musical deploys a stage full of brilliant performers to heighten the theatrical allure of ballroom dance, complementing the immortal appeal of Sinatra's singing

Charles Isherwood, New York Times

Closed 1 Oct 2010

Twyla Tharp matches her choreography to the mood and emotion of a host of Sinatra songs - sung by the Chairman of the Board backed by an onstage band.

 

COME FLY AWAY follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song and dance filled evening at a crowded nightclub.

Blending the legendary vocals of Frank Sinatra with a live on stage 19-piece big band and 15 of the world's finest dancers, COME FLY AWAY weaves an unparalleled hit parade of classics, including "Fly Me To The Moon," "My Way," and "That's Life" into a soaring musical fantasy of romance and seduction.

The show's score combines classic and newly discovered vocal performances from the Sinatra archives along with signature arrangements (Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Quincy Jones) as well as brand new charts for this fresh innovative musical.
