Frankly Frank Las Vegas Show Review
Get thrown back in time when you go watch and listen to the tribute Las Vegas show Frankly Frank Las Vegas, which highlights the fabulous career of one of Sin City’s greatest performers and loved icons, Frank Sinatra.
Frankly Frank Las Vegas showcases the career of Frank Sinatra who first performed in Las Vegas at the Desert Inn in 1951 and is ideal for anyone who relishes the past of great voices and superb performers. Starring Gary Anthony as Frank Sinatra, Frankly Frank takes you back to the glitzy glory days of Glitter Gulch.
The 65-minute show at the Pegasus Showroom offers everything about Frank Sinatra’s life from his early days in New York and New Jersey to his later days performing with the infamous Rat Pack, who ruled the Strip while making being cool a household attitude around the country. During the production, Gary Anthony brings all the swagger, attitude, crooning, and stage presence that has you thinking you’re listening and watching the original Chairman of the Board.
The production by Executive Producer Pete Housely, offers a simple stage setup with a live band accompanying Anthony on stage which is ideal for showcasing the best songs from Mr. Blue Eyes fruitful career. Your ears are graced with a perfect rendition of many of Sinatra’s most famous songs from Luck Be a Lady to Fly Me to the Moon to That’s Life and when Anthony croons out Stranger’s In the Night, the crowd is absolutely stunned with the likeness and voice of Frank Sinatra. But that’s not all because when he starts singing New York New York, the audience stands and sings in unison bellowing out the words along with him.
There is not a lot of choreography during the production, other than Anthony in an elegantly tailored suit, but that is what you would expect from a tribute show that highlights the music of one of the performers that made Las Vegas The Entertainment Capital of the World. Throughout the show, Anthony interjects some witty commentary about Sinatra’s days of playing with the Rat Pack, aspects of Sinatra’s relationships, how he got his start in the business, and why Sinatra always loved performing in Sin City.
After enjoying the performance by Gary Anthony throughout Frankly Frank, I would think even Sinatra would be proud of how Anthony portrays him onstage because according to Mr. Blue Eyes himself, That’s Life and I always did it My Way.
