The Sands hotel was the very height of Las Vegas sophistication. It
was there in 1960, during the filming of Ocean’s Eleven, when for the
first time Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr, Joey Bishop,
and Peter Lawford performed together on stage. From then on, they were
forever known as the Rat Pack. Las Vegas was their playground and
everywhere else was known, in Rat Pack vocabulary, as ‘Dullsville,
Ohio’. Frank, Sammy & Dean were a force to be reckoned with, an
inexhaustible energy that is as apparent in their music today as it
ever was. This spectacular production celebrates the incredible
singing talent of three world-famous entertainers and performers and
some of the finest music and song that has ever been recorded.
