"One of the reasons I loved the show as much as I did was that (Yisrael) Lutnick wasn't impersonating Sinatra! Instead, he was sharing his heart, his soul, his voice, his acting, his talent, and bringing Frank Sinatra's music alive through his gift." Kimberly Vaughn (Broadway performer, producer, director and teacher).
Did you know that Sinatra had a Rabbi? What would have happened had Frank Sinatra followed Harry James unbelievable advice? What outrageous thing did Sinatra do to President Kennedy?
Join The Broadway Rabbi, Yisrael Lutnick for an unforgettable evening of song and story. This is not an impersonation of Sinatra, it is a journey to meet the real Ol' Blue Eyes through his best songs and amazing, but true, stories. And with Rabbinical commentary!
With special opening tribute to Louis Armstrong by Dr. Jazz, Elazar Brandt! Sing along with What A Wonderful World, Hello Dolly, and learn some fascinating stories about Satchmo.
"(Yisrael) looks at Frank Sinatra thorugh a Jewish lens, which makes for a fresh and fun exploration of some of the greatest songs ever written." Dan Feyer, pianist and musical director in NY.
