Music Theatre of Connecticut (MTC) presents My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra by David Grapes and Todd Olson, a musical revue featuring more than 50 songs recorded by "Old Blue Eyes" through April 17.


"There are musical legends who have made an indelible mark on our culture, and Frank Sinatra is one of them," says Kevin Connors, director of "My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra" on the MainStage. "This tribute show doesn't attempt to impersonate Sinatra, but celebrates his music and style, transporting the audience to the era of supper clubs, vintage Las Vegas and the perfect martini."


My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra includes songs like "The Best is Yet to Come," Theme from "New York, New York, "Fly Me to the Moon," "Strangers in the Night," "How About You?," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "I’ll Be Seeing You," "It Was a Very Good Year," "I’ve Got the World on a String," "Dream," "The Lady is a Tramp," "Chicago," "Let’s Get Away From It All," "Love and Marriage," "High Hopes," "One For My Baby," "All of Me," "My Funny Valentine," "Young at Heart," "Summer Wind," "That’s Life" and many more.
