‘My Way’ pays homage to Si­na­tra’s mu­sic

Palm Beach Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - By JAN SJOSTROM

Frank Si­na­tra af­firmed that he lived his life his way in the song “My Way”.

But with a ca­reer that spanned more than 50 years, his way cov­ered a lot of ground.

So does My Way: A Mu­si­cal Tribute to Frank Si­na­tra, the mu­si­cal re­vue MNM The­atre Com­pany will open Fri­day at the Kravis Cen­ter’s Rinker Play­house. The show fea­tures 56 songs from the 1,360 Si­na­tra recorded from 1939 to 1994. “He did an amaz­ing range of ma­te­rial,” said Caryl Fan­tel, the show’s mu­si­cal direc­tor and pi­anist.

In ad­di­tion to “My Way,” there’s “All the Way,” “High Hopes,” “It Was a Very Good Year,” “I’ve Got You Un­der My Skin,” “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road),” “That’s Life,” “The Lady is a Tramp” and “New York, New York.”

There’s no doubt Si­na­tra was one of the most beloved singers of the 20th cen­tury. But what made him so special?
