As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock gets to hang out with Frank Sinatra… in the form of Richard Shelton’s acclaimed new one-man play with (Ol’ Blue Eyes’ legendary) music Sinatra: Raw. Got any questions?
After my recent event to The Crown Dual, I’ll return to Wilton’s Music Hall for another James Seabright Production coming to London following a smash at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe… an absolute must-see for fans of Frank Sinatra!
In Sinatra: Raw, you are invited to Palm Springs, California, 1971. Frank Sinatra faces retirement. The air is electric and the crowd jockey for position at Sinatra’s last intimate show. But times are changing as the Rolling Stones and David Bowie dominate the charts.
Sinatra’s blue eyes are bloodshot and his face craggy with booze, cigarettes and memories. Things take an unexpected turn when he drinks One for My Baby too many. This is the 2am Sinatra you dream of meeting. Dangerous. Unpredictable. Brilliant.
This masterful show, written and performed by Richard Shelton, reveals the man behind the music. Following a sell-out West End stint, extensive tour and success at this year’s Edinburgh Festival,Sinatra: Raw returns to London for a limited season at Wilton’s Music Hall.
Richard Shelton is one of the world’s most acclaimed Sinatra interpreters. Cast as Sinatra in the hard-hitting drama Rat Pack Confidential in the West End, his gritty portrayal won Shelton a Best Actor in a Leading Role nomination from the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards and international acclaim.
After the opening performance of Sinatra: Raw at Wilton’s Music Hall on Tuesday 22 October 2019, I’ll be joined by Richard Shelton to discuss his journey with the show and Frank Sinatra’s legacy. Any questions? Join us!
