Twyla Tharp working on Frank Sinatra musical
'Come Fly With Me' to use more than a dozen Sinatra vocalsNEW YORK -- American musical theater's latest collaborators -- Twyla Tharp and Frank Sinatra.
Atlanta's Alliance Theatre says it will present "Come Fly With Me" -- a new musical conceived, directed and choreographed by Tharp. The show, which concerns four couples who fall in and out of love, uses more than a dozen classic Sinatra vocals backed by an onstage 17-piece band.
"Come Fly With Me" will open Sept. 23 in Atlanta for a run through Oct. 11. Previews begin Sept. 15. A Broadway-bound tour will go out on the road next summer.
