Twyla Tharp will stage a Frank Sinatra birthday salute at Wynn Las Vegas with a show called “Sinatra Dance With Me” opening on Dec. 11, a day before the Chairman’s 95th birthday.
The show will be at the Encore Theater through Jan. 29. It sounds like a variation on “Come Fly Away,” Tharp’s Sinatra-themed dance musical that ran on Broadway from March through September. It shares the premise of couples falling in and out of love at a ’40s-era nightclub.
This staging will include a 17-piece big band accompanying Sinatra’s recorded voice, along with 14 dancers choreographed by Tharp.
“We will present an extraordinary evening of Frank Sinatra — his words and music set to incredible movement by Twyla Tharp. This mesmerizing treatment of the man and his music moves with an intense, electrifying fascination,” hotel chairman Steve Wynn said in a news release.
