The Rat Pack Is Back

As of now, what happens in Vegas no longer stays in Vegas -- it's at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-1111 or www.fabulousfox.com). Frank Sinatra famously sang that he did it "My Way," and the guys taking center stage for the musical The Rat Back Is Back do it his way too. The legendary big-band bombast and banter that Frank, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop immortalized during their stint in the Copa Room at the historic "Summit at the Sands" has been meticulously re-created to transport audiences back to the defining days of Las Vegas, when the kings of cool lounged about onstage with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m. Sunday (May 15 to 17). Tickets are $35 to $80.
Fri., May 15, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 16, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sun., May 17, 1 p.m., 2015
