NEW YORK (AP) — A new jukebox stage musical about the life of Frank Sinatra is in the works.
The late singer’s family has teamed up with the Ambassador Theatre Group and movie producer Stewart Till to tell the story of the man nicknamed the Chairman of the Board. Backers hope it will be ready in 2018.
The musical will feature a number of songs from Sinatra’s incredible catalogue, which includes “Night and Day,” ”My Way,” ”Young at Heart,” ”Strangers in the Night,” ”One for My Baby,” ”How About You?” ”Day by Day,” and “Come Fly With Me.”
