Jeff Harnar presents his critically acclaimed show, SAMMY CAHN ALL THE WAY: SINATRA, HOLLYWOOD & WORLD WAR II, with Music Director ALEX RYBECK and directed by BARRY KLEINBORT.
The show shines a special spotlight on Sammy Cahn’s lyrics for Sinatra, Hollywood and World War II. Featured songs include: “All The Way,” “Teach Me Tonight,” “Call Me Irresponsible,” “My Kind of Town (Chicago Is),” “I Fall in Love Too Easily,” “Saturday Night (Is the Loneliest Night of the Week),” and “Time After Time.”
“Highly Recommended. Smart, entertaining…Mr. Harnar’s singing is as creamy as ever. But this crooner has developed enough of a swagger to give the Sinatra swingers the punch they need.” -The New York Times
