Did you know that Sinatra had a Rabbi? What would have happened had Frank Sinatra followed Harry James unbelievable advice? What outrageous thing did Sinatra do to President Kennedy?
Yisrael Lutnick, the Broadway Rabbi, takes a grand look at the good, the bad and the beautiful of the Sinatra phenomenon, and he does it his way, not an impersonation, but with engaging stories, humor and poignancy.
Frank Sinatra was a bullied, somewhat awkward kid from Hoboken, NJ, an unlikely star. And yet, he became the biggest there was! He had The World on a String, and he found his way into the hearts of, well, everybody. How did he get there? What were his wrong turns, and his right ones? And what about Sinatra and the Jews?
Come Fly with Yisrael Lutnick, together with pianist Haim Tukachinsky and drummer Yair Salzman, for a journey to meet the real Ol' Blue Eyes. Thrill to the great songs, amazing stories, and life-changing Rabbinical perspectives on the 20th century's great performer. Come experience The Rabbi and The Voice, it'll Fly You To The Moon!
*The songs are in English. Dialogue in both English and Hebrew.
About the Show
"One of the reasons I loved the show as much as I did was that (Yisrael) Lutnick wasn't impersonating Sinatra! Instead, he was sharing his heart, his soul, his voice, his acting, his talent, and bringing Frank Sinatra's music alive through his gift." Kimberly Vaughn (Broadway performer, producer, director and teacher).
"(Lutnick possesses) excellent singing and acting skills .. a real stage animal." Haim Noy, The Marker.
