Cary Hoffman is New York's premier Sinatra interpreter, garnering incredible critic response. 'My Sinatra' is not a Vegas-like impersonation, but rather a sincere artistic interpretation of the brilliant songs Frank Sinatra turned into American pop standards in his classic period from 1953 to the early '60s. Strung together with compelling stories about the songs, their composers, and Sinatra, this show is accompanied by a full orchestra masterfully playing transcriptions from the original Sinatra arrangers, Nelson Riddle and Billie May.
