If you think you've seen the Rat Pack, it's not until you indulge in Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show that you begin to realize why his personal connection to these icons allow him to tell this story unlike anyone else. Chosen personally by Joey Bishop ("I wish I had been that good," Bishop says), only producer/performer Sandy Hackett brings to life the nonstop party that was the Rat Pack with such authenticity. This acclaimed production includes the classic songs everyone knows and loves as well as never before heard songs written by the late, legendary Ron Miller, and recorded voice-overs made exclusively for this show by Sandy's father, the late, legendary comedian, Buddy Hackett. The San Francisco Examiner writes "The interpretations by the actors capture the stage essences of the Rat Pack members in a way that is eerily supernatural."

The first collaboration for Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's, OKLAHOMA! opened on Broadway in 1943 and ran for more than 2000 performances, setting standards of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in Oklahoma territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, Will Parker, a fun-loving steer roper and Ado Annie, a love-hungry flirt play out their love stories. That they will succeed in making new lives together we have no doubt, and that these new lives will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! Songs include "People Will Say We're in Love," "I Can't Say No," "The Surrey With the Fringe on Top," and "Out of My Dreams." The show was based on the play "Green Grow the Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs and included original dances by Agnes de Mille.

Special Offer: Buy the same seat for Lend Me A Tenor and Oklahoma! for Two-Show Deal Savings!

The three-time Tony Award winning farce Lend Me A Tenor by Ken Ludwig was a sensation on Broadway (twice!), in London's West End and this summer hits the Jersey Shore. This madcap, screwball comedy leaves audiences teary-eyed with laughter. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he's dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli's Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.
