There is a group that tours and does the "Rat Pack" Tribute show to Dean, Frank and Sammy. I wonder if this is what this is and if they have booked them into the Variety Theatre for next year. Just a thought. Anyone else out there heard of this group?

It is the old Bobby Vinton Theater where Spirit of the Dance and Broadway are.

I understand that the name Branson Variety Theater was selected because they would not have to change the carpet.

Thumbs up I agree, this sounds promising....

if.... this is a true "Rat Pack" Show.

The name Rat Pack is copyrighted and licensed by the Sinatra family and is vigorously protected by Ms. Tina Sinatra.... this is much as Priscilla has so studiously protected her daughter's residuals while she was growing up.

There have only been two productions that have been officially licensed by Ms. Sinatra to carry the RAT PACK name. There have been many who have tried to use this name and they have been shut down or forced to change.

Ms. Sinatra is insisting on very high standards (and some upfront cash) if they are planning to try and horn-in on the reproductions of style and caricature that her father and the other Rat Pack members personified.

So if the show being proposed for Branson is a true, "Rat Pack production" then it has great potential. If it is the same talentless yahoos who rip off RiverDance with their shows, now trying to do the same with Mr. Sinatra, they will have nothing but trouble on their hands and who knows, maybe even they will "sleep with the fishes," if they aren't careful.

BTW, I saw one of the official Rat Pack Shows in Las Vegas at the Sahara Hotel and Bobby Caldwell was playing the part of Frank. It was fantastic! Hope Branson show is as good and then I will have high hopes for this.
