The “devil-may-care,” style and incomparable charm of Frank Sinatra will surge through the microphone during the show, "My Sinatra" starring Cary Hoffman at the Newton Theatre on Saturday, May 10.

Hoffman is a Sinatra idolizer with an unparalleled ability to channel his voice. Hoffman captivates the audience with his intimate journey of what it was like growing up fatherless with three musician uncles, who played on some of Sinatra's greatest recordings, turning Sinatra into a fantasy father. Hoffman sings more than 20 classic Sinatra songs, creating a musical score about his lifelong obsession.

Hoffman is a playwright and actor, finally achieving his dream with his autobiographical one-man memoir musical, "My Sinatra." He turns his celebrated PBS Special into a biographical, often hilarious, and poignant one-man musical play about his love and idolization for his hero Frank Sinatra and the perils of wanting to become somebody else.

Hoffman has performed the music of Frank Sinatra for the past eight years around the world, including a performance for the President of Singapore. He is New York's premiere Sinatra interpreter. His compelling blend of vocal performance and stories led to a National PBS television special, produced by Albert Tapper, which has aired in more than 70 cities around the country and was viewed by more than 2 million people.

Before returning to the stage to sing the great songs of Sinatra, Hoffman was a very successful songwriter/producer, who co-wrote a hit Off-Broadway musical "What's A Nice Country Like You, Doing in a State Like This' co-wrote two top 20 country hits and some of the country's most well known jingles. As a personal manager, Hoffman discovered the RandB crooner Luther Vandross and the comedy actor Zach Galifianakis. He also manages A-list stand-up comedians such as Lynne Koplitz, co-star with Joan Rivers on WE's hit reality show "Joan and Melissa: Mother Knows Best," and TV Writers such as Tom Hertz, creator of CBS's "Rules of Engagement" and Mike Royce, creator and executive producer of TNT's "Men of a Certain Age." Hoffman, and his former wife Suzanne, opened Stand-UP NY Comedy Club – a landmark club on the Upper West Side – and ran it for the past 21 years.

Tickets for My Sinatra $47 for premium seating, $42 for orchestra and $37 for balcony. Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the box office at 973-383-3700.
