Earning numerous standing O's from packed audiences throughout the first part of its hugely successful national Broadway theatre tour, "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show” continues into 2012 with an exclusive partnership with Off Broadway Booking (OBB NYC) in New York City.
Direct from Las Vegas at the legendary Las Vegas Hotel (formerly Las Vegas Hilton), the critically-acclaimed production brings its stellar performances to Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, Arkansas, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Minnesota and California with dates continually being added. A complete show schedule can be found online at www.sandysratpackontour.com.
The hit show is produced by Sandy Hackett, a powerhouse veteran writer/producer/actor and son of legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, along with his wife, producer/singer/songwriter Lisa Dawn Miller, daughter of the late legendary Motown songwriter Ron Miller.
As they continue on the Rat Pack tour, Sandy Hackett and Lisa Dawn Miller recently launched "My Buddy,” a new show paying homage to Sandy's father, legendary actor and comedian Buddy Hackett. The multi-faceted one man show is currently booking dates for the 2012-2013 Broadway season. It's a story that has never been told until now: the life and times, the joy and pain of one of Hollywood and Las Vegas' greatest comic geniuses of all time.
The multi-talented Lisa Dawn Miller, co-producer of the show with Hackett and one of its featured performers, is gearing up to release her new album, Wasn't I A Good Time due out this spring. The release features many of her father's songs discovered after his death in 2007, which have never been heard before, until now. The production of her new music video has also been announced. A remake of her father's song, "Used To Be,” originally released by Stevie Wonder, is slated for release this spring and makes a strong anti-bullying statement, an epidemic Miller cares passionately about.
"Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show” will continue to perform at its permanent home at the Las Vegas Hotel while on its national theatre tour throughout the rest of the season. A tour website has been launched with up-to-the-minute information about the tour: www.sandysratpackontour.com.
