About the show

The Rat Pack are back from the dead, literally crooning their hearts out, for this concert event. Listen as Frank, Dean, and Sammy add a spookish spin to their hits, changing up their lyrics to honor their deadly lifestyles. More…

More comical than creepy, more entertaining than eerie, you'll hear all of your favorite Rat Pack tunes with an "undead" twist, including "Come Die With Me," "Monsters in the Night", "What Kind of Ghoul Am I?" and many more.

Hard to hear some lines, Cliched, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you are a fan of Senatra, Davis, or Martin and enjoy intimate supper club show setting, don’t mind lame parody/cover of Rat Pack standards

Don't see it if you prefer fully costumed, staged, set, large cast theatre dramatic, comedic, or musical productions in traditional stadium theatre

Also Singing is excellent. Tony DiMeglio is especially talented and turns i... Read more Read less

Fluffy, Clever, Silly, Great singing

See it if you want to see three talented young men who can really sing. I was dubious at first, but I ended up having a decent time. They are good!

Don't see it if you expect a serious Rat Pack tribute. In this one, they are zombies & the words to the songs have been changed, not all effectively.

Insipid, Overrated, Excruciating, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if Very bad attempt with humor to bring back from the dead the glorious music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr..Some good singing

Don't see it if It was a dreadful show. Don't waste your time. Actually, run away now.

Great singing, Funny, Clever

See it if you want a fun experience where each of the singers has a great voice. There is a clever use of the songs rewritten to feature the Halloween

Don't see it if You do not like to be in a cabaret setting where others & you can eat even though the food is fantastic!

Don't see it if if you don't care for songs by the Rat Pack with a "scary-come-back-from-the-dead" twist.

Disappointing, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if you want to recall the days of yore. The setting is perfect. The food is OK The staff is pleasant.

Don't see it if Some attempt to recreate the old days but "kinda feeble".Lighting designers need help. Singers are handicapped by the choice of dialogue.

Delightful, Fluffy, Quirky, Entertaining, Cabaret style

See it if You enjoy parody. You're familiar w/American standards songs. You want a star turn from Erick Carter(Sammy). You like a cabaret setting.

Don't see it if You have no familiarity w/the American Standards or the Rat Pack. You dislike parody and/or Halloween themes. You want cabaret w/live music.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Great writing

See it if you would enjoy well-known songs of the trio with new words that sometimes are hilarious and always reflect a Halloween/fright theme.

Don't see it if you want good impersonation, both looks & voice and you know the music and the pack. Lighting could be better and "dead" make-up is basic.

Entertaining, Quirky, Great singing, Banal

See it if It quirky, with ghoulish lyrics in the very nice cabaret setting. Want to see what Frank (Blue Eyes), Dean, Sammy may look like in as zombie

Don't see it if You want to hear someone who sounds like them. Short show.

Also The Green Room is in a nice looking hotel. Had no cover change. You ca... Read more Read less

Quirky, Insipid, Fluffy, Banal, Seasonal show

See it if Time warp. Cabaret accessed through a mod '70s-airport-themed lobby w/ hanging beads to a seasonal '60s zombie Rat Pack hey-day parody.

Don't see it if It's a fright. And probably not in the way intended. Just as the pages of a joke-a-day calendar fall, so, too, will this Hallowe'en show.

Also No drink minimum in a shiny, new venue.

Clever, Banal, Funny

See it if you enjoy a witty remake of the Rat Pack's song's lyrics meant for Halloween. A little silly. Singers ok not great. Dean Martin done best.

Don't see it if you are a purist about the Rat Pack. I have seen much better imitations of Frank and Sammy.

Also Venue set up as café. Can order drinks and food.

Clever, Entertaining, Great singing, Hilarious, Great writing

See it if you enjoy fun parody type shows. The cast was fun and engaging and it was to great spend an evening with the Rat Pack from grave to stage

Don't see it if If you like full musicals with a full plot and story. This is not that kind of show. Also if you don’t like songs from yesterday.

Banal, Great singing, Quirky

See it if You see the title and think "this sounds like something I'd love." It's exactly what it sounds like, and on top of that, there's no minimum.

Don't see it if If it sounds dumb, it is. Prepare for lots of "SDJ is a Jew" jokes and some very cheesy alt lyrics.

Clever, Disappointing, Funny, Quirky

See it if you'll enjoy hearing famous oldies sung with "Monster Mash-ish" lyrics, e.g., "What Kind of Ghoul am I?" by undead Sinatra, Martin, & Davis

Don't see it if you suspect the joke will wear thin quickly. Hey, for half an hour or so, it was fun, but after that, IMO, it grew tedious.

Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want a Halloween themed show. Some of the singers are great. It's very Las vegas/cruise ship kind of entertainment

Don't see it if You expect a story. You want consistent vocals. Some songs/perfomers better than others. The show is too short! 55 min?? Wtf

See it if you have time to spare and like parodies of old songs. And don't mind a room that gets lights in your eyes.

Don't see it if you don't want to see old classics mangled.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if you enjoy the music of the Rat Pack trio (Sinatra, Martin & Davis Jr.) with words to the songs altered to represent the living dead.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy legendary songs rearranged with ghoulish lyrics. Also, the play is very short, approximately one hour.

Banal, Disappointing, Quirky, Slow

See it if You like ok singing in a night club atmosphere. This didn’t do it for me. I found the lyrics annoying rather than funny after the 1st song

Don't see it if You liked the original rat pack. These singers are not the same and the show was a bit boring to me.

Sweet and funny. entertaining

See it if You like the Rat Pack and their music in a totally strange premise. Frank Sinatra-guy was great.

Don't see it if If you hate that kind of music or were expecting the show to be scary

Also I would have like more gore,but that's me. SDJ needed to keep up with ... Read more Read less
