Since then, it has become one of the most popular musical revues in the United States, mounted by professional and amateur theatre groups alike. It features a vocal quartet -- two men, two women -- backed by an on-stage jazz trio. The focus is, of course, Sinatra -- his prolific life and career, most particularly the nearly 1,400 songs (57 of them in this production) that 'Ol Blue Eyes recorded.
