Frank, Dean, Sammy, and Joey. The undisputed “Kings Of Cool” come alive again this week when “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” begins a five day run at Yakima’s 4th Street Theatre.
This production aims to re-capture the look, sounds and comedy of the legendary “Rat Pack” shows that took the stage in Las Vegas in the 1960s. Featuring legendary entertainers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Joey Bishop, the productions drew standing room only crowds and rave reviews.
Sandy Hackett is the son of the late comedian Buddy Hackett, who was an intimate of the “Rat Pack”, Sandy grew up around these show business icons, and portrays Bishop in this production. Sandy and his wife Lisa, who is also in the show, were guests on Tuesday’s KIT Morning News. They talked about the production and what it was like growing up around the “Rat Pack.”
