'Come Fly Away' making L.A. premiere

HOLLYWOOD - The new Broadway musical, "Come Fly Away," featuring vocals by Frank Sinatra, will makes its Los Angeles premiere at the Pantages Theatre for a two-week engagement, Oct. 25 to Nov. 6.The score of "Come Fly Away" combines classic and newly-discovered vocal performances from the Sinatra archives along with signature arrangements by Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Quincy Jones. "Come Fly Away" follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song- and dance-filled evening at a crowded nightclub. Blending the legendary vocals of Sinatra with a live, on-stage big band and 15 dancers, the production weaves a hit parade of classics, including "Fly Me to the Moon," "My Way" and "That's Life," into a musical fantasy of romance and seduction.
