Cary Hoffman turns his celebrated PBS Special into a biographical, often hilarious, and poignant one-man musical play about his love and idolization for this hero Frank Sinatra and the perils of wanting to become somebody else.
Hoffman captivates the audience with his intimate journey of what it was like growing up fatherless with three musician uncles, who played on some of Sinatra’s greatest recordings, turning Sinatra into a fantasy father. Hoffman authentically sings Sinatra “Dead On!” (The New York Times), as he weaves in over 20 classic Sinatra songs, creating a musical score about his lifelong obsession.
"My Sinatra," about his Sinatra obsession, which ran Off- Broadway for two years! Hoffman has performed the music of Frank Sinatra for the past ten years in over 60 Performing Arts Centers around the World, including a performance for the President of Singapore and the President of Mexico. He is acknowledged as America's premier Sinatra interpreter ("Dead On..." -New York Times, "Mesmerizing!" -Los Angeles Times, "The Best Sinatra Singer ever!" -Jackie Mason). His compelling blend of vocal performance and stories, some poignant and some hilarious, led to a National PBS television special which has aired in over 80 cities around the country and was viewed by more than 2 million people (He is the only Sinatra television special starring somebody other than Frank Sinatra himself.)
