„That’s Life – The Sinatra-Musical“ is about Sinatra’s incomparable career. In impressive tableaus, it shows his rise to fame, but also addresses the dark side of his glamorous life. Culminating in Las Vegas-style show tableaus, the musical presents “Frankie Boy’s” greatest hits and takes viewers back to the legendary time of swing and big bands. „That’s Life“ celebrated its world premiere at the theater on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on the occasion of Frank Sinatra’s 105th birthday and has since been on a major tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The major challenge in the artistic creation of this show was to rethink Frank’s life and performance aesthetics in the terms of modern-day show production and viewing habits while at the same time retaining musical theatre aesthetics.
With a specific focus on the production of the costume and the shows setup on stage (cueing, leading rehearsals, managing backstage processes during the show), we were able to give ‘theatrical’ flesh to the ‘musical’ bones of this tremendous legacy.
