Palm Springs, 1971…
Frank Sinatra prepares for his last pre-retirement intimate show. But his blue eyes are red-rimmed with memories and regret. He drinks One For My Baby too many when things take an unexpected twist. This is the 2 am Sinatra you dream of meeting – dangerous, unpredictable, brilliant!
The critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning show Sinatra: RAW stars actor and singer Richard Shelton, accompanied on piano. Wolverhampton-born, and fondly remembered from TV’s Emmerdale, Shelton is internationally acclaimed as one of the world’s best interpreters of Frank Sinatra’s music. Cast as Sinatra in the hard-hitting drama, Rat Pack Confidential in the West End, his gritty portrayal won Richard a ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ nomination from the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards and international acclaim.
Sinatra: RAW brings to life the man who defined an era, and whose musical legacy will never die.

“His voice wraps you up. It helps that the Sinatra songbook contains pure gold. But, again, the veracity of Shelton’s flinty performance adds a fillip to his interpretations of the music.”
