“Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show" recreates what it would have been like to see legendary icons, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop live onstage together. The Telegram & Gazette writes, "There are several shows out there but if you're looking for authenticity instead of imitation, 'Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show” is the one to see!”
Currently in its fifth touring season for the 2013-2014 U.S. Broadway Season Theatre Tour, the hit musical is produced by Hackett Miller, the jointly led production company of producers Lisa Dawn Miller and her husband, Sandy Hackett. Miller is the daughter of the late legendary songwriter, Ron Miller and also stars in the show as "Frank's One Love,” a character based on Sinatra's great love, Ava Gardner. Hackett is the son of legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, who portrays "God” in the show via tracks he recorded prior to his death in 2003, Theater League said.
Hackett Miller recently premiered its new production, "My Buddy” at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, Florida. The show is directed by Miller and stars the younger Hackett, who shares stories and personal anecdotes about his father. Additional info can be found at www.mybuddyhackett.com.
Miller is also producing and directing a new documentary about her father entitled, "For Once In My Life – The Great American Ron Miller Songbook.” The film focuses on Miller's significant contribution to American pop culture as one of the world's most prolific songwriters, while it explores the personal side of Miller's complex and colorful life. Hackett Miller is set to follow-up the film with a live theatrical musical production of the same name in 2016, a press release stated.
Hackett Miller also recently released a new music video, "Count On Me,” by 13-year-old prodigy, Oliver Richman, a touching ballad rendition of the Bruno Mars hit.
