Mystique and myth

Simply Sinatra

That was the scene at the cocktail party that was held prior to the premiere of My Way, written and performed by Kaye Riley and Sabreen Baker. My Way is a musical tribute to Frank Sinatra and stays far away from the persona of Frank Sinatra and it looks more towards his love-life.The goal of My Way was to construct a musical revue that recalls the essence of the man through the various women in his life and also the glorious music he sang.

The musical started with ‘I’ve got the world on a string’ and it came to an end with My Way. Fourteen of Frank Sinatra’s greatest hits were sung by Kaye Riley, some of which were I’ve got you under my skin there, Once in my life, I have someone who needs me, I’m singing in the rain and many more. Kaye involved the audience actively in the musical revue by calling some ladies on to the stage to dance with him as he sang.

Woven with unambiguous fluidity, My Way brings to life the protagonist, Frank and his growth as a human being as he encounters the many women in his life. My Way has been written keeping Sinatra’s life in mind but follows the escapades of Frank in New York in 2006 and the women who come into and leave his life based on Sinatra’s relationships with Ava Gardner, Sofia Loren, Lana Turner, Lauren Bacall, Barbara Marx, and Mia Farrow. The focus of the script was on how Frank grows through the demise of each of his relationships. The audience got an opportunity to celebrate Sinatra’s mystique and his myth through the music and women he loved best. The musical revue came in two acts.
