WHAT TO EXPECT: “My Sinatra” is a one-man play created by and starring Cary Hoffman. The humorous, biographical show focuses on Hoffman’s affinity for Sinatra and what it was like growing up with relatives who actually performed with “Old Blue Eyes” on some of his classic hits. Hoffman describes to hilarious effect how his idolization for Sinatra got to the point where he actually wanted to be the man, and how the legend ended up being a sort of father to him in his imagination. In addition to the storytelling, Hoffman also performs more than 20 Sinatra classics throughout the course of the show. Anyone who enjoys the music of Frank Sinatra will want to check out “My Sinatra.”
