From the producers:"Come Fly Away" follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song and dance filled evening at a crowded nightclub. Blending the legendary vocals of Frank Sinatra with a live on stage 19-piece big band and 15 of the world’s finest dancers, "Come Fly Away" weaves an unparalleled hit parade of classics, including 'Fly Me To The Moon,' 'My Way' and 'That's Life' into a soaring musical fantasy of romance and seduction.
Ms. Tharp is a wild-card - the sublime "Movin' Out" was counter-balanced by the regrettable "The Times They Are A-Changin'." Fortunately, she's back in top form here, and the results are remarkable. The New York Times calls the show a "dazzling new dance musical," that features a "stage full of brilliant performers" and captures "the immortal appeal of Sinatra’s singing." The AP said with "a little help from the Chairman of the Board," Ms. Tharp and "the finest company of dancers on Broadway soar."
