"No one should take lightly standing onstage trying to BE Frank Sinatra, but Richard Shelton is quite simply phenomenal. He captures the essence of the man perfectly. His voice has exactly the right tone; he has that twinkle in his eye; he has the anger that sometimes flowed out of every Sinatra pore.”
“Masterful - A Must See."
Musical Theatre Review
“Richard Shelton in Sinatra:RAW conveys the spirit of the legend in a difficult stage in his life without ever lapsing into imitation or parody, it’s a memorable gritty portrayal that stays with you long after the music has stopped.”
Fresh from winning a prestigious Hollywood Fringe Award (Best of Broadwater 2023), actor and singer Richard Shelton returns with his critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning show, ‘Sinatra: RAW’.
‘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 2am Sinatra you dream of meeting – dangerous, unpredictable, brilliant!’
