London, Thursday 25 June 2015: Karl Sydow, award-winning producer of productions ranging from Our Country’s Good to Dirty Dancing and Backbeat, has today announced the team behind what is set to be the most visually stunning stage production of 2015. The best creative talents in theatre will create a multimedia spectacular in honour of the centenary of icon Frank Sinatra. Sinatra The Man & His Music at the London Palladium is the official celebration of Frank Sinatra’s centenary year and opens on 10 July, marking 65 years to the day since Sinatra’s first ever performance in the UK at the Palladium back in 1950.
Sydow has handpicked his team from the best in theatre, music, technology, dance and design in order to create an unforgettable West End show. The creative team includes multi award winner David Gilmore as Director whose past accolades include Daisy Pulls It Off, The Hired Man and Grease. The stage set has been designed by Ray Winkler of Stufish Entertainment Architects. Stufish has designed impressive sets for the BRITs, NFL Super Bowl, tours for U2, The Rolling Stones, Jean-Michel Jarre and Robbie Williams. Leo Warner from world leading video and projection design company 59 Productions, was a winner at the 2015 Tony Awards for his work on American In Paris, and will be integral in bringing Sinatra to life on stage using the state of the art technology with never-before seen footage from the Sinatra Estate. Lighting virtuoso Patrick Woodroffe who has worked with The Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, AC/DC, The Three Tenors, and on the Opening and Closing ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games is on board to ignite the stage with his world-class expertise. Choreographers Glenn Wilkinson and Jacquie Biggs will create the routines for the company of 20 dancers that will accompany Sinatra on stage. Between them Wilkinson and Biggs have an unrivalled amount of experience performing in the West End, and most recently restaging Dirty Dancing across the world. Rounding off the creative team is the West End’s finest Musical Supervisor, Gareth Valentine.
