Shell Point Retirement Community closes out its show-stopping 2017-2018 Performing Arts Concert Series program with “My Sinatra,” starring Cary Hoffman. Curtains open at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17 at the Village Church at Shell Point, 15100 Shell Point Blvd. in Fort Myers. The event is open to the public, with tickets available for $35 online at www.shellpoint.org/concerts or by phone at 239-454-2067.
Hoffman translates his celebrated PBS special into a hilarious biographical one-man musical play. Hoffman’s poignant and high-energy performance centers on the love and admiration he holds for his hero, Frank Sinatra, and explores the perils of wanting to become somebody else.
Hoffman will captivate audiences with his personal account of growing up fatherless with three musician uncles, who played on some of Sinatra’s greatest recordings, turning Sinatra into a fantasy father. Throughout the performance, Hoffman weaves in more than 20 classic Sinatra songs, creating a musical score about his lifelong obsession. This final 2017-2018 Performing Arts Series concert is not one to miss.
