In 1960, an unlikely group of entertainers took to Las Vegas to film a movie and perform two shows per evening together. No one would have ever guessed that their partnership would turn into one of the greatest (and most well-known) acts that the entertainment industry would have ever known, as well as some of the original partiers among the Las Vegas Strip! The Rat Pack, as they were coined, was the group that truly molded Las Vegas into “the” entertainment capital of the world.
Comprised of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, and Dean Martin, The Rat Pack was more than an entertainment act. They were a representation of multiethnic American democracy, where class was replaced by “class.” The Rat Pack redefined the “American cool.” They were a melting pot of different backgrounds, races, religions, and more…showing that true talent has no boundaries.
Today, you can relive this amazing and historic foursome in the Las Vegas show “The Rat Pack is Back!” Hailed as being the next best thing to seeing the original Rat Pack, themselves, “The Rat Pack is Back” is a perfect impersonation of the personalities, talents, and camaraderie that these four men shared.
