What Is the Story of My Sinatra?
My Sinatra is a one-man musical that follows performer Cary Hoffman’s life-long obsession with Frank Sinatra. When his father passed away during Hoffman’s childhood, he and his mother went to live with his three uncles, who served as studio musicians during Sinatra’s recording sessions. Hoffman began to idolize Sinatra and view him as a stand-in father figure. The performer spent his teen years trying to capture the magic of Sinatra’s voice and soon began a crooning career of his own.
