In December, the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank presented a “Sinatra Meets The Sopranos” show in honor of the 103rd anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth. And on Feb. 9 at 8 p.m., the Event Center at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City will present a similar show in honor of the 20th anniversary of “The Sopranos,” which debuted on HBO in January 1999.
As at the Basie show, “Sopranos” actors Michael Imperioli (who played Christopher Moltisanti), Vincent Pastore (Sal “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero) and Steve Schirripa (Bobby “Bacala” Baccalieri) will make appearances, and Michael Martocci will sing Sinatra songs with a 20-piece orchestra.
Bill Spadea of WKXW (New Jersey 101.5 FM) and television’s “Chasing News” will host.
The Borgata’s web site describes the show as “a unique evening of stories and songs to celebrate two iconic entertainment entities; singing legend Frank Sinatra and the legendary HBO series The Sopranos. Get the real story behind the legendary show — the stories, the drama, the laughs — not to mention the countless theories about the show’s controversial finale.”
Tickets are $29 to $69, with $99 “VIP Meet and Greet Packages” also available. Visit theborgata.com/shows/events/all-events.
