The suave and seductive crooners that led the Rat Pack may all be long gone, but their signature tunes will ring out when they’re transported from the nightclubs of Las Vegas to the stage at Signature Theatre. Three familiar studs of the Signature stage will be cracking wise at this limited engagement cabaret performance in the arts complex’s Shen space. Indoor smoking may be banned nationwide but libations will flow freely, just like Dean and Frank would have demanded. Slick back your hair with pomade, shine those wingtips, and tell your dame to put on her best red lipstick as you get transported back to the ’60s to the sound of “That’s Amore,” “King of the Road,” and “I’ve Gotta Be Me.” Read more >>> The production runs April 19 to 23 at Signature Theatre, 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington. $35.
