Fifteen of the world’s best dancers tell the story of four couples falling in and out of love at a swinging nightclub on a sultry summer night, set to a score of beloved Sinatra classics including “The Summer Wind,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “One for My Baby,” “My Way,” “Theme from New York, New York,” and “I’ve Got the World on a String.”

    Charles Isherwood

    Michael Kuchwara

    March 26, 2010: The super-cool song stylings of Frank Sinatra have been given an additional layer of sexiness in “Come Fly Away,” Twyla Tharp’s libido-charged love letter to romance, not to mention the man and his music.

    Dancers Spin a Frank Story

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    March 26, 2010: If nothing else, "Come Fly Away" confirms that Twyla Tharp has created a Broadway category of her own: the jukebox dancical.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Come Fly Away

    March 25, 2010: The unceasingly creative force of nature called Twyla Tharp returns to town importuning audiences to "Come Fly Away," but her third Broadway dance revue only intermittently gets off the ground. This despite an impressive dance corps, a handsome production, a fine swing band and Ol' Blue Eyes croonin' away from limboland. Sinatra's seductive voice and Tharp's sexy moves are well matched, building to some impressively climactic peaks. General audiences, though, might well run out of stamina before the dancers do.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Come Fly Away

    March 25, 2010: Bottom Line: Terrific dancing and classic vocals by the Chairman of the Board are entertainingly if too abstractly combined in Twyla Tharp's new show.

  • WALL STREET JOURNAL REVIEW OF Come Fly Away

    March 25, 2010: Twyla Tharp racked up a major disaster three seasons ago with "The Times They Are A-Changin'," one of the lamest jukebox musicals ever to stagger onto Broadway. Not surprisingly, she's playing it very, very safe this time around: "Come Fly Away" is a love-in-a-nightclub fantasy set to the ever-popular music of Frank Sinatra, whose recordings have previously accompanied three of Ms. Tharp's ballets. The songs are familiar, the dancers are pretty, the set is fancy and the band is hot. All that's missing from this recipe for success are a star and a few memorable onstage events.

    Come Fly Away

    Matthew Murray

    March 25, 2010: Though it’s been nearly 12 years since his death, Frank Sinatra still excites. His piercing baritone remains one of the most defining American musical instruments of the last 100 years, his recordings must-listens for their lyrical interpretation as much as their technical proficiency. Ol’ Blue Eyes may not have been much of a Broadway baby (save a 1975 concert with Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie), but his style and material were such that the Great White Way was in his blood, and one imagines he would have been welcomed at any time.
