(Anthony Stonier)

Frank Sinatra – a legend whose unique voice soared through almost a century of music - making him one of the most influential popular artists of the 20th century. He was a prolific artist, recording over 1800 songs at least once in his long, illustrious career.

A true icon, who continues to have an immeasurable influence on popular culture, be it music, film, art, theatre or fashion.

Sinatra’s breath-taking musical legacy is celebrated in Sinatra ... Quite Frankly!, an intimate musical revue starring Anthony Stonier, coming to Rhumbelow Theatre, Durban, from January 25 to 27, 2019

Stonier has been a recognisable presence on the South African stage for the past 30 years. He has been involved in numerous productions over the years in varied capacities ranging from actor to singer, from pianist to composer. He has been nominated for various awards over the years, in all of the above categories. He has won several awards including a Best Supporting Actor VITA award in 1989 for Frank’n’Stein and two Durban Theatre Awards for Best Male Vocalist - in 2003 and 2007.

Stonier’s inherent musicality imbues this intimate reflection on Sinatra with sincerity, warmth and charm.
