Sinatra, Jr., Nelson Riddle
and Rupert Holmes!

Sinatra, Jr. says: "Rupert Holmes is the Frank Loesser of his generation." On his latest CD (That Face) Frank, Jr. includes Rupert Holmes' much-admired cabaret standard "The People That You Never Get to Love" (a song Sinatra, Sr. had someday intended to record himself). The sensitive arrangement of this recording is by the incomparable Nelson Riddle in a chart written shortly before the master orchestrator's death.

Knocks 'Em Dead!

The New York Times: "A deliciously wicked cocktail offered by the droll Mr. Holmes! A slick and witty spoof full of pretzel turns, stops and starts, and slam-on-the-brakes denouements in a maniacally seamless plot!"

Peter Filichia, Newark Star Ledger: "Holmes turns out to be just as smart as his namesake Sherlock. He is, however, a good deal funnier. As many chills and spills as there are in Accomplice, there are even more hearty belly laughs!

In June and July, the Two River Theatre Company, at their handsome new home in Redbank, New Jersey, presented Daniel Gerroll’s (Chariots of Fire, Seinfeld)’s latest rendition of ACCOMPLICE, again with Mr. Gerroll in the lead and actors Kate Hodge, Phoebe Jonas and Ted Deasy. The production was hailed with across the board raves.
