Lots of places nearby Segerstrom Center to eat, from pricey to moderate. We ate at Thasos, a moderately priced Greek restaurant, in the Bed, Bath and Beyond shopping center diagonal to Segerstrom Center. Pretty good food, and can leave your car there to save $10 parking fee. Also Japanese, Indian, Cuban or specialty Hamburger restaurants in the same center.

The show was fabulous!!!! I loved every minute of it and was very
disappointed when it ended! The dancing was incredible and Sinatra's

over and over again!!!

The music was fantastic. Frank Sinatra's voice in sync with a live band was awesome. The dancers were very talented but at times there was so much going on at the same time that it was difficult to figure out which dancers to focus on. There were...continued

Description

Come Fly Away, which premiered at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta in 2009 and opened on Broadway the following year, is the next and most elaborate chapter in one of the most fruitful collaborations in contemporary dance. Tharp’s creative relationship with the music of Sinatra began in 1976 with the premiere of Once More Frank, a duet created for the American Ballet Theatre, and performed by Tharp and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The collaboration continued with Nine Sinatra Songs, Tharp’s acclaimed piece for 14 dancers, which had its world premiere with Twyla Tharp Dance in 1982, and was followed by Sinatra Suite, a duet featuring Baryshnikov and Elaine Kudo, which had its world premiere in 1984 with American Ballet Theatre at the Kennedy Center. Sinatra requested that Sinatra Suite be performed when he received his Kennedy Center Honors Award, citing it as one of the purest expressions of his body of work.
