Tickets to Come Fly Away, the new Twyla Tharp dance musical set to the songs and voice of Frank Sinatra, go on sale to the general public Jan. 18.

The production, which centers on four couples falling in and out of love over the course of one evening, will begin previews at the Marquis Theatre March 1 and officially open March 25.

Originally titled Come Fly With Me, the new dance musical played its world-premiere engagement at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta this past September.

Members of the original Alliance production will re-create their performances in the Broadway production, including Tony nominees Keith Roberts and John Selya. The principal cast also features Alexander Brady, Rika Okamoto, Karine Plantadit, Matthew Dibble, Holley Farmer, Laura Mead and Charlie Neshyba-Hodges. Much of the principal cast are veterans of Tharp's Tony-winning dance musical Movin' Out.

The Come Fly Away ensemble will feature Kristine Bendul, Colin Bradbury, Alexander Brady, Todd Burnsed, Jeremy Cox, Carolyn Doherty, Amanda Edge, Cody Green, Heather Hamilton, Laurie Kanyok, Meredith Miles, Marielys Molina, Eric Otto, Justin Peck, Joel Prouty, Ashley Tuttle and Ron Todorowski.

With the blessing of Frank Sinatra Enterprises and the Sinatra family, Come Fly Away features original masters of Sinatra's voice, which are backed by a live on-stage band. The show includes original arrangements by Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Quincy Jones, as well as newly created arrangements for the production. Come Fly Away, according to press notes, "follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song and dance filled evening at a crowded nightclub. Blending the legendary vocals of Frank Sinatra with a live on stage 19-piece big band and 15 of the world’s finest dancers, Come Fly Away weaves an unparalleled hit parade of classics, including 'Fly Me To The Moon,' 'My Way' and 'That's Life' into a soaring musical fantasy of romance and seduction."

The Broadway production will reunite Alliance design team members including set designer James Youmans, lighting designer Donald Holder, costume designer Katherine Roth, as well as music supervisor Patrick Vacciarello (assuming duties for the late Sam Lutfiyya), sound designer Peter McBoyle and orchestrators Dave Pierce and Don Sebesky.

Tickets are available by phoning (212) 307-4100, or by visiting Ticketmaster.

The Marquis Theatre is located at 1535 Broadway.
