Subject:        Shakespeare and Sinatra

SHAKSPERians:

I hope you'll indulge me in a frivolous request for a good cause. A
colleague of mine hosts a weekly Frank Sinatra program on our campus
radio station, and once a month he invites a guest to participate in a
"Sinatra and..." format, with what follows the "and" being an aspect of
campus life to which he hopes to introduce his audience (previous topics
have included journalism, science, and even planning and construction).
Next month's topic is to be Shakespeare, and, despite knowing little
more of Sinatra than "My Way," I'm the guest. The host has assured me
that he'll cover the Sinatra and all I need do is talk about
Shakespeare, but I'd like to have some connections between the two to
contribute. Can anyone suggest songs, movies, or anything else by or
involving Sinatra or his associates that have a Shakespeare reference or
other connection?

Many thanks,
Steve Cohen
