Meet Broadway's latest musical-theater duo: choreographer Twyla Tharp and Frank Sinatra.

"Come Fly Away" is a dance musical conceived, choreographed and directed by Tharp. Producer James L. Nederlander said Monday that it will open March 25 at the Marquis Theatre, with preview performances beginning March 1.

The show is about four couples who fall in and out of love. It features classic Sinatra vocals such as "Fly Me to the Moon," "My Way" and "That's Life." Casting has not been announced.

The musical was originally titled "Come Fly With Me" when it played a sold-out engagement last year at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta.
