Nov 22, 2014-Nov 22, 2014 - ETHEL MERMAN'S BROADWAY
Moraine Valley Community College Fine & Performing Arts Center
Dorothy Menker Theater, 9000 West College Parkway, Palos Hills, IL
708-974-5500
Ethel Merman was the best of the Broadway belters. She was the Queen of Broadway during its Golden Age, singing – as no one else could – unforgettable showstoppers in the great musicals, including Annie Get Your Gun, Gypsy and Hello, Dolly. For 40 years you could always rely on “The Merm” to deliver the goods. When she retired from Broadway in 1970, she left people wondering if they would ever hear that sound again. Fast forward to 2014. You can hear it again. In this engaging tribute, the bold and brassy singer/actress Rita McKenzie brings Merman to life. With hilarious charm, colorful tales, eye-popping costumes, and a gigantic voice, McKenzie’s depiction defies belief.
