Today marks the 27th anniversary of the passing of Ethel Merman, the Queen of Broadway.
In tribute to the fabulous “Merm”, I thought I’d share a montage from the fantastic show “Ethel Merman’s Broadway” which celebrates this one of a kind, amazing talent.
Rita McKenzie & Chris Powich wrote this show – which stars Ms. McKenzie in an amazing performance – and it’s played to rave reviews all over the country. This week it starts a two week run at the El Portal Theatre in Los Angeles’ North Hollywood area. I really recommend it. Rita really captures the essence of Merman, sings up a storm, and brings a nice sense of depth to Ethel as she tells stories from an incredible life.
Go see it if you’re in the area. Here’s a link to the theater.
