The Book Of Merman - Raunchy Revelations
Julia's on Broadway proudly presents:     "The Book Of Merman - Raunchy Revelations"      April 12th @ 7:30pm.
If you're not familiar with Varla Jean Merman, nom du drag of the actor Jeffery Roberson, introductions are in order: The self-described love child of Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine, she's approximately 6 feet tall (depending which cunning heels and elaborate Ann-Margret-red hairpieces she's sporting at any given moment) and has an operatic voice ascending to a high F-sharp. (That's "Queen of the Night'' territory, and also a favored range for the occasional adorable hiccupy giggle.) She has the impeccable manners of a Southern debutante, combined with a taste for raunch that would leave the most jaded of libertines sputtering. If you like the kind of off-color comedy that makes you laugh till you choke, Varla Jean is your kind of girl.

Varla Jean Merman's alter ego Jeffery Roberson  shared the Outfest Film Festival "Best Actor" Award and the Aspen HBO Film Festival "Best Actress" Award with his costars Jack Plotnick and Clinton Leupp for his featured performance in Girls Will Be Girls (Sundance 2003) directed by Richard Day. He also played the role of Mary Sunshine in the revival of Chicago on Broadway.

Shows such as, The Book Of Merman, have filled concert halls and cabarets across the world including the Syndey Opera House, Carnegie Hall, the New York Public Theater, London's Soho Theatre, LA's Renberg Theatre, and San Francisco's Victoria Theatre.

He recently wrote and starred in the short Improve Your History with Varla Jean: Stonewall, for the launch of the MTV's new television network Logo. He was the opening act at Vienna's LifeBall, Europe's largest fundraiser for AIDS research, where he performed on the same bill with Sharon Stone, Catherine Deneuve and Naomi Campbell. He recently won rave reviews last May as both director and star of Shut Up Sweet Charlotte! at Le Petit Theatre in New Orleans. The production also won three Big Easy Awards including Best Comedy and Best Direction.

Note: Don't wait these tickets will sell fast! VIP tickets will get you early seating in our VIP section, and picture taking with Varla after the show! Dinner available before the show for reservations please call 206 334 0513
