"Merman" is a musical play about Ethel Merman. It begins in 1963 and travels back in time to 1930 and Merman's Opening Night in "Girl Crazy." It showcases all the famous people who crossed paths with Merman, ie: Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, George Abbott, Dorothy Fields, and Dorothy Kilgallen among many others. It is a tribute to the Golden Age of Musical Theatre.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
