Thanks for supporting Pride Films and Plays. I hope you will see Angry Fags at Steppenwolf Garage this spring.


The Book Of Merman
When two Mormons ring a doorbell marked E.M. in a small town, they have no idea that a certain Ethel will open the door. With some dazzling parody music and Schwartz's original songs, you will laugh throughout The Book of Merman and leave smiling, as it takes you to places you did not know you wanted to go.

Jeff Award-winner David Zak directs, with Jeff Award-winner Robert Ollis musical directing. PFP Artistic Ensemble Member Libby Lane stars as Ethel Merman.

The works of Jeff Award Winner Leo Schwartz (Under A Rainbow Flag  Best New Work, 2103; renamed HONOR!) have been performed Off-Broadway, in Chicago, and in Europe. His musical, NAUGHTY! was the Director's Choice of the New York Musical Theatre Festival. Me and Capone  Or How I Died in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre was featured at the SONY search for New Musicals in Cardiff, Wales. His film scores and films have won awards in numerous festivals. He is Composer-In-Residence for the Chicago Clarinet Ensemble. Leo receives frequent commissions and makes his residence in Chicago, Illinois.

Details: The Book of Merman by Leo Schwartz, directed by David Zak, musical direction by Robert Ollis, and featuring Libby Lane as Ethel Merman.
