Book of Merman in Chicago

I love the fact that Chicago is like a mini New York. So many choices for dining, shopping and entertainment.  There must be close to 100  theatre choices, on any given week.

NEW THIS WEEK, Pride Films and Plays launches The Book of Merman, a new musical comedy by Jeff Award-winning playwright Leo Schwartz. The show opens on January 17, 2015  (17th is SOLD OUT) at Mary’s Attic, 5400 North Clark Street.

 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, laughter ensues throughout The Book of Merman catapulting you to places you didn’t know you wanted to go.

Starring : Sam Button-Harrison, Dan Gold and  Libby Lane.

Jeff Award-winner David Zak* directs, with Jeff Award-winner Robert Ollis* music directing. Costumes are by Raquel Adorno*. Understudies are Parker Guidry and Edward Fraim*.
