Ethel Merman’s Broadway starring Rita McKenzie
Saturday, Nov. 22
Dorothy Menker Theater

Ethel Merman was the best of the Broadway belters. She was the Queen of Broadway during its Golden Age, singing – as no one else could – unforgettable showstoppers in the great musicals, including Annie Get Your Gun, Gypsyand Hello, Dolly.

For 40 years you could always rely on “The Merm” to deliver the goods. When she retired from Broadway in 1970, she left people wondering if they would ever hear that sound again. Fast forward to 2014. You can hear it again. In this engaging tribute, the bold and brassy singer/actress Rita McKenzie brings Merman to life. With hilarious charm, colorful tales, eye-popping costumes, and a gigantic voice, McKenzie’s depiction defies belief.

Moraine Valley Community College invites you to our Fine and Performing Arts Center for our 21st season filled with music, dance, theater, and art for all ages. We’re pleased to bring you another outstanding lineup of concerts and special events in our 600-seat Dorothy Menker Theater, our intimate John and Angeline Oremus Theater, and our Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery. Join us!
