Described as the "biggest little musical in the world", Ethel Merman's Broadway is a powerhouse tribute to a powerhouse performer. Theater, film and television actress Rita McKenzie stars in this acclaimed one-woman show, packed with sequined costumes and equally dazzling tunes from composers like Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim. With stunning authority, McKenzie conjures the verve and voice of "La Merm" in her interpretations of "Gee It's Good To Be Here," "You're the Top," "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "There's No Business Like Show Business" and many more. Experience the undisputed "Queen of the Musicals" take over the Stoneham Theatre to reminisce about her four husbands, her favorite shows and her feelings about Hollywood. Learn More
