Following a sell-out three-month run at Chicago’s Apollo Theater in 2015, Flying Elephant Productions has announced the return of the musical comedy THE BOOK OF MERMAN, featuring a book by Leo Schwartz and DC Cathro, and music and lyrics by Schwartz.
Directed by Cathro, the production will feature Nicole Frydman, Michael Idalski and Sam Massey.
The production team includes music direction by Tyler Miles, choreography by Jenna Schoppe and scenic design by Nicholas Schwartz.
Two Mormon missionaries ring Ethel Merman’s doorbell and hilarity ensues. It’s a diva-driven journey of self-discovery with an original score of comedy songs, power ballads, and mash-up standards.
THE BOOK OF MERMAN will play November 24, 2018 – January 6, 2019 at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. For more information visit flyingelephantproductions.com.
