Join us at the Skokie Theatre for “The Book of Merman”, where Broadway’s biggest star collides with one of Broadway’s biggest hits in this hilarious new musical comedy filled with original songs. After a frustrating day of canvassing the neighborhood for prospective converts, two Mormon missionaries knock on the door of legendary belter Ethel Merman. Mistaking the two young men for door-to-door salesmen, Ethel welcomes them in, resulting in a clever and witty journey about being true to oneself and embracing who you really are.

Starring Julie Peterson, Danny Ferenczi, and Alex Iacobucci.

Directed by Ty Perry. Musical Direction by Jeremy Ramey.

Music and lyrics by Leo Schwartz. Book by Leo Schwartz and DC Cathro.
