Queen of Broadway – The Ethel Merman Story
June 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - June 25, 2017 @ 8:00 pm UTC+10
There’s No Business Like Show Business as Jon Jackson, acclaimed Australian operatic counter-tenor recreates the life and times of Ethel Merman in QUEEN OF BROADWAY – The Ethel Merman Story.
In this must see performance, revisit the era and amazing songs of Cole Porter, the Gershwins, Irving Berlin and even Amy Winehouse as Miss Merman comes back to earth for one last show. However, first she has to find a body to inhabit. She sends out her wish list and ends up with Mr. Jon Jackson. He’s got the presence and the voice, so his gender is something she’s prepared to overlook.
