Merman’s Apprentice: Musical Theater’s Golden Age

“Merman’s Apprentice: Musical Theater’s Golden Age” with Hermitage Alumni Stephen Cole and David Evans, Friday, January 12, 5pm: It’s 1970 and the “Golden Age” of musical theater is drawing to an end … but 12-year-old Muriel Plakenstein doesn’t know that! So she runs away from home to become a theater star and meets the Queen of Broadway, Ethel Merman. What ensues is a musical fable created by Hermitage alumni Stephen Cole and David Evans that recreates that magic nostalgia of the brightest stages in the country. Join this collaborative team on the Hermitage beach to hear selections of this original work and to learn more about what inspired the musical’s journey. Presented in partnership with Venice Theatre.
