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 is also enjoying its off-Broadway debut this fall. The production opened on October 5, 2018 for an open-ended run at St. Luke's Theatre (308 West 46th St.). For additional information on the New York run, visit www.bookofmermanmusical.com. THE BOOK OF MERMAN has also played in Portland, OR, Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN and Washington, D.C., and Birmingham, AL.

THE BOOK OF MERMAN debuted with Pride Films and Plays in January 2015. Following a successful run at Mary's Attic, the production transferred to Chicago's Apollo Theater for an additional three months.

The production team for THE BOOK OF MERMAN includes: Nicholas Schwartz (scenic design), Rachel Sypniewski (costume design), Levi Wilkins (lighting design), Jaysen Kralovetz (props design) and Jack Rhea (stage manager).
