Theatre Talk: Friday, August 8, 2008

Ethel Merman

(? Culver Pictures, 1934)
Ethel Merman

By Jim Santella and Anthony Chase, WBFO


Buffalo, NY – Jim and Tony remember Ethel Merman, one hundred years after her birth, and they speculate on the future of the Studio Arena theater. Beauty and the Beast will be directed by Randy Kramer at Artpark, and we hear a music sample and preview. Shakespeare is on two local stages, as The Merry Wives of Windsor continues for another week at Delaware Park, and A Midsummer Night's Dream plays at the Chautauqua Institution.
