      Call Me Miss Birds Eye

      Written by Jack Tinker and starring Denise Wharmby as Ethel Merman, Call Me Miss Birds Eye chronicles and celebrates the life of one of Broadway’s most legendary performers who came to be known as the First Lady of Musical Theater. The revue includes more than 30 songs from Merman’s extensive song catalogue and follows her journey from a day job as a stenographer to when she became the star in her first musical Girl Crazy, and how she balanced her family life, handled rejection and stood her ground against the opinions of musical theater’s most famous composers. The story of Merman’s life on and off the stage, is punctuated by the songs that defined her career, including “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Everything’s Coming up Roses,” “I Get A Kick Out of You” and “Anything You Can Do.” Highlighting the work of the songwriters who were inspired by her, including George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, Call Me Miss Birds Eye is performed Bel Canto, the traditional Italian vocal technique that Merman perfected and which engulfed audiences with the richness and nuances of the voice in a pure, acoustic form.
