This Tribute to a Broadway Queen Will Infuse Your Holiday with Upbeat Disco Hits

Out Front Theatre Company is ringing in the season with its first-ever holiday production, the world premiere of The Ethel Merman Disco Spectacular! Decking the halls with holiday tunes from December 6th to 22nd, the production imagines what the legendary Ethel Merman's 1979 disco Christmas television special might have been like.

The year is 1979 and the undisputed "Biggest Voice on Broadway" has released her now infamous disco album. A cavalcade of celebrities who make Studio 54 their second home have been recruited to help bring a disco beat to the holiday season, and leading the charge is none other than Ethel Merman herself!

Things avalanche into chaos, but "The Merm" can't be deterred in her quest to hustle around the Christmas tree and into every living room in America! Combine a harried stage manager gripping onto his first big assignment, a love affair that would melt Jack Frost's heart and a miserly producer who doesn't seem pleased with anything that is unfolding, and the outcome is a night of entertainment that is exactly what everyone has on their wish list.

Featuring a dozen blood-pumping disco Christmas songs, arranged by Out Front's Resident Musical Director Nick Silvestri, the show takes place at the legendary Studio 54. Written and directed by Out Front Theatre's Founder and Producing Artistic Director Paul Conroy, the holiday special is the perfect change of pace that will have audiences dancing in the aisles, laughing in their seats and feeling the holiday spirit well into the New Year.
