BPAC presents the New York hit featuring the songs and sass of Ethel Merman!

Klea Blackhurst’s award-winning and critically acclaimed tribute to Ethel Merman took New York by storm and has continued to wow audiences and critics alike nationwide ever since.

Klea brings bright new interpretations of Merman’s signature songs such as “I Got Rhythm,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” as well as rarely performed obscurities. Join us to experience Klea’s crackling wit and powerful vocals as she performs her brilliant, savvy valentine to one of American theater’s greatest stars.

"Klea Blackhurst is engaged, trained and talented enough to give us wonderful intimations of Merman the performer without being crushed by her.  And she is smart enough and a good enough writer to turn the story of Merman’s star power into a folk tale.  We were watching a real talent, a performer we knew could delight us without ever singing a note that had once been commandeered by Ethel Merman.  We were not in thrall to the past:  we were watching an interpretation of it that turned into something new.”

When the police sergeant arrives, worried that the murderer may be among the guests of the Manor, he initiates an investigation into the lives and histories of everyone there. One of them is the killer, and another one of them may be next. Will the police be able to solve the case before another “mouse” falls?

The world’s longest continuously running play, celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year, The Mousetrap continues to delight and intrigue mystery lovers of all ages.
