‘Book of Merman’

[MUSICAL THEATER] FRIDAY-SATURDAY, JUNE 7-8

Ethel Merman put an indelible stamp on American and Las Vegas stages with her over-the-top singing style and impeccable comedic timing. Truly a star of stage, screen, radio and television, the performer practically and proudly defined camp in the late 1970s, but never abandoned the instantly recognizable, brassy voice that was her signature. Also, she was married to Ernest Borgnine for 32 days. She is paid tribute during this song-and-story show. 8 p.m.; Onyx Theatre, 732-7225, $20
