Due to the effects of the coronavirus, Out Front Theatre Company has postponed its season until later this summer – but will present select plays digitally following a pay-what-you-can principle.
As a result of having to cancel and postpone performances to combat the spread of the COVID-19, Out Front has quickly switched its strategy to include virtual viewing parties of past plays. First up is the digital video recording of the hilarious Christmas extravaganza, The Ethel Merman Disco Christmas Spectacular! The show imagines what Ethel Merman’s unaired 1979 Christmas television special would be like. Taking place on stage at the iconic Studio 54, the same year that the Queen of Broadway released her now-famous disco record, the show is filled with classic Christmas song set to a dance floor beat and punctuated by such stars as Andy Warhol, Donna Summer, Truman Capote, and more.
