THE BEAST OF BROADWAY starring David Garrison   (2009-2010 Season)

David Merrick was Broadway’s most famous and successful producer.  THE BEAST OF BROADWAY gives the audience a behind the scenes look as we explore the workings of the very intense and inventive mind of David Merrick.  The list of the shows he produced stands as the theater’s most spectacular resume: GYPSY; HELLO, DOLLY; TAKE ME ALONG; SUGAR; MACK & MABEL; FANNY; CARNIVAL; DO RE MI; OLIVER; 110 IN THE SHADE; I DO! I DO; STOP THE WORLD-I WANT TO GET OFF; PROMISES, PROMISES; and of course, 42ND STREET.  Unfortunately, he was also the most hated, reviled and feared man in show business.  He was capable of great achievement, often accompanied by staggering acts of cruelty.  Was he misunderstood? Was he the monster his enemies and those he hurt said he was, or is the truth somewhere in the middle?  Based in part on the best-selling book "The Abominable Showman" by Howard Kissell, writers Faye Greenberg (High School Musical) and Robert L. Freedman (TV's Cinderella) have been writing diligently to bring this fascinating story to the stage.   Audiences enjoyed this World Premiere event at TheatreZone before it embarks on a national tour headed for Broadway!
