CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE – New York's newest hotspot for intimate dining and extraordinary music – will present Klea Blackhurst in "Everything the Traffic Will Allow," her loving tribute to the songs made famous by the quintessential stage personality Ethel Merman, on Sunday, March 10 at 7:00 PM. Rather than a Merman imitation, Klea offers a paean to the great Broadway legend that serves as a potent reminder of Merman's sheer, undeniable importance to both the history of twentieth century entertainment and the iconic composers like Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, and Jerry Herman, who wrote songs just for her. The engagement is a rare chance to experience Blackhurst's crackling wit and powerful vocals as she performs her savvy valentine to one of American theater's greatest stars. The evening features arrangements by Michael Rice and music direction by Bruce Barnes. Tickets are $25-$45, in addition to a service charge and a two-item food and beverage minimum. A livestream option is available for $20. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street.
