It’s Jim Brochu Turn As He Wins The Audience Over With Ethel Merman

Ethel Merman changed the course of Jim Brochu’s life when he was thirteen years old. A brief encounter, turned into a friendship with the Queen of Broadway, one that lasted until her death in 1984. Jim presented a warm and intimate show about his friendship with this  legendary performer. Between singing  some of her hit tunes and  showing video clips, Jim shared funny and sad stories of his encounter with Merman, as only he can. Jim is one of the best storyteller and devoted fans never miss an opportunity to hear some great backstage stories that he has collected over the years. This was a one night only performance and the Metropolitan Room was over sold.
