|Description:||"Johnny Mercer and Me!" is an original play based on the life of American songwriter and singer John Mercer. Having recently played to sold-out audiences in Savannah, the musical weaves a collection of memories together with some of the Oscar-winning songwriter’s greatest works. As seen through the eyes of Mercer’s longtime friend and confidant, Maxine, we learn about Johnny’s relationships, his private life, his love of Savannah, and his consuming alcoholism. Performances January 25-26 at 7:30 pm.|
