    Hartford, Connecticut
    TICKETS/INFO

    The Mark Twain House & Museum is pleased to announce the return of drag chanteuse Varla Jean Merman in a new show especially created for the Museum—A Louisiana Skankee in Connecticut Court.

    "Merman combines the physical presence of a buxom Russ Myer starlet with a hint of perky Doris Day and the brassiness of her spiritual mother, Ethel Merman." --Variety

    Varla appeared at The Museum several years ago in the hilarious sold-out show “The Lady Behind The Mustache.”  Now the love child of Ernest Borgnine and Ethel Merman returns with this new show to delight and tickle of the fancies of (mature) audiences.
