Michael Fitzpatrick The Ethel Merman Theater... No brainer

Kevin Thomason The Ethel Merman Theatre, obviously.
Allan O'Grady Cuseo The Ethel Merman
Matt Bancroft The Merman
Phill Greenland The Merman is long overdue. Sixteen shows as a star in which she frequently carried most or all of the run, a legend, the original high belt/mixer, and a fifty-year career - seems like a no-brainer.
Ethel Merman made her Broadway debut in 1930 in Girl Crazy. She became one of the biggest Broadway stars of her era, a woman whose name became synonymous with the musical theatre. Her many other theatrical credits include George White's Scandals; Take a Chance; Anything Goes; Red, Hot and Blue; Stars in Your Eyes; DuBarry Was a Lady; Panama Hattie; Something for the Boys; Annie Get Your Gun; Call Me Madam; Happy Hunting; Gypsy and Hello, Dolly! Merman was nominated for Tony Awards for her performances in Gypsy and Happy Hunting and won the Tony for her work in Call Me Madam. She also received a Special Tony Award in 1972.

Tony Cassidy Bob Fosse Theater
Bob Fosse was a lean, blond dancer-actor in nightclubs, films and on Broadway before he blossomed as a visionary stage and film choreographer and director; he was Tony-nominated as Best Actor in a Musical in 1964 for playing Joey in Pal Joey, a role he understudied on Broadway in 1952. In one year, 1973, he won the Academy Award for his direction of the film "Cabaret," Tonys for Direction and Choreography of Pippin and Emmys for the Direction and Choreography of the TV special "Liza With a Z." He was later Oscar-nominated for direction of the biopic "Lenny" in 1975 and for the screenplay and direction of "All That Jazz" in 1980. He won his last Tony in 1986 for the choreography of Big Deal.
