Why See Jerry's Girls?
An all-ladies celebration of the Broadway master composer
The glorious Broadway songbook of Jerry Herman is the focus of this charming musical revue, as we pay tribute to a true American master composer! Featuring the biggest standards from Broadway favorites including Hello Dolly!, Mame, Mack and Mabel, Dear World and La Cage Aux Folles, this special concert celebrates his exhaustive back catalog of work, as well as the women who sang his songs. Glamor, heart and soul all combine in this sparkling tribute that features an all-female cast, and devised in part by the man himself.
Jerry's prodigious talent allowed him to compose songs from across the spectrum of comedy, ballads and the big show-stoppers, earning him a ream of awards that includes to this date; Two Tony Awards for Hello, Dolly! and La Cage aux Folles, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Tony in 2009; two Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award. In 2010 he was made a Kennedy Center Honoree.
