Jerry's Girls: The Jerry Herman Revue

Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman
Concepts by Larry Alford, Wayne Cilento and Jerry Herman
Directed and Choreographed by Ellen Isom

Thursday, December 1 – Sunday, December 18

Purchase Tickets

Jerry’s Girls, the Broadway musical revue, is a sparkling journey through Herman’s musical catalogue. With its abundance of beloved and celebratory pleasures, this is a refreshing tonic for lifting our spirits and celebrating one of Broadway’s greatest Jewish composers. In song after song, in Broadway hits like “Mame,” “La Cage aux Folles” and “Hello, Dolly!,” Herman has made it his goal in life to send people out of a theatre humming his tunes and there’s no denying that his relentlessly upbeat and melodic songs do the trick. This tribute to the song catalogue of Jerry Herman is sure to leave you smiling, and with a song in your heart.
