Jerry Herman learned very well from his
mother how to entertain: generously and often! Mr. Herman has entertained
us with show after show, from "Milk and Honey" (1961) to
"Jerry's Girls" and a smash revival of "Mack and
Mabel" in England. Jerry Herman has given generously to theatre
audiences through his music and lyrics.
Jerry Herman proclaims that he intends to "live and love as hard and long" as he knows how, so you listen to his remarkable music, be prepared for something to touch your spirit and soul in places that have not been touched for a very, very long time.
Herman is a well-known Broadway composer and lyricist. His first Broadway score was Milk and Honey in 1961. Many hits soon followed, including Hello, Dolly! (1964) (Tony Award, best musical 1965), Mame (1966), Dear World (1969), Mack and Mabel (1974), The Grand Tour (1979), and La Cage Aux Folles (1984). Jerry's Girls, a review of his favorite songs, played on Broadway in 1985. Mr. Herman was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame in 1981 and the Theatre Hall Of Fame in 1986.
