Jerry Herman

There is never an evening...
when, somewhere in the world, the music and lyrics of
Jerry Herman

are not being sung by a lady in a red headdress, or a lady with a bugle, or a middle-aged man in a wig and a boa.

Hello, Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage Aux Folles
are home to some of the most popular, most-often performed and most successful musical hero(in)es of all time,
and have given Jerry the distinction of being the only composer-lyricist in history
to have had three musicals that ran more than 1,500 consecutive performances on Broadway.

His first Broadway show was Milk and Honey (1961), followed by
Hello, Dolly! (1964), Mame (1966), Dear World (1969), Mack & Mabel (1974),
The Grand Tour (1979), La Cage Aux Folles (1983), Jerry’s Girls (1985)
and "Mrs. Santa Claus" (1996), a CBS TV special starring Angela Lansbury.
Showtune, a revue of his life’s work, is performing in regional theatres around the country
and...two of Jerry's classic songs are the emotional highlights of the hit Disney-Pixar film WALL-E.

His string of awards and honors includes multiple Tonys, Grammys, Drama Desk Awards,
the Kennedy Center Award, the Johnny Mercer Award, the Richard Rodgers Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award,
the Frederick Lowe Award, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Theatre Hall of Fame.
