Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Guy James present:
A musical revue celebrating the works of Jerry Herman
30 years after it opened on Broadway, musical revue Jerry’s Girls will be
revived in a limited two-week run at the St. James Studio.
Featuring songs from classic musicals including Hello Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage
Aux Folles, Jerry’s Girls brings together an all-female cast to celebrate
Jerry’s special gift for writing songs that capture the true spirit of the great
American musical, honouring the legacy of the multi Tony Award-winning composer
and lyricist of some of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time.
Jerry Herman’s many Broadway shows include Hello Dolly!, Mame, Dear World, Mack
& Mabel, The Grand Tour and La Cage Aux Folles. His string of awards and honours
includes multiple Tony, Grammy, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards, the Johnny Mercer
Award, the Richard Rodgers Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award, the Songwriters
Hall of Fame and the Theatre Hall of Fame. Jerry also has the distinction of
being the only composer-lyricist in history to have three musicals run for more
than 1,500 performances on Broadway.
Created by Jerry Herman and collaborator Larry Alford in 1981, Jerry’s Girls
originated as a modest cabaret presentation at Onstage, a nightclub located in
New York’s theatre district in midtown-Manhattan. After La Cage Aux Folles
opened to rave reviews two years later, a full-scale, all-star production was
mounted which opened at Broadway’s St. James Theatre in 1985 with a cast
including Chita Rivera, who received a Tony-Award nomination for her
Jerry’s Girls is directed by Kate Golledge and choreographed by Matthew Cole. It
is presented by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Guy James, the team
behind the 2014 London premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me a Little at the
St. James Studio, which played a sold out run in August before returning in
October due to popular demand.
