Following a sell-out run at St. James Studio last month, musical revue Jerry’s Girls will transfer to Jermyn Street Theatre for a limited three week run from Tuesday 12 to Sunday 31 May 2015, with a press night on Friday 15 May.
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 andLa 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.
Emma Barton will join the cast, alongside Ria Jones and Sarah-Louise Young who both return to the production:
With over 30 songs, intermingled with stories of Jerry’s life and audio clips of the man himself – whose only dream was to one day have one show on Broadway – “Jerry’s Girls” is a wonderful tribute to the multi-award winning composer/lyricist whose work will go on forever. In his time, Jerry has worked with some truly wonderful and inspiring ‘Girls’ – Angela Lansbury, Barbara Streisand, Carol Channing, even Ginger Rogers and thanks to this awesome production Jerry has three new ‘Girls’ to add to his famous roster. My Final word, then “Jerry’s Girls” is a must-see for any fan of musical theatre.
