“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.”
Composer Jerry Herman is well-known for amazing musicals such as Hello, Dolly!, Mame, La Cage Aux Folles and more. He was nominated for the Tony Award five times, and won twice, for Hello, Dolly! and La Cage aux Folles. His most famous composition, Hello, Dolly!, became a #1 hit for Louis Armstrong. I Am What I Am from La Cage aux Folles became a disco favorite by Gloria Gaynor. His timeless music will be brought to life on the Kleinhans stage with singers and your BPO!
