Music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. Concept by Jerry Herman and Larry Alford. Bankstown Theatre Company (NSW). Bankstown Arts Centre. March 23 – 31, 2012.
Celebrating the larger than life ladies of theatre launched by the show tunes of Jerry Herman, Jerry’s Girls packs a succession of great Broadway tunes into two hours.
This musical revue celebrates the showstoppers Herman composed for those classic, more mature, musical theatre leading ladies, Dolly Levi, Mame and the drag queen Za-Za / Albin (Hello, Dolly, Mame and La Cage aux Folles), together with often equally terrific songs written for his less successful shows.
