Marking the Broadway debut of the incomparable Jerry Herman, Milk and Honey centers on the romance between two Americans in Israel -- a lonely widow on tour and an unhappily married man visiting his daughter. Set against the backdrop of Israel's struggle for recognition as an independent nation, Milk and Honey is a tale of love, optimism, and second chances. With his first Broadway score, Mr. Herman showed the promise of the wealth of hummable, memorable songs he would compose in the future.

When a group of businessmen scheme to drill for oil in Paris, there is only one force in the world that can stop them: Countess Aurelia, the Madwoman of Chaillot. With the help of idealism, love, and poetry - not to mention two other madwomen, a local garbageman, and a pair of young lovers - the Countess fights to save Paris and the world from greed. With Dear World's opening on Broadway in 1969, Mr. Herman became the first composer-lyricist to have three productions simultaneously running on Broadway, and 2015 Oscar Hammerstein Honoree Angela Lansbury's performance won her the second of her five (so far) Tony Awards.
