Jerry’s Girls is a captivating tribute to the all-American master of song Jerry Herman that brings center stage the 'larger-than-life' women from such shows center stage: matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi of Hello, Dolly!, exuberant Auntie Mame Dennis of Mame, the benignly eccentric Countess Aurelia of Dear World, screen legend Mabel Normand of Mack and Mabel, and the flamboyant ZaZa of La Cage Aux Folles. It affectionately celebrates his special gift for writing songs that capture the true spirit of the American musical theatre. The all-female cast will remind us of how Jerry Herman has given voice to some of the most iconic roles, ballads and show-stoppers ever written for Broadway. A winner of the Tony, Grammy, Olivier, and Drama Desk Awards, Jerry Herman is the master tunesmith of our time.
The York Theatre Company’s acclaimed Musicals in Mufti series of musical theatre gems, performed in a simply-staged, book-in-hand concert format, celebrates its 23rd historic year of shows from the past that deserve a second look. Mufti means “in street clothes, without the trappings associated with a full production.”
