Christine Pedi, Tony nominee Stephanie D’Abruzzo, and Stephanie Umoh will lead the cast of Jerry’s Girls, which begins August 5 and will run through August 13 at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s.
Jerry’s Girls, directed by Pamela Hunt, pays tribute to Tony-, Grammy-, Olivier-, and Drama Desk-winning American songwriter Jerry Herman.

The show celebrates his gift of songwriting that captures the meaning and spirit of musical theatre. It features an all-female cast to depict how Herman has given voice to some of the most iconic women roles on Broadway.
Pedi can be seen in the Off-Broadway revues NEWSical the Musical and Spamilton. She also played Mama Morton in the Broadway production of Chicago.
