Jerry Herman Revue, Showtune, Will Close on April 13

News   Jerry Herman Revue, Showtune, Will Close on April 13 Showtune, the new Jerry Herman revue directed by Joey McKneely and devised by Paul Gilger, which was recently extended at The Theatre at St. Peter's to May 11, has decided to call it quits on April 13. It will have played 11 previews and 53 performances.

The collection of Herman's populist musical theatre tunes is told in the context of fresh relationships within the new conceptual revue. The show was previously announced for an engagement to March 30 only.

Arrangement are by James Followell, and Bobby Peaco is on piano.

Here's how the show is billed: "Showtune weaves together some of Herman's lesser-known riches from Mack and Mabel, Dear World, The Grand Tour, Milk and Honey and A Day in Hollywood, with fresh and surprising turns on the popular standards from the Tony Award-winning musicals Hello, Dolly!; Mame; and La Cage aux Folles."

New productions of Showtune have been set up for the Pasadena Playhouse, beginning June 27, and at Boca Raton's Caldwell Theatre, starting Nov. 9.

The New York cast includes Sandy Binion, Paul Harman, Russell Arden Koplin, Tom Korbee, Karen Murphy, Bobby Peaco and Martin Vidnovic. Theatre at Saint Peter's is at 619 Lexington Avenue at 54th Street, lower level of Citicorp Center.

Tickets are $65. For information, call (212) 239-6200.
