Jerry's Girls, celebrating the music of Tony Award-winning Hello, Dolly! and Mame composer-lyricist Jerry Herman, opened on Broadway Dec. 18, 1985. In celebration of the production, Playbill.com has put together a musical tribute.
The musical featured leading ladies Dorothy Loudon, Chita Rivera and Leslie Uggams and included songs from Hello, Dolly!; Mame; La Cage aux Folles; and Mack and Mabel, among others.
Here's a look at some of our favorite performances of Herman's irrepressibly tuneful music.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
