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.
Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
