The Broadway community came out to celebrate the life of Jerry Herman at a memorial concert at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (where two revivals of his Hello, Dolly!, both led by Carol Channing, have played) February 3.
Produced by Michael Feinstein, Herman's goddaughter Jane Dorian, and Herman's husband Terry Marler, the concert commemorated the late composer-lyricist with several of Mr. Herman's former collaborators and stars from some of his most beloved titles, including Bernadette Peters (Hello, Dolly! and Mack and Mabel), Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles), and recent Hello, Dolly! national tour stars Betty Buckley and John Bolton.
