There is never an evening...
when, somewhere in the world,
the music and lyrics of
Jerry Herman

are not being sung by a lady in a red headdress,
or a lady with a bugle,
or a middle-aged man in a wig and a boa.

Hello, Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage Aux Folles
are home to some of the most popular, most-often performed
and most successful musical hero(in)es of all time,
and have given Jerry the distinction of being the only composer-lyricist in history
to have had three musicals that ran more than 1,500 consecutive performances on Broadway.

His first Broadway show was Milk and Honey (1961),
followed by Hello, Dolly! (1964),
Mame (1966), Dear World (1969), Mack & Mabel (1974),
The Grand Tour (1979), La Cage Aux Folles (1983), Jerry’s Girls (1985)
and "Mrs. Santa Claus" (1996), a CBS TV special starring Angela Lansbury.
(Showtune, a revue of Jerry's life’s work, is performing in regional theatres around the country
and two of Jerry's classic songs are the emotional highlights of the hit Disney-Pixar film WALL-E.)

Jerry Herman's string of awards and honors includes multiple
Tonys
Grammys
Drama Desk Awards
the Kennedy Center Award
the Johnny Mercer Award
the Richard Rodgers Award
the Oscar Hammerstein Award
the Frederick Lowe Award
the Songwriters Hall of Fame
and the Theatre Hall of Fame.
