In Memoriam – Jerry Herman

A couple of days ago we lost one of our greatest musical theater writers – Jerry Herman. He will be missed but he gave us so many great nights in the theater. All of the remembrances note his greatest works – “Hello Dolly”; “Mame”; and “La Cage aux Folles.” They are all amazing and enjoyable and I have seen all of them on the stage. But my favorite is one of his “failed” musicals – “Mack and Mabel.” It is fabulous and I urge you to take the time to listen to that score and appreciate his genius. Hopefully I will get to see it live again. We miss you already, Jerry.
