Overview

Jerry Herman is one of Broadway's most celebrated composers and lyricists. He is the author of two of the biggest successes in musical theater history: Hello, Dolly! and Mame. Herman is also responsible for Mack and Mabel, Milk and Honey, and the musical version of the film La Cage Aux Folles. All of these have been produced in numerous productions, both professional and amateur, around the world. He is currently writing a new musical, Miss Spectacular, commissioned by Steve Wynn to be produced in a new theater at his Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. This book offers all of the lyrics to Herman's well-loved songs along with rare production photographs from all of his shows. It includes early lyrics from Herman's first Broadway revues and shows, songs cut from his best-loved shows, and new lyrics. Herman's songs have been sung by all the masters of American pop song-from Barbra Streisand and Ethel Merman to Louis Armstrong and Michael Crawford-but have never been collected before. In addition to the lyrics, Herman offers his personal reminiscences and comments on the lyrics and the shows. For the fan of Broadway theater and of Jerry Herman's works, this book will be a treasure.
