Episode 88: Jerry Herman: Poet of the Showtune, Part One

In This Episode

For a special, two-part show, Jamie and Rob take an in-depth look at the life, work, and legacy of Broadway composer and lyricist Jerry Herman—“the poet of the showtune”. They chat with performers Joel Grey, Florence Lacey, Lee Roy Reams, and Alix Korey, music director Andy Einhorn, producer Barry Brown, and actress and cabaret star Molly Pope. Part one focuses on “Hello, Dolly!” and “Mame”, two of Jerry’s biggest hits, and “The Grand Tour”, one of his biggest flops. Tune in to discover why there really is no tune like a showtune!
