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 two focuses on his lesser known shows, “Milk and Honey”, “Dear World”, and “Mack and Mabel”, and his ultimate comeback hit: “La Cage aux Folles”. Tune in to discover why there really is no tune like a showtune!
