Lyrics & Lyricists: Jerry Herman: You I Like

May 24, 2020

This program was available only for a limited time from May 24 to May 31, 2020.

A spirited celebration of one of Broadway’s greatest composer/lyricists.

From Hello, Dolly! and Mame to La Cage aux Folles, no one has written “showtunes” with as much exuberance as Jerry Herman, whose joyful scores have sent us from the theater humming for more than 50 years. His musicals offer an optimistic approach to the human condition, finding common ground with his audience by showing us that the differences between us are, in fact, what unite us. Join us as Andy Einhorn leads a terrific cast in an unforgettable evening celebrating a Broadway master.

With a wit as sharp as a vodka stinger, Jerry Herman’s Mame opened at the Winter Garden on Broadway 54 years ago this week. Marking the occasion, 92Y is delighted to bring its irresistible Lyrics & Lyricists February 2020 tribute to the master lyricist to our screens for the very first time.
