Theatre: ÔJerryÕs GirlsÕ to dazzle at Chanticleers
By Al Murdach
Chanticleers Theatre winds up its 2013 season with a rousing production of ÒJerryÕs Girls,Ó a musical revue based on the songs of composer/ lyricist Jerry Herman, directed by Gary Wright. The show, which runs from October 11 to November 10, is an expanded version of an earlier Broadway run. It opened with Carol Channing and an all female cast on Broadway in 1985 and features scenes and songs from HermanÕs greatest hits, including ÒHello, Dolly!Ó ÒMame,Ó ÒMack and Mabel,Ó and ÒLa Cage aux Folles.Ó The production was dubbed by the New York Times as Òa brilliantly lively and scintillating eveningÉÓ and promises to be a smashing way to end a stellar season at Chanticleers.
