Biographical notes:

Jerry Herman (b. 1933) is a composer and lyricist of Broadway musicals. Herman writes in an easily accessible, infectiously tuneful and optimistic style with a winning combination of innocence and wit. Finding particular success in the 1960s with Hello, Dolly! and Mame, his style seemed more out-of-step during the turbulent 70s, though he and many others regard his score for Mack and Mabel (1974) as his best. He found renewed success with La cage aux folles (1983).
