AMERICAN SHOWSTOPPERS: An Evening of Jerry Herman

Who doesn’t love a great show tune?  Noted arranger and producer Fred Barton, whose work is heard regularly in concert halls around the country and on TV shows including The Magic School Bus, Olivia, Magic Pets, and Eureeka’s Castle, his 13-piece orchestra, and star-studded cast of performers are back to celebrate American composer and lyricist Jerry Herman. Herman’s epic contributions to Broadway and Hollywood will be celebrated in an evening exploring his career from his early revue days to his heyday of mega-musicals such as Hello Dolly!, Mame, Dear World, La Cage Aux Folles, Mack & Mabel, and many more. Performers include Klea Blackhurst, Toni Di Buono, Jeffry Denman, Tari Kelly, Damon Kirsche, Beth Leavel, Karen Murphy, Lee Roy Reams, and featuring Lianne Marie Dobbs, AJ Hunsucker, Jesse Luttrell, with the Scott Thompson Dancers.
