Menier Chocolate Factory to present Jerry’s Girls revival

Jerry's Girls

London’s Menier Chocolate Factory has announced a revival of Jerry Herman’s musical revue Jerry’s Girls.

Directed by Hannah Chissick, with choreography by Matt Cole, musical supervision and arrangements by Sarah Travis, and an all-female band, this new production runs at the venue from 22 May – 29 June 2024.

Jerry’s Girls celebrates the life and legacy of legendary award-winning Broadway composer Jerry Herman.

Featuring an all-female cast of Cassidy Janson, Lyn Paul and Julie Yammanee, the show features songs from such timeless musicals as Mame, Hello Dolly!, Milk and Honey, Mack and Mabel, and La Cage Aux Folles.

Jerry’s Girls was created by Herman and collaborator Larry Alford in 1981, and opened Off-Broadway to critical acclaim, and resulted in a hit National Tour and a Tony-nominated run on Broadway, directed and choreographed by Wayne Cilento.

Jerry Herman’s list of awards and honours is seemingly endless – it includes multiple Tony, Grammy, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards, the Johnny Mercer Award, the Richard Rodgers Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award, and an entry into the Theatre Hall of Fame.
