1/8: Jerry’s Girls at Cleveland Play House



Jerry Herman was 29 when his first Broadway musical, From A to Z, debuted. Working at the end of Broadway’s golden age, he penned a dozen hit musicals, including Hello, Dolly!, Mame and La Cage Aux Folles. Now 78, Herman was honored last year with a lifetime-achievement Tony Award. That’s good enough reason for Ensemble Theatre to roll out Jerry’s Girls, a revue of his best songs, including “It Only Takes a Moment,” “That’s How Young I Feel” and, of course, “Hello, Dolly!” The show opens at 8 p.m. with performances through January 31 at the Cleveland Play House’s Studio One Theatre (8500 Euclid Ave., 216.321.2930). Tickets: $12-$24. — Michael Gill
