Reviews

"Should be required reading for anyone who has ever enjoyed a comic lyric or a brassy piece of melody from Hello, Dolly!, Mame or La Cage aux Folles. It's a splendid biography, festooned with a generous analysis of his libretto and compositions. Herman's imperishable spirit is all here in this personal, sharp-as-tacks portrait of a composer-lyricist whose heart--and archive--seems to have been an open book."--Randy Gener, American Theatre

"This is an extraordinary and invaluable work about the extraordinary and invaluable talent Jerry Herman. Any lover of the musical theatre should be grateful to add it to their library. I know I am."--Fred Ebb, Lyricist
