STC’s Cabaret Series consists of three professionally-produced Cabarets each year, in which the Main Stage Lobby is transformed into a wonderful performance venue, with seating for up to 120 guests at candlelit tables. The atmosphere is intimate and relaxing. Beer and wine is available, as are light appetizers of fruit, cheese, and desserts.
The second show of the series, Hello, Jerry!, is a salute to the legendary Broadway composer Jerry Herman. In addition to iconic musical numbers from his hit shows like Hello, Dolly! (“Before the Parade Passes By”), Mame (“If He Walked Into My Life”), and La Cage aux Folles (“The Best of Times”), the evening will also feature songs from some of Herman’s other tuneful shows like Mack & Mabel (“I Won’t Send Roses”), Dear World (“I’ve Never Said I Love You”), The Grand Tour (“I Belong Here”), and others.
Jerry Herman is a two-time Tony Award winner and Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre Award winner. He is the recipient of the 2010 Kennedy Center Honors.
The cast of six features Ryan Blanning (Visiting Mr. Green), Matt Dunn (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), Dyan McBride (Always… Patsy Cline), Andrea St. Clair (Closer Than Ever), and STC Young Professionals Conservatory student Serena Feniger. As is tradition, Executive Producing Director Michael Laun makes a cameo or two. Graham Sobelman (piano) and Jeremy Bolt (trumpet) accompany the soloists.
