The musical is described as follows: "Jerry's Girls is a captivating tribute to that all-American master of song, Jerry Herman, which brings the larger-than-life women of his shows center stage. The all-female cast reminds us of how Jerry Herman has given voice to some of the most iconic showstoppers ever written for Broadway."
