It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

Not an evening goes by without someone in the world performing the music and lyrics of Jerry Herman—whether it’s a woman in a red headdress, a lady with a bugle, or a middle-aged man in a wig and a boa. The wildly popular productions of Hello, Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage aux Folles have given Jerry Herman the distinction of being the only composer-lyricist in history to have three musicals run more than 1,500 consecutive performances on Broadway. Led by Donald Pippin, one of the Great White Way’s most honored conductors, the NSO Pops celebrates Herman’s greatest hits with classic tunes from his triumphant trio of musicals, as well as other fan favorites Mack and Mabel and Milk and Honey.

Donald Pippin, conductor

Melissa Errico, soprano

Debbie Gravitte, mezzo-soprano

Hugh Panaro, tenor

Ron Raines, baritone
