Jessica Martin

Jessica Martin (Me and My Girl, Mack and Mabel) has replaced Lyn Paul in the Menier Chocolate Factory's upcoming revival of the 1980s Jerry Herman revue Jerry's Girls. Paul (Calendar Girls, Blood Brothers) has withdrawn from the production for personal reasons.

Directed by Hannah Chissick (Pack of Lies, Eugenius), with choreography by Olivier winner Matt Cole (Fiddler on the Roof) and musical supervision and arrangements by Tony winner Sarah Travis (Sweeney Todd), previews will begin May 18 prior to an official opening May 22.

Martin will join the previously announced Olivier winner Cassidy Janson (& Juliet, Beautiful) and Julie Yammanee (Bonnie and Clyde, Spamilton). The performers will be backed by an all-female band.

The production, scheduled to continue through June 29, will also have set and costume design by Paul Farnsworth and lighting design by Philip Gladwell.

Celebrating the life and legacy of the late Tony-winning composer Herman, the revue will feature songs from Mame; Hello, Dolly!; Milk and Honey; Mack and Mabel; and La Cage aux Folles.

Jerry's Girls was created by Herman and collaborator Larry Alford in 1981, opened Off-Broadway to critical acclaim, and resulted in a hit national tour and a run on Broadway, staged and directed by Alford and choreographed by Wayne Cilento. The Broadway production played the St. James Theatre November 1985-April 1986 with a cast that included Tony winners Dorothy Loudon, Chita Rivera, and Leslie Uggams.

Jerry's Girls is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.
