The music of American composer Allan Sherman will come alive in a Jewish Repertory Theatre production of the musical "Hello Muddah! Hello Fadduh!" in Road Less Traveled Theatre (639 Main St.).
The show, which opens Thursday in a regional premiere, features plenty of music by the composer, who had a short but prolific career writing joke and parody songs. The most famous of these, "Hello Muddah! Hellow Fadduh!" remains popular to this day. In a release, the show's director, Thomas Dooney, described the musical as a "rich American tapestry observed through the skew of Jewish-American lens."
The production runs through March 22 and stars Loraine O'Donnell, Wendy Hall, Don Gervasi, Tim Newell and David Butler. Theresa Quinn serves as music director.
