An Evening with Allan Sherman

sherman-flyer-v2“Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh.
Here I am at Camp Granada.
Camp is very entertaining,
And they say we’ll have some fun if it stops raining…”

…so began the Grammy Award-­‐winning lamentation by Allan Sherman. In the early 1960’s Sherman became an instant celebrity when he sang and recorded his devilishly clever parody lyrics on the album “My Son, The Folk Singer.” His comic genius hit just the right nerve with the American public and his first 3 Warner Bros. albums shot to Number One. Sherman’s work was a continuation of the tradition of parodists such as Spike Jones, was part of a Golden Age of Parody that included Tom Lehrer, and was the inspiration for contemporary artists such as Weird Al Yankovic.

The Men of Temple Ahavat Shalom and the TAS Sisterhood have teamed up to present “Hello Again! The Songs of Allan Sherman,” a one-woman show from singer/comedienne Linden Waddell, that is a tribute to the genius of Allan Sherman. Directed and choreographed by award-winning director Janet Miller, with accompaniment by renowned musical director Marjorie Poe on keyboard, the concert delights Sherman fans and newcomers by presenting some of his best-known works and also includes lesser-known material, sure to enlighten even the most diehard Sherman enthusiast and serve as an introduction to his work to those more familiar with Weird Al. This a zany and professional performance is sure to please the entire family.
