Jason Graae, “Perfect Hermany,” 2021

Jason Graae discusses his latest show, “Perfect Hermany,” singing the songs of computer/lyricist Jerry Herman, streaming on the 42nd Street Moon (April 10 -May 2) and Musical Theatre West  (April 15-25) websites, with host Richard Wolinsky.

Jason Graae has appeared on Broadway in A Grand Night for Singing, Falsettos, Stardust, and Do Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? and off-Broadway in several shows, including the original cast of Forever Plaid.  He’s appeared on television as a guest on Frasier, Friends, China Beach and other shows, and has appeared innumerable times in various concerts. He has also sung on over 45 CDs, including reconstructions of several musicals of the 1920s through 1940s.

Jerry Herman (1931-2019) was the composer/lyricist of such shows as Helly Dolly!, Mama, Mack & Mabel, Milk and Honey and La Cage Aux Folles, along with several lesser known musicals.

Jason Graae has performed several times with both 42nd Street Moon and Musical Theatre West, and along with various benefit concerts for Moon, he appeared on “Scrooge in Love” on the Gateway Theatre stage in late 2019.

Both productions also feature local singers as a warm-up act. The 42nd Street Moon production streams at specific times Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only. The Musical Theatre West production streams on demand.
