New Life For Sherman’s Broadway Flop

Special To The Jewish Week

Of all the singers and comedians who leapt to prominence in the early 1960s, none was more successful than Allan Sherman, whose Jewish-inflected song parodies convulsed a nation. But Sherman never succeeded at one of his greatest ambitions, which was to write a popular Broadway musical. Now comes  “The Fig Leaves are Falling,” Sherman’s big Broadway flop, which will be revived this month by a theater company called Unsung Musicals.
