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.
