Milk and Honey

Overview

Milk and Honey, Jerry Herman’s first Broadway book musical, is a romantic comedy-drama set in Israel during the nation’s early days of independence. A group of American widows – led by the hilariously blunt and amiable Clara – tour the country by bus in hopes of landing a husband. Meanwhile, two lonely Americans named Ruth and Phil meet and begin a mid-life romance, hoping to overcome some obstacles to their happiness. Herman’s tuneful score includes “Shalom,” “There’s No Reason in the World,” and the rousing title song.
