Al Jolson - The World's Greatest Entertainer
The World's Greatest Entertainer

This website is dedicated to the man who was known as The World's Greatest Entertainer, a superstar before the word was coined, and whose musical heritage created much of the entertainment industry we know today. With text, photos, music and more, here is the source to learn about Al Jolson, the master showman of American theatre, whose career spanned fifty years of American Music history. If you have never heard Jolson, you are in for a treat, as many of these pages contain excerpts from some of his most popular or memorable songs. As Jolie would have said,
"You ain't heard nothin' yet!"

TEN YEARS AGO... Hy Juter produced THE JAZZ SINGER, which was booked into Playhouse 91 in Manhattan for a 5 week limited run. The theatre extended the run by one week and all six weeks sold out. Among the many great reviews it received were those in the NEW YORK TIMES and VARIETY. This will be the first commercial run of The Jazz Singer in New York.
Brian Childers, star of his recent smash hit DANNY AND SYLVIA: THE DANNY KAYE MUSICAL will take on the lead role in his new JAZZ SINGER production. He will be joined by Broadway actress Jennifer Babiak and New York mainstay Itzy Firestone with additional casting to be announced soon. The musical is being cast and directed by Jamibeth Margolis.

Last week's radio show took place while Jolson was on a try-out tour in Chicago of Hold On To Your Hats, his last Broadway show. It was on that tour that Ruby Keeler left the cast. The show subsequently opened in New York to rave reviews. Here is a page devoted to the show, with some photos and song links. Don't let it get you down, take a look!
