Tony Award winning composer Jerry Herman has died at the age of 88.

Herman wrote the cheerful, good-natured music and lyrics for such classic shows as Mame, Hello, Dolly! and La Cage Aux Folles.

His goddaughter, Jane Dorian, confirmed his death and said he died in Miami, where he had been living.

He was the creator of 10 Broadway shows and contributor to several more, and won Tony Awards for best musical for Hello, Dolly! in 1964 and La Cage Aux Folles in 1983.

He also won two Grammys — for the Mame cast album and for Hello, Dolly! as song of the year.
