I've never understood "Erma." The original 1934 character, carried over to the 1962 off-Broadway revival, was Bonnie. The Lincoln Center version didn't "create" the role, they just renamed her. Why? I've always hated the name change.

Originally, Bonnie only sang "Where Are The Men," the only song from the original score never to appear in a revival. In the '62 version, they instead gave her two songs not from the original show, "Heaven Hop" and (the rather bottom drawer song, IMO) "Let's Step Out." In 1987, they scrapped those two songs and gave her (i.e. the renamed Erma) "Buddie, Beware."
