Based on an idea by Leonard Spigelglass, Book by Michael Stewart, Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman. Directed by Peter Hackett. Musical Direction by Scott Storr. Choreography by Keith Coughlin.
Set in the silent film world of slapstick routines, pratfalls, wild chases, and nailbiting moments, Mack & Mabel is the story of the tempestuous love affair of two silent film icons: director, Mack Sennet, the "King of Comedy" and the star comedienne, Mabel Normand. Come listen to the spectacular soaring score that Jerry Herman (Mame, Hello Dolly, La Cage Aux Folles) claimed as his favorite. It includes beautiful ballads,Time Heals Everything, I Won't Send You Roses and rousing showstoppers, I Wanna MakeThe World Laugh and Tap Your Troubles Away.
