“Light the candles, get the ice out, roll the rug up!” It’s Mame!!!!

One of Broadway’s most luminous characters comes to our stage to remind us that “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!” Featuring one of Jerry Herman’s most tuneful and joyous scores, Auntie Mame takes us on a wild ride of life with her inherited little nephew, Patrick.

MAME premiered in 1966 starring Angela Lansbury, Bea Arthur and Frankie Michaels, who all won Tony© Awards for their performances. It was nominated for an additional 5 Tony© awards and ran for 1,508 performances. A subsequent film version of the musical premiered in 1974 starring Lucille Ball.

So pour yourself some champagne and hang on as we coax the blues right out of your horn!
