MAME

Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death! That’s the motto of Mame Dennis, one of musical theatre’s all-time greatest heroines, in this brassy, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis’s bestseller, Auntie Mame, starring critically acclaimed and two-time Olivier Award-winner Tracie Bennett as Mame (End of the Rainbow, Hairspray, Blood Brothers, Coronation, Scott & Bailey) and film, TV and theatre favourite Harriet Thorpe as Vera (Absolutely Fabulous, The Brittas Empire, new BBC comedy Mister WinnerWicked, Mamma Mia! – National Theatre & West End).

Set in New York City and spanning the Great Depression and World War II, Mame Dennis and her intellectual and arty clique are disrupted when her deceased brother’s 10-year-old son Patrick is entrusted into her care. Rather than bow to convention, Mame tries her hand at a number of jobs with comically, disastrous results but perseveres with good humour and an irrepressible sense of style.

Jerry Herman’s celebrated musicals includes the rousing title number, plus “Open a New Window,” “If He Walked into My Life,” “We Need a Little Christmas,” “Bosom Buddies” and “That’s How Young I Feel.”

With spirit, humour, class and wit, Mame is sure to thrill audiences for generations to come.

Presented by arrangement with Tams Witmark
