Mack & Mabel
18th - 22nd October 2022
The Theatre Royal, Bath
Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman, and book by Michael Stewart, with 2016 revisions by Francine Pascal.
A Brooklyn deli-delivery girl turns up on the set of silent movie director, Mack Sennet, creator of the Keystone Cops. She catches his eye and soon his heart. Before long, Mabel Normand is starring in Sennett's two-reel movies, and together they bring glamour to the silver screen. But showbiz and ambition make for a tempestuous relationship. Out of the silent movie era and the heady heights of 1920s Hollywood, Mack and Mabel tells the heart-wrenching love story of two of its greatest legends; director Mack Sennett 'The King of Comedy' and his star, comedienne Mabel Normand.
This dramatic love story interwoven with Herman's wonderful score including Tap Your Troubles, Time Heals Everything and I Won't Send Roses is sure to have you tapping your way home!
