With a spectacular, soaring score including 'Look What Happened To Mabel', 'I Won’t Send Roses' and 'Time Heals Everything' Mack & Mabel is a beautiful, touching and ultimately heart-breaking story of two of Hollywood’s greatest icons.
1920's Hollywood. A time when movies were silent and cinema was magic. Mack Sennett, 'King of Comedy' and creator of The Keystone Cops, discovers Mabel Normand, a waitress from Brooklyn, casts her in his two-reelers and turns her into a star. So began one of Hollywood’s most tempestuous and heart-wrenching love stories. But life isn't like the movies - ambition, dalliance and the impending but inevitable threat of change put unbearable pressure on their relationship. Romance turns to jealousy as stardom invites scandal and deceit.
Mack and Mabel is a must see for fans of Jerry Herman's work as well as anyone who has recently seen and enjoyed Singin' In The Rain, Crazy For You and Top Hat. This revival is suitable for all ages and will appeal to anyone who likes an old fashioned musical.
