Mack and Mabel

Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman
Book by Michael Stewart (Based on an idea by Leonard Spigelglass)

The Story: The tale of legendary director Mack Sennett and his greatest star, comedienne Mabel Normand (Originally Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters) is told in flashback with Mack (Ron Daum) as the narrator as he reminisces about the past, recalling his triumphs and his turbulent love affair with Mabel (Alina Ziak) whom he had discovered as a waitress and made a star. The bountiful score (and Jerry Herman’s personal favorite) includes “Tap Your Troubles Away”, “Time Heals Everything”, “I Won’t Send Roses”, “Hundreds of Girls” “When Mabel Comes in the Room” and many more. A saga of the silent film era "when movies were movies"

Others in the cast include Lisamarie Harrison as Lottie Ames, Seth Renne as Fatty Arbuckle, Norman Wilson as William Desmond Taylor and Thomas Slater as Frank. The production is directed by John Oules and Matt Grossman is musical director. Original choreography is by Claire Hallstead Roche and is adapted by Susan Ruddock. Alex Diaz is the production's lighting designer and Kay Vega is the producer.
