Mame, the 1966 multiple Tony Award winning musical, based on the biographical novel Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade by Patrick Dennis and subsequent play and film Auntie Mame by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, is a wonderful, warm, and witty narrative enhanced with Jerry Herman’s evocative, lively, and sentimental music and lyrics. Bohemian Mame Dennis is a larger-than-life personality living in New York City during the Great Depression. Mame has a collection of eccentric, wealthy society friends and her life is one endless party; that is until her young nephew Patrick “walks into her life.” Her mad-cap, free spirited lifestyle with its focus on “today” changes while looking after her brother’s son, leading to a “new window” opening for both in this life-affirming tale seen through Patrick’s eyes.
There will be a champagne and dessert reception between 7:00-7:30pm for subscribers and members attending the March 14 performance.
