Staged Reading of Broadway Sensation Mame
The Musical Theatre Guild is comprised of the finest musical theatre artists in the Los Angeles area, producing staged concert readings (book in hand) of Broadway's forgotten gems and undiscovered treasures. They now bring Mame, based on the novel Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis and the subsequent stage play by Lawrence and Lee, to Glendale's Alex Theatre. "Light the candles, get the ice out, roll the rug up!" It's Mame! One of Broadway's most luminous characters comes to our stage to remind us that "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" Featuring one of Jerry Herman's most tuneful and joyous scores, Auntie Mame takes us on a wild ride of life with her inherited little nephew, Patrick. Mame premiered in 1966 starring Angela Lansbury, Bea Arthur and Frankie Michaels, who all won Tony Awards for their performances. It was nominated for an additional 5 Tony awards and ran for 1,508 performances. A subsequent film version premiered in 1974 starring Lucille Ball. So pour yourself some champagne and hang on as we coax the blues right out of your horn!
