Quotes & Highlights

To get into the spirit of the silent film era of Hollywood, the cast and crew visited the Silent Movie Museum in Niles and took a trip to see Jason Graae’s cabaret performance at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco that saluted composer Jerry Herman’s 80th birthday.

Description

This romantic tale of the silent film era tells the story of legendary director Mack Sennett (best known for his Keystone Kops_) and his greatest star, the adorable Mabel Normand. It features a musical score by Jerry Herman (_Hello, Dolly!, Mame) that is considered one of his very best. Set in an early 20th-century movie studio, this delightful, intelligent musical captures the spirit of an exciting time when this new, creative industry was springing to life, with scenes that range from madcap comedy to frolicking bathing beauties to intimate romance. Don’t miss this rarely-performed musical gem!
