Goodspeed Musicals will present its much-anticipated new production of MAME, the brassy musical comedy from April 20 - July 1 at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Conn. Yesterday, the company met the press and BroadwayWorld was there to capture the big event. Meet the cast and get an sneak peek of the musical in the video below!
MAME tells the story of the madcap adventures of Auntie Mame and her adoring nephew. Surrounded by an eccentric cast of characters, she celebrates the Roaring 20s, overcomes tragedy and sails through life without missing a fad or a dance step. Jerry Herman's delightful score is packed with favorites "Bosom Buddies," "We Need a Little Christmas" and more. Brimming with optimism and zest, Mame will keep you laughing while warming your heart!
Mame will run April 20 through July 1, 2012 [Official Press Opening May 9, 2011]. Curtain times are Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Thursday at 7:30 p.m. (with select performances at 2:00 p.m.), Friday at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. (with select performances at 6:30 p.m.).
