Mack and Mabel
from: 07 May 2019 - 11 May 2019
venue: Theatre Royal Nottingham
From the era of when ‘Movies Were Movies’ comes the smash hit musical Mack & Mabel, which returns to Nottingham in 2019 to both thrill and delight!
Based on the real-life romance between legendary filmmaker Mack Sennett and his beautiful, talented rising star Mabel Normand, it captures the excitement of Hollywood’s golden age, the fun and action of the silent screen, the hysterical madcap chaos of Fatty Arbuckle and the Keystone Kops, and the glamour of the bathing beauties. A world where heroes wore capes, girls were tied to the railway tracks and it all ended with a pie in the face.
Mack & Mabel features an outstanding score by the great Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!, La Cage aux Folles) and is packed full of classic Broadway hits including I Won’t Send Roses, Time Heals Everything and Tap Your Troubles Away.
Brought to you by the multi-award-winning Carlton Operatic Society (Grease, West Side Story, Top Hat) this wonderful musical comedy is both a poignant love story and a joyous celebration of the excitement, glamour and sparkling humour of the era of silent movies.
