With the title role originated by the great Angela Lansbury in Mame's Broadway debut on May 24, 1966 Mame
tickets were a hot seller from the start of the show's run. Running a total of 1,508 performances, Mame would become Lansbury's
most well-known role in the theater although she herself insisted in a 2006 interview that she would prefer to be best-remembered
for her role as Nellie Lovett in the Broadway premiere of Stephen Sondheim's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street"
as she is a great fan of the composer.
Telling the tale of the loveable and infectious Auntie Mame, as based on the novel of the same name by Patrick Dennis,
this show has been a hit for years, and theater tickets to the production are a great purchase.
When Mame is given custody of her young nephew, her free-wheeling lifestyle becomes a part of his upbringing until she sends
the boy to a boarding school on the poor recommendation of others. Before he is able to completely throw away his life on
an empty-headed debutante and his own arrogance, however, Mame takes him back into her home and teaches him the excitement
of life. This musical has won over fans for years, and promises to do the same in its current revival.
Adapted for film, performed in London's West End and revived on Broadway, "Mame" was a musical with a book by Jerome Lawrence
and Robert E. Lee and music and lyrics by the great Jerry Herman, and it garnered fans all over the world. If you do not yet
count yourself within that number, you will as soon as you see this fabulous production. So do yourself a favor and get tickets
to "Mame" while you still can.
