Mame - 1966 - Broadway

Based on the novel Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis


Based on the play Auntie Mame by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee

“Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!” So says the aunt we all wished we had, Auntie Mame. This adored character of theatrical literature comes to the Lyric stage for the first time in Jerry Herman’s delightful musical “Mame.” Join Mame as she leads her young nephew Patrick through life in New York during the depression era; traveling and growing into a young man as Mame struggles to be a fit mother. Andrea Huber (Desireé Armfeldt from “A Little Night Music”) will be our Mame and Leigh Scarritt (Aunt Alicia from “Gigi”) is featured as her actress friend, Vera Charles. “Mame” features a great score including “Open A New Window,” “We Need A Little Christmas,” “You’re My Best Girl,” “Bosom Buddies,” and of course the title song, “Mame.” Don’t miss this family treat

'Namedropping in the Wings' is intended as a lighthearted memoir of how someone in his early twenties with no technical knowledge or training whatsoever became celebrated as a sound expert. It began when a very green 17-year-old got a job in a small London theatre where the artistic director was a young Peter Hall, the genius who went on to found the Royal Shakespeare Company.'

Cyrano is the most interesting person in any room - a wordsmith, a charmer, a ruthless fighter. She works twice as hard and runs twice as fast as any of the pretty boys, because she's deeply ashamed of something about herself. She's fallen hard for Roxanne, the brilliant, beautiful new girl in town with a penchant for poetry and a way with words. Just like Cyrano.

Hayesville, North Carolina is a charming, historic, mountain town with a population of less than 400.

But just a few blocks from Main Street, Hayesville holds an unusual surprise––The Peacock Performing Arts Center, a venue that looks as it if had been plucked from the arts district of a large metropolitan city.

San Francisco’s revered 42nd Street Moon kicks off its 2021 “Moonbeams” season with Jason Graae in Perfect Hermany, a tribute to the late, great Jerry Herman, writer of such classic musicals as Hello, Dolly!, Mame and La Cage Aux Folles. The title Perfect Hermany is an unusually apt one as Graae is the perfect interpreter of Herman’s work, having starred in a much-lauded production Herman’s The Grand Tour in LA and toured for years with Herman in Hello, Jerry!, a revue of Herman’s work. Perfect Hermany is available for streaming on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through May 2, 2021. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit 42ndStreetMoon.org. Among his many credits, Graae has appeared on Broadway numerous times, toured extensively as The Wizard in Wicked, performed with major symphonies across the country, recorded dozens of musical theater albums and has enjoyed a long association with 42nd Street Moon. He is known for the improbable combination of his antic, go-for-broke comedic style and the impeccable musicianship of his soaring tenor. He is the type of performer who can make you bust a gut one moment, and then melt your heart the next.   BroadwayWorld caught up with Graae last week from his home base in LA soon after he had completed filming Perfect Hermany. We talked about his long association with both Herman and 42nd Street Moon, his favorite Herman songs, a couple of key roles that somehow got away from him and a few he still hopes to have a go at. Graae is always a blast to talk to. It seems the guy just is incapable of not being funny, but he is also thoughtful and kind, and sort of a walking treasure trove of theatrical lore. The following conversation has been condensed and edited for clarity.
