Mame - 1968 - US Tour

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
