The celebrated comedy of everybody's favorite madcap aunt and her orphaned nephew that she teaches to live, live, live -- and conquers life and love from New York to the deep south!
This fabulously successful hit hardly needs introduction. Besides being the source for one of America's most popular musicals, AUNTIE MAME set a standard for Broadway comedy that's been sought after ever since. "Auntie Mame was a handsome, sparkling, scatterbrained and warm-hearted lady who brightened the American landscape from 1928 to the immediate past by her whimsical gaiety, her slightly madcap adventures and her devotion to her young nephew, who grew up to be Patrick Dennis. Through fortunes that rose and fell and a pleasant but brief marriage to a likable Southerner, who had the bad luck to tumble down from the Matterhorn, Auntie Mame's chief concern was that nephew, whom she raised . . .[the play's] central figure is a woman of spirit, innate kindness and undefeatable courage . . ."--NY Post.
