“MAME is a celebration of life – living with joy and optimism, no matter your situation,” said Executive Artistic Director Daniel Thomas. “It’s also about found family: not always the people you’re closely related to, but the people who will always be with you, thick or thin. They share life’s joys and sorrows and adventures with you, and they’ll always be there for you. And who else but the great Jerry Herman could write a score that so brilliantly shares that message? You’ll leave the theatre singing and smiling!”
Jerry Herman’s optimistic score includes the rousing title number, plus “We Need a Little Christmas,” “Bosom Buddies,” and “Open a New Window.”
MAME runs approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes (includes an intermission.
