Mame is the musical story of the indestructible, irrepressible Auntie Mame, who is the center of a highly exclusive clique of playwrights, artists and journalists, as well as the beautiful people of New York society in 1928. This musical follows Mame and her orphaned nephew Patrick through years of fantastic and funny adventures.
Mame is a musicalization of the 1956 Patrick Dennis play Auntie Mame, which was brought to life by composer and lyricist Jerry Herman, along with the playwrights Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. With more than 1,500 performances, Mame is one of the longest running musicals in Broadway history.
