Lyric Stage presents Jerry Herman’s Mame in concert
“Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!” That’s the motto of Mame Dennis, one of musical theater’s all-time greatest heroines, in Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s brassy, tuneful, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis’s bestseller, Auntie Mame. With spirit, humor, class, and wit, Mame teaches her young nephew Patrick to savor every moment of life. Jerry Herman’s celebrated score includes the rousing title number, plus “Open a New Window,” “If He Walked into My Life,” “We Need a Little Christmas,” “Bosom Buddies,” and “That’s How Young I Feel.”
Theatre World Award winner and Lyric Stage favorite Julie Johnson returns to Lyric Stage to play Mame Dennis. The supporting cast includes Daron Cockerell as Agnes Gooch, Trevor Martin as Patrick Dennis, Vahn Phollurxa as Ito, Amy Mills as Vera Charles and Deborah Brown as Mother Burnside.
