I Remember Mama, according to press notes, "exposes the everyday tragedies and triumphs of one Norwegian immigrant family, determined to thrive, in San Francisco at the turn of the last century. Redefining family, time, and memory, Transport Group's production features a cast of ten veteran actresses who play all 23 roles. This reinterpretation of Van Druten's simple and honest story reveals how even the smallest and seemingly insignificant experiences of family life can silently accumulate and take our breath away."
The production also features sets by Dane Laffrey, lighting by R. Lee Kennedy, costumes by Kathryn Rohe and properties by Alicia Bullen.
The original production of I Remember Mama opened at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre Oct. 19, 1944, and ran for 713 performances. The cast featured Mady Christians, Oscar Homolka, Joan Tetzel and Marlon Brando, making his Broadway debut as Nels.
