03 Jan 2013
The original production of the Tony Award-nominated Best Musical Mame, which features a classic score by Jerry Herman, closed Jan. 3, 1970. Playbill.com has put together a musical tribute, including performances from the 1966 musical, 1974 film, concert appearances and more.
The original Broadway production of Mame starred Tony Award winner Angela Lansbury in the title role; the stage and screen star reprised her performance for the 1983 Broadway revival. The musical was also recently seen at Connecticut's Goodspeed Opera House.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
