To celebrate Jerry Herman’s birthday, here is a bit of Mack and Mabel rehearsal footage and the tv commercial.

Mack and Mabel opened at the Majestic Theatre on Broadway on October 6, 1974, and closed on November 30, 1974 after 66 performances. The show featured a book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. The plot involved the tumultuous romantic relationship between Hollywood director Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand. The original 1974 Broadway production was produced by David Merrick and starred Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters along with Lisa Kirk and James Mitchell. Scenic design was by Robin Wagner, costume design by Patricia Zipprodt, and lighting design by Tharon Musser. Choreography was by Gower Champion. The show was nominated for several Tony Awards and unfortunately did not win any. However, the musical has become a favorite of musical lovers and continues to grow in popularity.

Happy Birthday Jerry Herman!! Gerald Sheldon Herman (July 10, 1931 – December 26, 2019) was an American composer and lyricist.

After graduation from the University of Miami, Herman moved to New York City, where he produced the Off-Broadway revue I Feel Wonderful, which was made up of material he had written at the University. It opened at the Theatre de Lys in Greenwich Village on October 18, 1954, and ran for 48 performances. He then collected enough original material to put together an Off-Broadway revue called Parade in 1960. In 1960, Herman made his Broadway debut with the revue From A to Z, which showcased newcomers of the time. His first full Broadway musical was Milk and Honey and debuted in 1961 and ran for 543 performances. In 1964, producer David Merrick united Herman with musical actress Carol Channing and librettist Michael Stewart for a project that was to become one of his more successful, Hello, Dolly! which swept the Tonys that year and ran for 2,844 performances and thus began the iconic Broadway musicals by Herman which graced the stage! These shows include Mame (1966), Dear World (1969), Mack & Mabel (1974), The Grand Tour (1979), La Cage aux Folles (1983), and Jerry’s Girls (1985). Today, I will be highlighting a few of these amazing works, but to check out more clips and photos, check out #vintagebroadway19spotlightweek or the highlights “Jerry Herman” on my page. #jerryherman #mame #lacageauxfolles #hellodolly #mackandmabel #dearworld #jerrysgirls #broadway #broadwaymusical #broadwaymusicals #bway

Celebrating the birthday of Broadway composer and lyricist, Jerry Herman! (1931-2019).

Wherever He Ain’t from the play Mack and Mabel.

This was the most terrifying thing i had to do while in school, but i did it because, “Fear Does Not Serve You!” @matthewlillard @vancouverfilmschool #mackandmabel

Yesterday I got the absolute pleasure of singing songs from the beautiful #mackandmabel score.



It was a bit thrown together last minute hence the iPad but I’m so grateful to be able to sing a couple of songs with an amazing live band @rwcmd #singer #actor #musicaltheatre #jerryhermam

We are so excited to announce our Musical Theatre shows for next year!

Our Performance in Musical Theatre students will be performing in Betty Blue Eyes, Mack and Mabel, Sister Act, Bare: A Pop Opera and Sweeny Todd.

Pt.3
Mack & Mabel raises the time old conflict of trying to add music to serious & heavy topics.



Similar bells are resonant also with Herman's The Grand Tour, which would follow Mack & Mabel chronologically in what was viewed as his 3rd successive Broadway failure. Here too, there was a dichotomy between content & form – with the severe story to do with antisemitism & the Holocaust contrasting with the innately uplifting DNA of a Herman score.

It also speaks to the news circulating on Tuesday, with talk of an opera relating to the Harvey Weinstein trials, and the instant pushback to the musicalisation of such a topic. Rather than characterising Weinstein however, the piece would seek to create a libretto out of verbatim court testimonial excerpts to amplify female voices & stories – a technique demonstrated with sensitivity on previous projects by the writer, Conor Mitchell.

Mack & Mabel did too at times also demonstrate an ability to effectively use the contrasts between its content & form to its advantage.

On the surface, “Tap Your Troubles Away” is ostensibly a light, upbeat tap number. In context, it's a discordantly jovial tune over the top of a montage of Mabel's descent into drug use, violence & murder trials, staged as such to emphasise the darkness of the unfolding reality. Herman is often summarised as simplistic, or not as intellectual as some other composers, like Sondheim. But that juxtaposition is as clever & impactful as many moments of the duo most famous for their cynicism & irony, Kander & Ebb, at least.

It's Aurora singing about Hollywood glamour in an Argentinian prison in Kiss of the Spider Woman. It's The Manson Trio in Pippin with bright smiles & vaudevillian jazz hands exposing the surrounding charade of battle. Or even beyond the theatre, it's “Isn't it Romantic” being played as the camera travels towards Marlene Dietrich over the ravages of a post-war Berlin in Billy Wilder’s “A Foreign Affair”.

The juxtaposition & interweaving of difficult subject matter with evocative music has been long shown to be capable of & indeed suitable to dealing with complicated themes. With a caveat – as long as it’s handled well & with nuance.

Pt.2
Bernadette with Jerry Herman, Robert Preston & Michael Stewart.

Jerry Herman himself apparently said of Mack & Mabel that he thought the show was “the best it ever was” on the opening night in LA.

In more reflections, Jack Viertel (the show’s artistic director last year at Encores!) in speaking of the original show by the time it reached its closing night in New York, called it “so over the top & frightening to listen to”.

As usual, the problems came back to the contrasts between the show’s dark story with Herman’s effusive score.

Jerry did in fact try to revise the book not long after it closed. He went to new librettists in addition to the show’s original book writer, Michael Stewart, to try & devise alterations to help the tale leading to drugs, demise & death to fit more comfortably around his score.

But he deemed it ultimately too fresh a task, and instead retreated from theatre for a while & headed back to LA.

It was in 1995 in the West End production of the show that saw the development of some notable changes in attempts at ‘fixing’ some of its problems.

Francine Pascal, Michael Stewart's sister, stepped in to help. She aided additional research for the ultimate desired aim of making Mack “more likeable & able to love”, and helping Mabel “to become a woman”.

To this end, a titular song was added, to the melody of Look What Happened to Mabel, called “Mack & Mabel”. As a duet, this gave the pair the novel opportunity to sing together for once, to the desired intention of emphasising their bond & shared relationship.

Jumping forwards in time then, Francine’s name is again a notable one to consider.

Attempts had long been made at trying to obtain the rights to do the show at Encores!. But, living in LA & having never seen an Encores! production to be familiar with the concept, Jerry had been reluctant to grant permission. The inclusion of 2 songs from Mack & Mabel in “Hey Look Me Over” a few years before had helped start to get the wheels turning, and it was Francine who called Jerry to say, “We should let them do it”.

Ultimately, he did. And lo and behold, Mack & Mabel, with still even newer changes, was finally back in New York.

Given the above track from earlier pre-Broadway tryouts at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion in LA recently being uploaded to YouTube, another moment on Mack & Mabel.



The show was very much still not fully fixed at this stage in LA, and featured some notable differences – like with different songs, lyrics, and melody disparities.

The latter two you can hear above, with alternative lyrics & some upwards inflections in the verses in contrast with the more familiar version in the show's 'final' form.

I'd recommend Ep. 64 of @thefabulousinvalid 's podcast, ‘Mack & Mabel: City Center Encores!’, for a more in depth look at some of the details behind the show, some of its variations as it was attempted to 'fix' it at various stages, and why it took so long to get it seen again at Encores!

I’ve talked about Torvill & Dean before in what the infamous skating duo did for reviving the show’s popularity by their using the overture for their gold medal winning performance at the 1982 World Championships.

This widescale television broadcast of the music following a 1981 regional production in England (featuring Imelda Staunton as Mabel) did indeed lead to a surge in public consciousness for the show – particularly in the UK. Indeed, it was in the UK that Mack & Mabel was kept alive in a sense over a period of decades after it disappeared after it’s fleeting 66 performances on Broadway in 1974.

A subsequent concert followed in 1988 in London, put together in a similar in format to the all-star Sweet Charity concert seen at Lincoln Centre in 1998, with multiple stars sharing the roles of the main characters. Performers included George Hearn, Tommy Tune & Denis Quilley as Mack; and Paige O’Hara, Frances Ruffelle & Debbie Shapiro as Mabel. The live recording was released as an album.

A full West End production was mounted a few years later in 1995, and at least 6 notable productions have been staged in the UK over the 3 subsequent decades.

It’s quite a notable geographical disparity to consider. The show concerning American movie making seemingly didn’t appear again in a notable production in the US until 2013, in LA. And not at all in NYC for nearly 5 decades.

More tomorrow

There’s something extra special about a composer singing their own song🥰

Gower Champion was an actor,dancer, choreographer and director. In his early years he toured night clubs as a part of a dance duo. Later he worked on Broadway as a dancer and choreographer before the Second World War. After the war he met his future wife and long time dance partner Marjorie Belcher.

Later he would direct and/or choreograph many memorable broadway shows Including the original productions of Bye Bye Birdie, Hello Dolly, Carnival, I Do! I Do!, Sugar, Mack and Mabel and his final work 42nd street in 1980.
Gower passed in 1980 on the opening night of 42nd Street unbeknownst to the cast and crew until the curtain closed and producer David Merrick announced to the cast, crew and audience of the directors passing.

Happy Birthday to my biggest inspiration, my all-time favorite actor and one heckuva human being, Mr.

Robert Preston. ❤️ #robertpreston #themusicman #sob #victorvictoria #thelaststarfighter #thesundowners #beaugeste #legend #mackandmabel #benfranklininparis #thelioninwinter #classicmovies #academyawardnominee #tonyawardwinner #happybirthday #inspiration

"76 TROMBONES": On this day in 1918, Robert Preston - star of THE MUSIC MAN - was born.

A popular actor in Hollywood but never a top star, Bette Davis considered Preston "the most under rated actor" in movies.
.
But in 1957 he found the role of a lifetime in Broadway smash hit THE MUSIC MAN. Preston reprised his role for the 1962 movie version, even though studio bosses first approached Cary Grant, who apparently said "Not only will I not do it, but if Robert Preston doesn't play the role I won't even go and see it!" (However, this apocryphal story has also been attributed to Grant in praise of Rex Harrison when Grant was approached to play the role of Henry Higgins in the film of MY FAIR LADY).
.
Preston continued to appear in Broadway musicals including I DO! I DO! and MACK AND MABEL, achieving a last hurrah in movies just a few years prior to his death with an Oscar Nominated turn in VICTOR/VICTORIA (1981)

Spotlight Week on Jerry Herman: Continuing today’s discussions on Mack and Mabel, Robert Preston’s performance in Mack and Mabel also remains a favorite of fans as well.

One of his iconic songs from the show is “I Won’t Send Roses”. In the show, Mabel has become attracted to Mack, but he is reluctant as he has no time for romance. Here is Brian Stokes Mitchell singing this number from the musical. He would make a fantastic Mack in a revival! I DO NOT OWN THIS VIDEO.

I saw that today is #TeacherAppreciationDay. I’ve been thinking so much these days about my time studying voice with the incredible Steve Sweetland.

He rehabilitated my voice when I first moved to NYC in 2005 after years of abuse from smoking and misuse and struggling with a vocal cyst. While I studied theatre in college, I did mostly plays so the expanse of musical theatre hadn’t been explored much. He really navigated me through the genre which instilled a curiosity and reverence that has lasted ever since. Steve educated me in how to execute technique safely and taught me how to build strength, stamina, flexibility, and diversity within my range. He also infused the sensibility of faith within vocality. Believing in successful execution before you ever utter a note. Intentionality coupled with confidence.

As a tribute to him, I opened my old book and found this gem which I haven’t sung in about 10 years. A little rough around the edges with some notes and lyric order, but I thought I’d share it anyway. So much of what Steve taught me has been a benchmark for my own work as a voice teacher. My heart bursts with gratitude. Thank you for saving, preserving, and transforming my instrument and inspiring me to become a teacher. Love you, Steve!

"(Jason Graae and Jerry Herman) having been friends for many years, Graae has personal anecdotes and reminiscences that he shares with the camera, and he does so with carefully orchestrated sincerity that is capped off by a Jason Graae punchline, the sort for which he is famous.

We’re going to throw it back to the wayyyy old school...1958 to be exact.

You sure got some trouble if you recognize this amazing golden age talent, Mr. Robert Preston!

Show: The Music Man
Song: “Ya Got Trouble”

Robert Preston Meservey (June 8, 1918 – March 21, 1987) was an American stage and film actor and singer of Broadway and cinema, best known and remembered for his collaboration with composer Meredith Willson and originating the role of Professor Harold Hill in the 1957 musical The Music Man and the 1962 film adaptation; the film earned him his first of two Golden Globe Award nominations. Preston collaborated twice with filmmaker Blake Edwards, first in S.O.B. (1981) and again in Victor/Victoria (1982). For portraying Carroll "Toddy" Todd in the latter, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor at the 55th Academy Awards. For his performances in The Music Man and I Do! I Do! (1967) he won two Tony Awards® for Best Actor, and was nominated again in 1975 for his portrayal of Mack Sennett in Mack & Mabel.

Enjoy!

What’s your favorite broadway memory of Robert Preston?!

This is the perfect rainy Sunday for some of the darker musicals in our Broadway canon!

While not the first, certainly (IMO) the most memorable Sweeney Todd is Mr. George Hearn!

Show: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Song: “Epiphany”

George Hearn (born June 18, 1934) is an American actor and singer, primarily in Broadway musical theatre. On March 4, 1980 he replaced Len Cariou in the title role of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd opposite Dorothy Loudon. Later in 1980 Hearn and the show's original star, Angela Lansbury, headed the show's touring company, then reprised their roles for a Showtime production of the musical, which won him an Emmy Award for his portrayal. In 1983 Hearn created the role of Albin in the original Broadway production of La Cage aux Folles written by Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman. Hearn originated the gay anthem "I Am What I Am". He won the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics' Circle Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of Albin. Hearn also appeared in the West End production (which opened in May 1986). He won a second Tony award for his role as Max Von Mayerling in the original Broadway production of Sunset Boulevard, and was nominated again for playing Otto Frank in the 2000 revival of The Diary of Anne Frank. His other credits include Wicked, The Visit, Follies, Mack and Mabel, Scandalous and Meet Me In St. Louis!

His voice is incredible and it would incredibly silly not to know everything about this talented leading man! Enjoy!

One of the classic “Muppet Show” episodes and to a Jerry Herman tune no less.

Gilda got glue stuck on her, and the Shticklach ( as Howard Stern would call it,) is on cue and irresistible. Gilda started in musical comedy, and together with the Muppets, you’ve got one hell of a mood lifter. Celebrate her. @broadway1011 @hashtag_b_b

Morning luvvies,

Time for another #throwback looking back on the shows CTC have staged over the past 51 years.



Following a successful year with Fiddler on the Roof and The Sound of Music, CTC returned in 1985 with a production of Jerry Herman's Mack & Mabel.

Lee Costelow, Sally Jones, Julie Easter and Howard Kirk took leading roles and the show marked Keith Baileys debut as conductor for the orchestra.

Mack & Mabel depicts the days of the silent film era "when movies were movies". Based on the real life story of the director, Mack Sennett, and his star and lover, Mabel Normand, the show charts the glory days of Keystone Studios from 1911, when he discovered Mabel Normand, through his creation of Sennett's Bathing Beauties and the Keystone Cops, to Mabel's death from tuberculosis in 1930.

The original 1974 Broadway production produced by David Merrick starred Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters. The musical opened at the Majestic Theatre on Broadway on the 6th October, 1974, and closed on the 30th November, 1974 after only 8 weeks (66 performances and 6 previews).

Mack & Mabel received eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, but did not win any. There was no nomination for Jerry Herman's fantastic score.

Mack & Mabel was first produced in England in 1981 at the Nottingham Playhouse. The production starred Denis Quilley as Mack and Imelda Staunton as Mabel; it had a successful run but failed to transfer to the West End.

Soon afterward, British ice-skating team Torvill and Dean, who were based in Nottingham, searched the music library at the local radio station for suitable material for their routines and discovered a recording of the original cast album. When they won the gold medal for ice dance in the World Figure Skating Championships in 1982, they performed to the Mack & Mabel overture.

CTC have gone on to perform Mack & Mabel another two times, but more about those productions in weeks to come. Were any of our followers in the cast or audience of Mack & Mabelcin 1985? We'd love to hear your memories of this production!

What can I say about the muse of the great Stephen Sondheim, @bernadette_peters_ ?!

Bernadette Peters (born February 28, 1948) is an American actress, singer, and children's book author. Over a career spanning five decades, she has starred in musical theatre, television and film, performed in solo concerts and released recordings. She is a critically acclaimed Broadway performer, having received seven nominations for Tony Awards, winning two (plus an honorary award), and nine nominations for Drama Desk Awards, winning three. Four of the Broadway cast albums on which she has starred have won Grammy Awards.

My first musical theatre crush was her Lily St. Regis in the OG Annie film. My first time crying to a soundtrack was her Children Will Listen. She is the alpha and omega for many peoples MT journey. Her Desiree was superb, her Dot is iconic, her Annie was hilarious and her Sally was breathtaking. She is all things MT! She’s worked since the 1970s to give the world a reason to smile and she’s still giving us reason to daily! Even if you don’t like her voice, her impact on our community is undeniable!

Enjoy!

What’s your favorite broadway memory of Bernadette Peters?!

Mack and Mabel 🎥 Song Suggestions! 🎶 ⁠

🤔 Why It Matters:

Mack and Mabel starred Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters. It's based on the true (love) story of Mack Sennett (creator of the Keystone Cops films) and Mabel Normand (who became a film star, thanks to Sennett). Audiences were uncomfortable with the noticeable age difference between Preston and Peters and its Broadway production was not a success.⁠ But the score is excellent! 🎭⁠

🚫 Songs To Avoid: None! Songs from this joyous score are rarely done so pick anything and you're golden! 🤩⁠

🏆 Competitive Choices: Look What Happened To Mabel (it has a GREAT build!), Wherever He Ain't (allows you to express ALL the colours of rage!) and Time Heals Everything (classic, moving ballad). 💕⁠

➕ If you teach a Musical Theatre Class, look at Movies Were Movies - it's got SO much potential for fun staging and fun solo lines for your students! ⁠😍⁠

👉 Share this with your favourite voice teacher or singer 🎭 ⁠

שחקנית בדיוקן🎨


והיום, לכבוד יום האישה הבינלאומי, החלטנו להקדיש את הפינה לאחת מהשחקניות האהובות, המשפיעות והמוכרות ביותר בברודוויי, שחגגה שבעים ושלוש שנים לאחרונה-ברנדט פיטרס!


פיטרס כמעט נולדה על הבמה, ומגיל צעיר השתתפה בהצגות בברודוויי ובתוכניות טלוויזיה. מאז ועד היום היא השתתפה בעשרות הצגות ומחזות זמר בברודוויי ובניהם: יום ראשון בפארק עם ג'ורג', מק ומייבל, ג'יפסי, בעיר, הלו דולי, מוזיקת לילה זעירה וכמובן אל תוך היער, שיר וריקוד ואנני אשת לפידות, שעל השניים האחרונים זכתה בטוני מתוך ששת המועמדויות שלה. בנוסף השתתפה בסרטים רבים וזכתה בפרס גלובוס הזהב ובכוכב בשדרת הכוכבים בהוליווד. בין הסרטים שהשתתפה בהם תוכלו למצוא את האדפטציות של אנני וסינדרלה. חוץ מזה היא הוציאה מספר אלבומים ויצאה לקונצרטים רבים, הקימה ארגוני צדקה שונים ובהם "ברודוויי בארקס" שמקדם אימוץ של כלבים ממכלאות, וגם כתבה כמה ספרי ילדים.


ברנדט הביאה משהו חדש לברודוויי; הקול הגדול שלה, עם כל הצדדים שלו, כבש את ליבם של מלחיני ברודוויי, ובראשם סטיבן סונדהיים, שאמר פעם שכשהוא מלחין שיר לאישה, הוא שומע את הקול של ברנדט. המשחק שלה ורמת ההכנסות וההבנה שלה לתוך דמויות שונות ומנוגדות לחלוטין היא דבר שאין שני לו, ועד היום שחקנים רבים שואפים ממנה השראה רבה.
השיר שצירפנו לקוח מאחד מחזות הזמר הפחות מוכרים של סונדהיים, "מתגלגלים", שבו ברנדט עושה עיבוד חדש ויפהפה לשיר. ההופעה הזו באופן ספציפי שוברת את הלב כי הקונצרט התקיים חמש שנים לאחר שבעלה, מייקל וויטנברג, נהרג בהתרסקות מטוס.
מה השיר האהוב עליכם שברנדט שרה?



שיר: not a day goes by
אירוע: קונצרט יום ההולדת ה-80 לסונדהיים

Lisa Kirk (born February 25, 1925; and here with Ricardo Montalbán) was a celebrated actress and comedienne who was well noted for her rich husky alto singing voice.

In 1962, she dubbed for Rosalind Russell as Mama Rose in "Gypsy", and was said to have dubbed Lucille Ball’s singing voice in "Mame" (1974), though Lucy denied it because, “she’s (Lisa) not dubbing my voice because no one can”.

Born in Charleroi, Pennsylvania, she was raised in nearby Roscoe (her family home was later converted into a hotel). She started out as a law student in Pittsburgh but bowed out to join the chorus line at the Versailles nightclub, New York instead. When that stint finished, she trained at the Herbert Berghof acting school and made her Broadway debut in "Allegro" by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II which opened in 1947 to mixed reviews. She fared better the following year with "Kiss Me Kate" in which she played Lois Lane/Bianca.

By the 1950s, she was firmly established on television, as Katherina in the "Studio One in Hollywood" adaptation of "The Taming of the Shrew" (1950), as well as the anthology series "Kraft Theatre", "General Electric Theater" (she played Jackie Hilton in "From the Top" in 1955) and the TV-movie "The Man in the Moon" (1960) co-written by Mel Brooks and starring Andy Williams and Cloris Leachman. She also featured on a 1967 episode of "Bewitched" and on "The Ed Sullivan Show", "The Dean Martin Show" and others.

Lisa sporadically returned to Broadway over the years, including "Here’s Love" (1963) with Janis Paige; as an older actress who becomes a hoofer in "Mack and Mabel" in 1974; and the 1984 revival of Noël Coward’s "Design for Living", directed by George C. Scott, with Jill Clayburgh.

Lisa remained a fix on the cabaret and night club circuit (she was a regular at the Plaza in New York) until she was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1989 (she never smoked). She died a year later in November 1990, aged 65. Her husband was the sketch artist and songwriter Robert Wells.

A year ago we had just wrapped up #MackAndMabel at @nycitycenter.

If only I had know what was to come I would have taken so many more pictures and soaked everything in more.

👁️📖⬇️ A slightly tangential venture today.

As with last time, I seem wont to pivot to Lisa Kirk after bringing up Mack & Mabel. Here, firstly, we have Lisa Kirk (left) with Bernadette and Robert Preston from Jerry Herman’s doomed & beloved show.

Which brings me to a link courtesy of some perusing of the Masterworks Broadway photo archives done of late (a great source of old photos from productions & recordings gone by if you’ve not visited before).
A moment in this case for the happenstance of some rather nice discovered images featuring individuals that one can link to Bernadette’s own performance career.

Secondly then, in aid of Lisa Kirk, we have Lisa and Harold Lang in 1949 in the original Broadway production of Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate. Lisa as the original Lois Lane/Bianca gave what was considered a brilliant performance, including a what's thought of by some as an “unsurpassed” rendition of the tormented ‘Why Can’t You Behave?”

Thirdly & fourthly, Joel Grey – with whom Bernadette starred next to in George M! in 1968 and remains good friends with to this day – alongside Ann Reinking, in the original Broadway production of Goodtime Charley in 1975. This show happened to feature in the same Tony Awards cycle as Mack & Mabel in 1975. Goodtime Charley was nominated for 7 awards, Mack & Mabel for 8. Neither took home even one.

And fifthly, Betty Comden and Adolph Green in 1961 at the studio cast recording for On the Town. Nearly twenty years after the show opened on Broadway, the definitive cast recording was finally made. That the 1944 original had never been properly recorded in full until now is a note of quite considerable importance, considering especially how far the 1949 film score deviates from the primary show. In addition to having written the book and lyrics, Comden and Green here reprised both their roles as initial cast members Claire and Ozzie respectively on this recording. On the Town was Bernadette’s first major, adult Broadway show and indeed her first tony nominated role. Though no full recording of the 1971 revival was made either for wide release.

Mack & Mabel at The Majestic Theatre in 1974.

Today marks the one year anniversary that Mack & Mabel opened in its brief performance run at Encores!

at New York City centre, from 19-23 February 2020. Yep. A whole year.

Also serendipitous timing, the full soundboard audio of the original show has just recently been uploaded to youtube, for those interested in hearing something that vaguely resembles 'context' – alongside Herman's marvellous score as usual.

I wish I could’ve seen Bernadette Peters in On The Town😢

#fiberuarychallenge2021 Day 15 Prompt: Mug (shot)

I’ve been going to @nycitycenter Encores! for 22 years. Truly one of the highlights of our annual theater experiences. When we knew we’d be leaving NYC we bought a mug from that season. We’ve kept our subscription and usually are able to make it back for 2 of the three shows each year and add a mug to the group. In 2020 only one show got put on, Mack and Mabel, and it was among the final things I saw live on my last trip to NYC before lockdown. This is the longest I’ve been away from NYC in over 30 years. Can’t wait to get back and to see theater in-person again.

Back to the beginning when we worked with the amazing @harrolde and @theperformingartsdepot creating Tap Your Troubles Away from Mack & Mabel #musicaltheatre #jerryherman #tapdance #orchestra #mackandmabel #broadwaymusical #westendtheatre #whatsonstage #lockdownmusic

If you know me, you know that I cry at the drop of a hat, especially during a musical.


The other day, I was watching my favourite performance of Wheels Of A Dream from Ragtime, and started to think:

What are my favourite tear-jerker songs in musicals?

And so, I decided to share a top ten, in no particular order at the link in my bio✨

Which musical theatre tunes make YOU cry?

Time Heals Everything - Mack and Mabel

Ringing in the new year hungover and overacting 🎉


#mackandmabel #bernadettepeters #musicaltheatre #broadway #goldenage #cover #singing #vocals

With a Broadway shut down for most of the year, there still were some memorable moments to recognize.

Patti LuPone's basement made its debut on the @rosie Rosie O'Donnell Reunion. 

APRIL: Here’s to the performance that lifted everyone’s spirits. #MerylStreep , @audramcdonald , and #ChristineBaranski sang “The Ladies Who Lunch” from Company in their bathrobes with booze.

  @michaelurielikesit wowed the internet with his solo performance in Buyer & Cellar.

  @brianstokesm shared hope by singing from his apartment window. 

MAY: The @hellodollybway cast and all four recent Dollys ( @bettemidler , Bernadette, @blbuckley and @Caroleecarmello reunited for an epic opening number that was part of a Mother’s Day special.

JUNE:  Activism was at the forefront of some of the most memorable and monumental moments of June.

There might not have been a Tony Awards this June, instead, the #AntonyoAwards took its place.

JULY: #BernadettePeters brought  @broadwaybarks online 

AUGUST: #BroadwayBares celebrated 29 years of shows with a digital tribute.

“ONE OF MY OLD FAVOURITE SONGS FROM WAY BACK WHEN”:

Remembering Jerry Herman, the Broadway composer who passed away one year ago today.
.
Herman was a Tony winner for HELLO, DOLLY! and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, although he cited MAME as his personal favourite show: “every line of dialogue, every costume, every orchestration, and every song is right.”
.
Though Mr. Herman was known as one of the greatest piano players in the theatre, he technically did not read music. He could write out a melody line with chords (a “lead sheet”) but never transcribed his piano accompaniment. He wrote five of the songs for HELLO, DOLLY! in a single weekend - “Call On Dolly”, “I Put My Hand In”, “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Dancing” and a song for Irene Molloy. With the exception of the latter (replaced afterwards by “Ribbons Down My Back”) every song appeared in the show exactly as written that weekend.
.
Herman’s only score not to be preserved on a cast album was his 1961 Off-Broadway musical MADAME APHRODITE, which ran for a mere 13 performances. The show, about a woman who creates a phony beauty cream to disfigure her vain enemies, has never been performed since.
.
Yet we can be sure that the songs of Jerry Herman will “never go away again”!

We have a mutating virus. We have a government petrifying us and taking advantage of us, at the same time as taking our liberties from us through the back door.

We are now in Tier 4, Matt Hancock on Marr today, implied we may well be in this Tier until we are vaccinated. How fucking long could we remain in Tier 4 then ??? We do all realise in Tier 4 we have no legal rights to protest? Where is the risk assessment regarding being locked in compared to the risks involved in not being locked in ? Give us the figures and facts please. We have to think re Brexit why this is happening now. Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine is a must Christmas read !
“ As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.” Noam Chomsky. #wakeupandrealisewhatshappening #wakeupeverybody #theyarecontrollingus #disobedience #noncompliance #ourlibertiesarebeingtakenforareason #naomiklein #shockdoctrine #bernadettepeters #jerryherman #mackandmabel

Did this really happen in the same 2020 as the rest of the garbage that happened in 2020? Wow.

Can’t believe we got this in right under the wire. Thank goodness, it was such a dream.
I miss this all so so much.
We can get back to it but in the meantime we need relief and help from Congress for this devastated industry. Visit Save Our Stages link in my bio.

Swipe for some silent film acting, good sitzprobe porn, the night they told @marcellathegreat she was on, and the exact moment my soul left my body - it hasn’t returned since. Glad to have these memories.

JERRY’S GIRLS, which opened on Broadway on this day in 1985. It played the St. James Theatre for 141 performances. (Photo: Martha Swope).
.
The show, which started as a nightclub act, was a musical revue based on the songs of composer/lyricist Jerry Herman. Before landing on Broadway, the revue was expanded into a full production that toured (with Carol Channing).
.
Songs featured were from musicals such as “Hello, Dolly!,” “Mack and Mabel,” “Mame,” “Milk and Honey,” “La Cage aux Folles,” “ A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine,” and “ Dear World.”
.
Director Larry Alford conceived the piece with Herman, and helmed the Broadway production. Wayne Cilento did the choreography.
.
Chita Rivera received the sole Tony nomination as Best Actress in a Musical.

Just in time for the big snow day. Picked up this yarn from @liyarnandfarm and it’s by far my favorite to work with.

I love the gold that’s weaved into it with such detail. Can’t wait for the girls to test it out in the snow ❄️

Good morning everyone! I can’t believe it, but for the first time I’m featuring the absolute QUEEN that is Jane Krakowski!

Back in the year 2000 she co-starred as Mabel in the LA Reprise! production of the beloved flop musical, Mack and Mabel. For those who don’t know, at the time LA Reprise! was very much the Los Angles version of New York City Center Encores. Many people have tried to “fix” the show over the years, but no one has really been successful. Jane starred opposite the amazing Douglas Sills, and it’s worth nothing that he has since revisited the role twice! Once for the revue “Hey Look Me Over” at Encores! and once for yet another new production at Encores! entirely, earlier this year! Anyway, back to Jane! Her take on this song is just downright delightful. She has a certain joyous nature she brings to the stage that’s just infectious. I hope you all enjoy this truly rare moment from Mack and Mabel!

Hello luvvies, it's time for another CTC Alumni!


Over the past 50 years, CTC has seen many incredibly talented performers appear in our shows! So to continue with our 50 year celebration we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane and remember some of our fantastic alumni.

Our next CTC Alumni member is Carl.

Carl's first ever CTC production was as choreographer for our 1993 production of Little Shop of Horrors. In fact this was Carl's first ever choreographer role for a musical and he has since gone one to choreograph many, many brilliant shows for local societies.

Carl says his favourite CTC show was La Cage Aux Folles with Danny La Rue at the Stardust cabaret theatre. Carl says 'I did this show first at Loughborough Town Hall, where we even performed a Midnight Matinee. Then we got told that we were doing it again with Danny, the whole run was simply amazing, I loved working along side him and listening to all his star studied stories in the cocktail bar after the shows.'

In terms of roles, Carl says 'I have never had a big role in a CTC show, but the one part I loved doing was playing Frank in Mack & Mable in 2004 at Stanford Hall with Lee as Mack and Lucy as Mabel.'

Carl says his most treasured CTC memory would be 'doing Copacabana in 2003 with dear Ruth’s choreography and the dance she set for me and Lucy (the Bolero) in the night club scene - I loved it 💞' #ctc50 #CTCFIFTY #CTCFAMILY #ctcpresents #vintagectc #CTCAlumni

sat there, smiled and listened to them with my knee bouncing as I was desperately trying to hold it together until (as Jerry Herman wrote,) "next Tuesday, Thursday, April, August, autumn, winter, NEXT YEAR?!?!" 😱😩 Patience IS a virtue, and after four years, time does NOT heal everything, especially my nerves.

Mac and Mabel
Love it!! I know I like a show when it seems short and I’m excited to read through the synopsis!

I also always love Jerry Herman. Great story and great music. I had a hard time picking my favorite song because they are all so good. But the title song is adorable, I love “Look what happened to Mabel” and “I wanna make the world laugh”

We have been loving Broadwayworld's recent features and playlists on Spotify.

Having already brought you our take on the 'I Want' song, the 11 o'clock number and the Act 1 Finale, we now turn our attention to 'Practically Perfect Act 2 Openers.'

The interval is over and a whole 20 minutes has passed since the end of the first act. How best can a musical lure you back in? With a show-stopping Act 2 opener, of course! Nothing can transport you back into the story quite like a musical number, and musical theatre's best shows are proof of that power.

Inspired by @officialbroadwayworld we've taken a trip down memory lane to some of our favourite CTC Act 2 Opening Numbers.

1) Too Darn Hot (Kiss me Kate)
2) Seasons of Love (Rent)
3) Another Night at Darryl's (The Witches of Eastwick)
4) Murder, Murder (Jekyll and Hyde)
5) Thank God I'm a Country Boy (Priscilla Queen of the Desert)
6) The Chase (Brigadoon)
7) Whipped in to Shape (Legally Blonde)
8) On the Balcony of the Casa Rosada/Don't Cry for me Argentina (Evita)
9) Elegance (Hello, Dolly! )
10) When Mabel Comes in the Room (Mack and Mabel)

What's your favourite Act 2 Opener?

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for...

🎶Sermon on a Showtune🎶


One of our gorgeous headliners, Lara Denning @dame_denning chose “Wherever He Ain’t” from Mack & Mabel as her favourite self help show tune.

I also love the gutsy, girl power vibe of this one! Never fails to pep me up; especially when I hear me Julie @rhiannon.shay singing it! (thanks for letting me borrow your clip for this video Rhe! 🥰)

We have to learn to set our boundaries and spend our energy wisely. I think this song is a practically perfect reminder that we all have the ability to take control of our behaviour and responses to challenges (even when it doesn’t feel easy or possible), put toxic people and things in the bin and, no doubt, you’ll feel much better as a result!

Happy Birthday #AngelaLansbury !! 🎈 @theangelalansbury

I had the pleasure of doing several concerts with @dameangelalansbury - but in this photo I was reminding her of an indelible comment she had made to me years before. You see, she was preparing a Jerry Herman tribute and her costar Barbara Cook sadly had to cancel at the last moment. I was pregnant with twins but still managed to fly to London & get to rehearsals at the #palladiumtheatre #palladiumtheatrelondon ~~ all of that was a dream come true, and a chance to learn how jolly one can be and still do very detailed last minute work (& with Maestro Don Pippin). But the story that still tickles me to this day was when we were finally in full gowns backstage on opening night, the @londonphilharmonicorchestra was playing, and I was in my purple dress (the special light blue I had bought for the occasion already didn’t fit!... in a mere week, my twins had altered my body even more!)... I was warming up on a backstage bench, making sure my flute-like notes were ready for “Mack & Mabel” and other songs (Angela would be mostly narrating). She noticed this tendency to over-prepare & to focus on technical sound, and drive myself a bit batty. She said to me, commanding me gently to listen: “Melissa you sing better than you’ll ever need to.”

She sat down, going further with a long simple, soothing story about not being too worried about anything except TELLING THE STORY. “Let the opera singers worry about all that - the scales, analysis- that is NOT us, you need the voice to be able to *tell that story*, that’s big, but that’s all.”

#ThrowbackThursday Throwing it back to 1989 & our Senior Stage Class with ‘Mack & Mabel’ in our annual show at Manor High School #tbt #mackandmabel #1989 #manorhigh #show #dance #memories

Here's a shoutout to research and Bernadette Peters.

😊 I love to compare different versions of musicals and I have found that my friends at @itsamusicalpod like to do the same. Listen to their podcast, it's awesome!⁣

Did you know that Bernadette Peters was in the 1987 original Broadway production and the 1991 movie? I feel like it would be illegal not to study ALL of Meryl Streep's performances in ANYTHING but there's a lot to learn from Ms Peters as well. 😊⁣
Izzie xo.

I remember back in the day before Covid when I was like "hey Skate Canada 2020 is in Ottawa, that's

driving distance from Pennsylvania, I should go!" What an innocent and optimistic soul I used to be

Today in 1974, Jerry Herman's Mack and Mabel opened on Broadway starring Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters.

🎭

Sadly, it didn't last very long due to a problematic book and (arguably) the age difference between the two leading actors. 😭

But it has a wonderful score! 🎶 Be sure to check out Wherever He Ain't and Time Heals Everything - both on my YouTube Channel 📺 🎹 🎶

🎶 STAGE 4 SUNDAYS 🎶..
Each week a little snippet of a favourite song from the world of the classic musical theatre...

leading towards a bigger project. .
This week: ‘I wont send roses’ from #jerryherman #mackandmabel .

Following our recent post on the 'I Want' song, we thought we'd continue with our inspiration from @officialbroadwayworld and take a look at the 11 o'clock number.



Almost always one of the last songs in a musical (though rarely ever the final song), the 11 o'clock number often functions as a counterpart to the protagonist's 'I Want' song in the show's first act, in which the character comes to a major realisation. The term originated when Broadway shows began at 8:30pm and concluded at (or soon after) 11pm. The 11 o'clock number is often big, show-stopping, and ovation-earning.

As part of our 50th anniversary we thought we'd reminisce about some of our favourite CTC 11 o'clock numbers:

1) Time Heals Everything (Mack & Mabel)
2) Rose's Turn (Gypsy)
3) You Must Love Me (Evita)
4) Memory (Cats)
5) A New Life (Jekyll and Hyde)
6) Legally Blonde - Remix (Legally Blonde)
7) So Long Dearie (Hello, Dolly!)
8) I'm Outta Here (Ghost)
9) What You Own (Rent)
10) Kylie Medley (Priscilla Queen of the Desert)

What's your favourite 11 o'clock number?

Hello luvvies, it's a new week and time for a new feature!


We hope you've enjoyed meeting our members over the past few months?

Over the past 50 years, CTC has seen many incredibly talented performers appear in our shows! So to continue with our 50 year celebration we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane and remember some of our fantastic alumni.

Our first CTC Alumni, and honorary member, is Lee.

Lee first joined CTC in 1976 for our production of Oklahoma, and went on to appear in many, many CTC shows. Over the years Lee played a number of leading roles for CTC including Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd, Julian Marsh in 42nd Street, Edward Lyons in Blood Brothers, Pop in We Will Rock You, Emile de Becque in South Pacific, Adam in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Horace in Hello, Dolly! and Georges in La Cage Aux Folles (the last two he played opposite the late, great Danny La Rue).

Lee says his favourite CTC show is 42nd Street, he says its 'pure Broadway glitz and I got to do my Frankie Vaughan high kicks!'

Lee's favourite CTC role is Mack Sennett in Mack and Mabel. Lee says the show has a 'brilliant score to sing and it was a joy to bring him to life on stage.'

When asked his most treasured CTC memory, Lee says 'I have so many!!! I have loved working with everyone. But I have been privileged to play alongside all my amazing leading ladies.'

🇬🇧“Big Time! This time it's the big time in a short time we can be the cherry on the top of the sundae, the shiny star on top of the tree” ~ Mack & Mabel.

This was my first experience in the USA on stage as part of an ensemble. I loved all the characters in this musical and it was a delight to see their remarkable work and ingenuity. A big shout out to Mrs Hamilton for connecting me its directors. The plot of this play involves the tumultuous romantic relationship between Hollywood director Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand who became one of his biggest stars. In a series of flashbacks, Sennett relates the glory days of Keystone Studios from 1911, when he discovered Normand and cast her in dozens of his early "two-reelers", through his creation of Sennett's Bathing Beauties and the Keystone Cops to Mabel's death. Did you know? The birth of modern screen comedy occurred when Chaplin donned his derby hat, affixed his toothbrush moustache, and stepped into his gigantic shoes for the first time at the Keystone Film Company. ******🇫🇷”Temps fort ! Cette fois, c'est le grand moment en un rien de temps, nous serons la cerise sur le gâteau, l'étoile brillante au sommet du sapin…”~ Mack & Mabel. C'était ma 1ère expérience aux USA sur des planches. J'ai adoré tous les personnages de cette comédie musicale. Ce fut un plaisir énorme de voir leur travail et leur ingéniosité. Un grand merci à Mme Hamilton pour m'avoir mise en contact avec ses metteurs en scène. Cette pièce parle de la relation amoureuse et tumultueuse entre le réalisateur hollywoodien Mack Sennett et Mabel Normand qui est devenue l'une de ses plus grandes stars. Dans une série de flashbacks, Sennett raconte les jours de gloire de Keystone Studios à partir de 1911, quand il a découvert Normand et l'a jetée dans des dizaines de ses premiers "two-reelers", à travers sa création de Sennett's Bathing Beauties et les Keystone Cops jusqu’à la mort de Mabel. Le saviez-vous ? La naissance de la comédie à l'écran moderne a eu lieu lorsque Chaplin a enfilé son chapeau derby, apposé sa “moustache” et est entré dans ses gigantesques chaussures pour la 1ère fois à la Keystone Film Company.

100 Women of Film
1913 - Mabel Normand

Amabel Ethelreid Normand was an American silent-film actress, screenwriter, director, and producer.

She was a popular star and collaborator of Mack Sennett in his Keystone Studios films, and at the height of her career in the late 1910s and early 1920s had her own movie studio and production company.

Onscreen, she appeared in 12 successful films with Charlie Chaplin and 17 with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, sometimes writing and directing (or co-writing/directing) movies featuring Chaplin as her leading man.

Throughout the 1920s, her name was linked with widely publicized scandals, including the 1922 murder of William Desmond Taylor and the 1924 shooting of Courtland S. Dines, who was shot by Normand's chauffeur using her pistol. She was a suspect in the first crime for a short period, but disregarded from the latter. Her film career declined, and she suffered a recurrence of tuberculosis in 1923, which led to a decline in her health, retirement from films, and her death in 1930 at age 37.

In 1974 the Broadway musical “Mack & Mabel” (Michael Stewart and Jerry Herman) fictionalized the romance between Normand and Mack Sennett. Normand was played by Bernadette Peters and Robert Preston portrayed Mack Sennett.

This week @officialbroadwayworld have been running a feature on the 'I Want' song in musicals.



Usually (but not always) one of the first songs in a musical, the 'I Want' song is a quick way to loop in the audience on the motivations of the main character, which often drive his/her actions throughout the rest of the show.

We thought we'd reminisce about some of our favourite CTC 'I want' songs...

1) Make Him Mine (The Witches of Eastwick)
2) One Song Glory (Rent)
3) Some People (Gypsy)
4) Big Time (Mack and Mabel)
5) Say a Little Prayer (Priscilla Queen of the Desert)
6) Holding out for a Hero (Footloose)
7) Somewhere That's Green (Little Shop of Horrors)
8) I Have Confidence (The Sound of Music)
9) Someone to Watch Over Me (Crazy for You)
10) Belle Reprise (Beauty and the Beast)

What's your favourite 'I Want' song?

Meet Rocco – the poodle of the sunshine land of 70s LA.

Perhaps not as immortalised in books as Stella or Kramer, and likely more similar in size to Murphy the cat than Charlie or Rosalie of the moment. But still very much a real part of history nevertheless.

During the TV and film years of the 70s, Bernadette was known to have lived above the Sunset Strip in LA with said miniature poodle.

Some of Rocco's claims to fame during this time include getting to travel everywhere with Bernadette in a 'Gucci tote bag' and other people having “gone out and gotten a poodle after they met him”.

He got to travel back to New York in 1974 for Mack & Mabel, upon which he was said to be “mad for” the doll with curly black hair in the dressing room of Bernadette-as-Mabel that her dresser had made for her during the show

Indeed, Rocco got the privilege of going on the road with Bernadette when she was travelling around the country. Or at least he did, for a time. That was until “he got very aggressive”. Fiendish antics involved stretched to prompting lamentations on Bernadette's behalf of how “he would bark and wake me up”.

You might be cute, but Rocco, that's simply not on – the sleep is of paramount importance.

Anyone else feeling like some of the colour has been taken out their life?


I was feeling a little black and white... like there’s not much variety anymore.
I get up 🛌
I train 💪🏽
I work 📝
I sleep 😴
....and sometimes now I get to skate again, which is AMAZING!!!.....but I don’t feel I’m training yet.
It takes time to adjust to a new habit - so I’m this black and white period, why not jazz it up a little?
Make it swirly, make it vibrant! It doesn’t have to be plain and dull.
🖤🤍🖤🤍🖤
I think I imagined when the rinks opened, my life would feel magical and normal. The reality was that although it’s absolutely incredible having the ice, nothing is the same.
I wonder how many of you are feeling this too? Being grateful but also feeling a little empty?
We have all been through a very tricky experience. And perhaps now the world is opening up, we are right to feel a little odd about it all - it isn’t the same and won’t be for a while yet.
So....
I’d you’re feeling a little odd, it’s ok.
Find something that makes you happy. Be creative - I still love being able to be silly in my lounge, I enjoy some training.... so those are the things I need to let myself annoy for now until I feel more settled with the new world.
💓
How are you all feeling? The excitement of being able to do some of the things you love, but with restrictions in place?
It’s ok to feel a little discombobulated.... I think?
However you’re feeling, have a socially distanced 🤗 from me.
Looking forward to brighter days
❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💗🖤🤍

With no new theatre to see there is nothing else to do but throw back to what I was seeing this week in...



1998 - Talk of the City transformed the RSC’s already glorious Swan theatre into the glamorous world of the BBC radio studios in 1936. An interesting commentary on war, censorship and indeed on the BBC.

2005 - The Government Inspector was one of a number of really strong pieces to come out of the artistic trio at Chichester. Alistair McGowan starred with sterling support from the likes of Graham Turner and Sophie Louise Dann.

2015 - Mack and Mabel was a welcome return to some more dramatic stuff for Michael Ball. It never really quite managed to take off which is a fate this musical seems to have been cursed with all its life despite some cracking tunes in it.

2016 - Half a Sixpence was nothing short of joyous. Whilst watching you just knew that in Charlie Stemp you were watching the birth of a major new talent in musical theatre.

Does anyone else think that Mack and Mabel deserves so much more credit?

A great little show with wonderful music, which is why it's my musical of the week! What is your favourite song from this Jerry Herman classic?

Today in Broadway history: “An Evening with Jerry Herman” opened in 1998 at the Booth Theatre, where it played 28 performances.


.
The musical revue featured Herman (who played the piano onstage), along with Florence Lacey and Lee Roy Reams (who also directed). It showcased highlights of Herman's greatest songs from his musicals including Hello, Dolly!, Mame, La Cage Aux Folles, Mack & Mabel and Dear World.
.
Unfortunately, the show failed to find an audience during the slow summer months, and closed a month earlier than originally planned. This was also Herman’s last Broadway show.

Hello luvvies, to help celebrate our 50th anniversary we thought we'd introduce you to our members and help you get to know us all a little better.



Today we are introducing you to Neil.

Neil joined CTC four years ago for our 2016 production of Evita, which he says is his favourite CTC show to date. Neil says 'with Evita being my first show, it's probably my favourite as I was involved throughout and had to pick up a tricky dance number which was a great challenge but richly rewarding.'

Regarding his most treasured memory, Neil says he has enjoyed each show he has performed with CTC. He says 'the group have enabled me to get involved in spotlighting shows too which has been great fun. Everyone is so supportive for an ageing lovey such as myself and I look forward to doing many more.'

If Neil could perform any role in any show he says 'it would be the Childcatcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as I can portray creepiness in abundance!'

Who thinks Chitty Chitty Bang Bang would make a good CTC show?

Hello luvvies, to help celebrate our 50th anniversary we thought we'd introduce you to our members and help you get to know us all a little better.



Today we are introducing you to Jack.

Jack joined CTC in 2007 for our production of Jekyll and Hyde. Over the past 13 years Jack has appeared in many CTC shows and has played a number of roles, including; Ephraim in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Miss Understanding in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Nikos in Legally Blonde, and Mr Baumann in Mack & Mabel.

Jack's favourite CTC show to date is our 2019 production of RENT! Jack says 'I adore the show anyway, but performing in it gave me a new connection to the show and made me realise how incredible it actually is.'

Jack's favourite role played for CTC is Skimbleshanks in our 2016 production of Cats. Jack says 'Skimbleshanks has always been my favourite Cat and has such a ‘feel good’ song, so to get to sing it on stage was amazing! Although I’m still not sure how I remembered all those dances!'

When asked what his most treasured CTC memory was, Jack said 'there are far too many to single out one! The show week and rehearsal giggles, the audiences reactions and the incredible friendships I’ve formed through theatre are priceless.'

If Jack could perform in any show he would choose either Wicked or Mamma Mia. Jack says' they are both ‘feel good’ shows and would be fun to put on.'

Would anyone else like to see CTC perform Wicked or Mamma Mia? 🤞🏻

👁️📖⬇️ Sticking with the Mack & Mabel theme of late to time travel back to some old & eclectic oddities


One of Bernadette’s co-stars in Mack & Mabel was Lisa Kirk – whose previous notoriety included roles in Rogers & Hammerstein’s Allegro in 1947, Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate in 1948, as well as dubbing for Rosalind Russell as Louise in the 1962 Gypsy movie

A few years later in 1966, Lisa was playing the lead in a small scale summer stock production of a musical called Riverwind with an 18 year old Bernadette, still very much looking for her feet in the theatre world

Neither could’ve anticipated then they’d be reunited 8 years later as stars in a debuting, large-scale Broadway show, with a score whose brilliance would endure for decades to come

At this point in 1966, Bernadette was coming off the initial Off-Off-Broadway run of Dames at Sea at Café Cino (picture 3), before it became a much larger success in its 1968 Off-Broadway guise

After playing the role here for only about 3 weeks, Bernadette’s shoes were filled by her older sister Donna as she returned to Pennsylvania to the Summer Stock production of Riverwind she’d been involved with the year before

It's easy for 'summer stock' to be bandied around as a title, without really much consideration of its specificities. It’s a feat that isn't often helped by the limited amount of information that remains

If you’re going to tell me Bernadette played Liesel in such a production of The Sound of Music in 1965, don’t leave me with just a single line & no pictures or programs. That’s just cruel

There are a few titbits remaining about Bernadette’s first introduction to the summer stock world. And for a 17 year old, it wasn’t the most pleasant of introductions. Or more accurately – “it was awful”. They “slept in a broken down inn” and soon in turn discovered “there were a few bats loose in the building” – which swiftly caused “the end of any sleep”

Eek

Well luckily, summer stock did have some merits. It was here Bernadette met choreographer Don Price, who introduced her to Robert Dadah & in turn sparked her involvement with Dames at Sea

A few less bats & a few more successes from there on out, fortunately.

Here is Video #24 in There's No Place Like Home - Songs from a Quarantined Extrovert!!

🙌🏼🤩 This one is a MOOD. No one better to cover this iconic @officialbernadettepeters song than her biggest fan, @nat_grams We were able to put our Bernadette vs. Patti feud aside for this collaboration, and I'm so grateful to be back in touch with Natalie!! Since time is extra strange these days, we decided to sing about it. Music & lyrics by the amazing Jerry Herman. 💔🎶 #timehealseverything #butlovingyou #mackandmabel #jerryherman #musicaltheatre #mt #singersofinstagram #pianistsofinstagram

👁️📖⬇️ Mack & Mabel, 1974

(Post linked in story for previous context & tales on this)


Beyond the issues with the book, another reason attributed to the show’s status as a flop was the tension between the story it sought to tell & the methods it used to do so

The subject matter was darker than typical for musicals of the time – drug addiction, demises, death – and yet coexisted incongruously with elements like “Herman’s consistently upbeat, optimistic, & score”, & literal helter skelter slides for glamorous girls to apparate on (pictured)

It didn’t work. After 8 weeks, Mack & Mabel was no more. It could’ve then been consigned to the graveyard of forgotten theatre forever

Thankfully, it wasn’t

In 1981, the show was first produced in England, with Britain’s best approximation of theatre royalty, Imelda Staunton, stepping into Mabel’s shoes (her first of what will be 5 Bernadette-shared productions by 2022)

Soon after this, British ice skaters Torvill & Dean were scouring local radio archives, & found Mack & Mabel’s overture to use for their subsequently gold-medal winning routine at the 1982 world championships. After floods of calls from viewers, the original cast album was re-released & even reached the charts

And so years later & out of the blue, Mack & Mabel was surging in public consciousness

This parallels the present day with ‘Time Heals Everything’. Who could’ve predicted a global pandemic to bring this cabaret standard into a new prominence of existence. Suddenly the videos of Bernadette were popping up everywhere, with its lyrics even being incorporated into wider cultural elements, like the ‘Tuesday, Thursday’ tagline of @benrimalower & @danielnolen 's quarantine live streams

(If you haven't listened already, their latest podcast provides the chance to delight in the luxury of shared joys, and gasp in mock horror at the occasional unabashed savagery in their look at Bernadette's Royal Festival Hall concert)

It’s that ability to revisit features, even if they don’t exist in real time, that can allow old musicals to endure or find even greater relevance, popularity & significance in the present. If sometimes for the most unpredictable of reasons

In honor of the great and legendary composer and lyricist, Jerry Herman, who would have turned 89 today, a very Happy Birthday!

🎉🎶 Liza Minnelli pictured with Jerry Herman and Michael Feinstein, circa mid 1990s.
.
.
One of the greatest, most highly renowned American composers of all time, Jerry Herman composed the scores for the hit Broadway musicals Hello, Dolly!, Mame, Mack and Mabel (lyricist) and the phenomenal, La Cage aux Folles. He also wrote the musical, Dear World, from which Liza gave a poignant, resonant and exquisite performance of the song, “I Don’t Want To Know” in her March, 1986 London Palladium concert and momentous May, 1987 three week engagement at Carnegie Hall.
.
.
Jerry Herman received five Tony Award nominations during his prestigious career, winning twice for his remarkable work on Hello, Dolly! and La Cage aux Folles. His song, “I Am What I Am,” written for Folles, became an anthem for Gay Pride. In 2009, he was awarded a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre and was also a recipient of the Kennedy Centre Honors in 2010.

Herman is most notable for his scores of classic Broadway musicals such as Hello, Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage aux Folles. In addition to receiving the Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre in 2009, he'd been nominated for the Tony Award five times, and won twice, for Hello, Dolly! and La Cage aux Folles.

IT’S TODAY! Renowned composer-lyricist Jerry Herman was born 89 years ago.

Herman wrote the score for Mame, which Lucy sang in the 1974 film adaptation. Lucy first became acquainted with Jerry Herman’s wonderful tunes when she saw her good friend Carole Cook star in Herman’s revue Parade in 1960. Lucy would later go on to see Herman’s smash hits Hello, Dolly!, Mame, and La Cage Aux Folles onstage. Lucy loved the philosophy of Herman’s songs. Although Lucy may not have been Jerry Herman’s first choice for the role of Mame, the two had a warm working and personal relationship that continued for years. Lucie Arnaz starred in a 1976 production of Herman’s Mack and Mabel and both her mother and father cheered her on on opening night. Herman also wrote the song “Member of the Family,” which was performed by a bevy of CBS stars, including Lucy, on the 1978 anniversary celebration CBS on the Air. In 1982, three of “Jerry’s Girls,” Lucy, Ethel Merman, and Ginger Rogers, appeared with him on The Merv Griffin Show. Although Jerry may have left us last year, his life affirming songs will endure forever.

Today marks the birthday of award-winning choreographer and dancer, Gower Champion! (1919-1980).


.
.
Champion danced solo on Broadway in the 30s and 40s before meeting Marjorie Belter, who became his wife and dance partner in 1947. They danced in seven film musicals throughout the 50s--as well as a number of television variety shows.
.
.
In 1948 Champion directed his first Broadway musical, #LendAnEar , winning his first of eight Tony Awards. He followed that up with multiple wins for #ByeByeBirdie #HelloDolly #TheHappyTime and #42ndStreet
.

It’s such fun recording these with the VTO (Virtual Theatre Orchestra) and seeing @patrickrufeymd work his magic to orchestrate it and put it together.

👁️📖⬇️ After all the intense geekery and analytical minutiae of yesterday, I think something a tad more light-hearted and frivolous is in order for today


The block colours in these are rather fun indeed and they do make for quite an impactful quartet

These were from 1975 as part of the (many) promotional shots taken for the Tony Awards that same year
This year was a pretty big & significant Tony's year for Bernadette. It marked her first nomination as Leading Actress in a Musical (Angela Lansbury won for the 1974 Gypsy revival). Considering Bernadette’s position as a relative newcomer at this point among the bigger Broadway names, the centrality she's given and the frequency with which she pops up during this ceremony is unexpected and a tad remarkable

You see, in addition to her own nomination and presence there in relation to Mack & Mabel, Bernadette also played a key role as part of the group of performers who appear recurrently through the evening. The theme centred on the history of performers and shows from the Winter Garden theatre, where the event itself was being held. Various eclectic and entertaining numbers get performed around the presentations, including moments featuring Bernadette’s Scottish dancing, along with her (third!?) appearance dressed as a nurse in a vaudevillian style sketch that I've come across

It also sees Bernadette alongside Angela singing part of ‘Everything’s Coming up Roses’ to close the show, in what may have been the first Gypsy-related performance she’d done as an adult

In other promo photos and as part of a segment for the night, Bernadette appeared representing Marilyn Miller – one of the most popular Broadway musical stars of the 1920s and early 1930s, who I happened to be watching Judy Garland portraying last night in the 1946 film ‘Till the Clouds Roll By’ (featuring a Liza-sized baby bump…)

Though Mack & Mabel (tragically) took home none of the 8 awards it was nominated for, it was still an eventful evening nonetheless for Bernadette, who had rather a lot to do!

Errrrrrm excuse me you 2...

Hello luvvies, to help celebrate our 50th anniversary we thought we'd introduce you to our members and help you get to know us all a little better.


As it's her birthday today, we thought we'd introduce you to Holly.
Holly's first show with CTC was We Will Rock You in 2008, and since then Holly has played a number of roles for CTC.
Holly says her favourite CTC show has to be our 2016 production of Cats. Holly says 'it was a fantastic/ yet totally random show. It was such hard work', but so rewarding and was great fun rehearsing and performing the show.' Holly's favourite role to date has been Rizzo in our 2019 production of Grease. Holly says 'It's a show I've always wanted to do and Rizzo is such a strong and complicated character. It was an absolute joy to do and to do it with my amazing Pink Ladies and T - Birds was the cherry on top!
Holly says she has so many amazing memories from being a member of CTC!! Mainly to do with performing with her mum, Julie. But her oldest, most loved & treasured memory would have to be when she first auditioned to be in CTC. Holly says 'We had to sing in threes and I was put with mum and another member. I remember signing and my mum burst into tears, as it was the first time she had heard me sing. Hopefully it wasn't because she thought it was awful!!! Haha but we had a big hug afterwards and my incredible theatre journey started from there!' Hollys dream role would be Florence in Chess. Holly says' I love this show, and have done ever since my mum played the role. The rock/ballad style of music in the show is stunning, (bit like JCS) and the story behind it all speaks to me too, it's my dream to be able to play that part one day!!!' Happy Birthday Holly!

The occasion is the opening of their daughter Lucie’s first-night performance at the Performing Arts Center in Miami Beach, Florida. Daughter Lucie stars in a production called, Mack and Mabel. The occasion was considered of such significance in their daughter’s career, that the famous parents just had to come together for the event." newspaper article 1976

Today we remember Robert Preston, who was born on June 8, 1918.

Preston was Lucy’s leading man in her final big screen project, “Mame.” Preston was cast as Beauregard Jackson Pickett Burnside and the screenplay emphasized the love between Mame and Beau more than in previous iterations of Mame’s story. “Mame” reunited Preston with his “The Music Man” choreographer Onna White. In addition to the show stopping title number, Preston sang a new song, “Loving You,” which was written especially for him by Jerry Herman. A few months after “Mame” was released, Preston was back on Broadway in another Jerry Herman musical, “Mack and Mabel.” In 1984, Preston was honored by The Thalians, the Hollywood mental health charity. Lucy, a former honoree, recreated the “Mame” number in tribute to Mr. Preston. Upon his 1987 death, Lucy remarked, “He was a wonderful performer, a professional from the word 'go' and a great gentleman.” #lucilleball #robertpreston #mame #mamedennis #themusicman #mackandmabel #jerryherman #onnawhite #thalians #moviemusical #broadway #classicfilm #classichollywood #thelucylounge

"76 TROMBONES": On this day in 1918, Robert Preston - star of THE MUSIC MAN - was born.

A popular actor in Hollywood but never a top star, Bette Davis considered Preston "the most under rated actor" in movies.
.
But in 1957 he found the role of a lifetime in Broadway smash hit THE MUSIC MAN. Preston reprised his role for the 1962 movie version, even though studio bosses first approached Cary Grant, who apparently said "Not only will I not do it, but if Robert Preston doesn't play the role I won't even go and see it!" (However, this apocryphal story has also been attributed to Grant in praise of Rex Harrison when Grant was approached to play the role of Henry Higgins in the film of MY FAIR LADY).
.
Preston continued to appear in Broadway musicals including I DO! I DO! and MACK AND MABEL, achieving a last hurrah in movies just a few years prior to his death with an Oscar Nominated turn in VICTOR/VICTORIA (1981)

👁️📖⬇️ A duet of sheer genius that you never knew you needed in your life until you realised it existed – Carol & Bernadette’s wonderful rendition of Marry the Man Today from Guys & Dolls.

One of the highlights from the great score of Guys & Dolls, this song is delightfully wicked & witty, and getting to see these two do it together is a marvel

It was performed in a sketch on the Carol Burnett Show in 1970, almost at the very beginning of Bernadette’s appearances on the programme. Contrasting this with some more Carol Burnett show material, the next image depicts scenes from this early episode combined with those from Bernadette’s final appearance made 8 years later in 1978

This second (equally fun) scene saw a thematic continuation of the more well known Typists sketch a few years previous – but this time plunged the friendly, in sync office co-workers into bitter rivalry. Much ostentatious sabotage & hilarity ensues, with the no-holds-barred cutting of phone cords & complete ripping of blouses

Though it might not be blatantly evident in the photos (blame the hair), things were very different between these time points. Much had changed in those 8 years

At the beginning of 1970, Bernadette had only 1 real commercial theatre success to her name in Dames at Sea & no significant TV or film credits in the infancy of her entry to the LA world

By 1978, she had made her film debut (Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies); co-led an entire TV series (All’s Fair) and appeared in Mel Brooks’ box office hit (Silent Movie), which both earned her Golden Globe nominations; and meritoriously received two Tony award nominations for her well-regarded work back on Broadway (On the Town and Mack & Mabel)

More so than just its provision of light-hearted comedic relief then, the Carol Burnett show was significant in bookending an important phase of Bernadette’s early career. This upwards trajectory of the 70s only continued from there, entering the 80s in what’s often regarded as her definitive theatre years, through unforgettable creations of 3 significant Broadway roles (Sunday, Song & Dance, Into the Woods), which garnered a further 2 Tony nominations & her first deserved win.

Did you watch the Kings and Queens of theatre singing in #KingsOfBroadway this evening by @quick_fantastic @alexpark_er for @nhscharitiestogether @actingforothers @blklivesmatter.

Only two days left to watch #themidnightgang online from @chichesterft - the play of the book by #davidwalliams

I haven't seen it yet but it looks like enormous fun and Chichester Festival Theatre always does great stuff! I particularly enjoyed their #mackandmabel #guys and dolls and #barnum shows in recent years. It's always worth the trip from London to see a show, and in this case you don't even have to leave your sofa!

MACK AND MABEL
Music and Lyrics: Jerry Herman
Book: Michael Stewart
.........


Mack and Mabel with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart explores the whirlwind romantic relationship between Hollywood director Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand, who became one of his biggest stars.
The original Broadway production at the Majestic Theatre in 1974 starred Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters, it has received eight Tony awards but did not win any. The production first opened in 1995 at the Piccadilly Theatre in London and ran for 270 performances with a west end revival in 2006.

A word from Amy on why she chose "Wherever He Ain't"
.........


Mac and Mabel as it’s such a well-known show that tells a story of a confusing romantic relationship between a Hollywood director and his leading lady. It’s Based on a heart-breaking true story. Wherever he aint appealed to me, as I’m venturing out into different styles to develop as a performer, the song provides a bouncy yet dark twist, with themes of women’s independence. This choice is a great celebration of Jerry Herman’s work and an insight to the great Musicals written in this decade.

👁️📖⬇️ Our Mr Sondheim & Bernadette while they were still finishing the hat


Sunday itself was still very much in development during its time in its Playwright Horizons workshop. It principally consisted of only the first act, while the second act was previewed here in just the last few performances before the move to Broadway. Bernadette said in 2011 that they presented the second act twice at Playwright Horizons. The 1986 book Sondheim & Co recounts it as three. Whatever the minutiae, the point is evident that Act 2 was completely not a fixed entity when the Broadway transfer occurred

Between the move into the Booth Theatre, the beginning of previews on April 2nd 1984, and the opening night exactly a month later, new songs were continually being added. Steve’s to-the-wire efforts of putting it together & the suspense it engendered left the cast on tenterhooks in rehearsals, with Bernadette saying “Every day we’d wait to see if a song would appear”. Children and Art & We Do Not Belong Together were among those added on Broadway

This adaptiveness & room for development was one of the things that drew Bernadette to the project to begin with. When James first called her about it, the show was just an outline, with no proper script. The workshop notion was appealing to her in its flexibility, saying “I thought it was brilliant, as could go on if I liked it, or leave if I didn’t.” She knew full well the pitfalls of heading into a show with an undeveloped script after the disappointments of La Strada! in 1969, and was thus careful about picking projects. This was to be the first Broadway musical she would appear in after nearly 10 years, following Mack & Mabel. It’s understandable to see why she wanted to be given the chance to test the waters before committing in totality

But that’s forgetting it wasn’t just any new project, it was a Sondheim project. Bernadette had long been aware of Sondheim’s work & knew how much she liked & appreciated it. The chance to be in a Sondheim show herself, in whatever form that would yet become, was enough to get her to sign on to the workshop on the basis of one song & 30 pages of the book alone

More on this to come tomorrow

It’s that time again! Here’s a musical delight by Nic Wilson from the musical Mack and Mabel.

“See that fascinating creature, with perfection stamped on ev’ry feature.” Story Time 👇🏼
.

.
I used to have terrible anxiety meeting and talking to patients, especially when it was my first time meeting them.
.
.
Until, after seeing Jane Krakowski’s performance of “Look What Happened to Mabel” on Youtube, which gave me so much fan girl joy, I gave myself a tool to settle my anxiety by shifting my focus. How?
.
.
Whenever I felt the anxiety starting to creep in, I would picture her in my head singing “So rattle me beads... look what happened to Mabel” and would smile (no matter what)... My focus shifted, and surely and SURELY, I rose above the anxiety.
.
It was such a simple shift. I didn’t even realize that what I was doing was rewiring my brain from the conditioned anxiety.
.
And that is the story of how my love for the super adorable and talented Miss Jane Krakowski helped me transcend my anxiety 😁
.
.
Thanks for reading this! I hope that whatever’s causing your anxiety, that you find the strength to empower yourself and get through it. 💙 You got this!

Leftover yarn Bonanza! Not-so-good-at-knitting-me dived into my box of leftover yarn and out came a par of mismatching cactus baby mittens and a HP teamed washcloth.

I was three rows short of white for the washcloth, so i had to subside with the only other cotton tread i got: bright orange🙈
The baby mittens pattern are from a blog called Mack and Mabel and the flowers are a Basic Knitted Flower pattern i found at Love Crafts by an Adeline Too:)

I've been having a very Mack & Mabel day... Here are some photographic gems from 1974 along with some fun history


Bernadette only ended up as Mabel through a manner of fate. While briefly in New York to tape a game show, Bernadette had unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Mabel. At the time, she was was living principally in LA and trying to focus her career on television & film. On the plane then intending to return to LA, pre-departure engine troubles suddenly required everyone to disembark. Bernadette took this opportunity to call her agent from a phone booth and found him simultaneously engaged on another line. This just happened to be with Mack & Mabel's producers, who were frantically conveying that she had got the lead part after all and were imploring her not to get back on the plane!
And so just like that, a call which would otherwise have been missed changed the plans entirely

Unfortunately, even with Bernadette & Robert Preston's big names in starring roles, and one of Jerry Herman's best scores, the show's weaker book prevented the production remaining open longer than around 65 performances. This premature closure however didn't stop Bernadette's inimitable origination of Mabel Normand earning her a 2nd nomination for a Tony award at only the age of 26

There's some wry and circular irony in the fact that Bernadette was to lose the award to none other than Angela Lansbury in none other than the role of Mama Rose in the first revival of Gypsy - the same role which even 30 years later would continue to thwart Bernadette from winning another Tony

Still, at the time, Angela had been warmly complimentary, saying "You'd have trouble bettering Bernadette's performance, quite frankly", and to this day Bernadette's brilliance in the role has sustained & given us one of the most fabulous soundtracks in Broadway's history. "Time Heals Everything",
"Look What Happened to Mabel" & "I Won't Send Roses" are themselves examples of showtune and ballad masterpieces that also take a great deal to be bettered

There'll be more to come on Mack & Mabel in its slice of theatre history as a flop with a more enduring legacy

I took a day off but I am BACK with a song from my favorite Jerry Herman musical!

Drawing my inspiration from @alexandrasocha , who blew my mind in the recent Encores! production (Fun story, I was sitting 5 seats away from the original Mabel, Bernadette Peters, who rightfully gave her a standing O at the end!!) See you tomorrow! @playbill

I think this is one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

In Jerry’s memoir he talks about how it took him forever to figure out how to write a love song for Mack. In the end, showing he cares by warning Mabel of all that he won’t be is the most heartfelt gesture he could give. Enjoy Grandma Sharp’s newest favorite!

P.S. Insta isn’t letting me post on my IGTV for some reason, so u only get half of the video... sry!

This is my favorite show tune ever. I first heard it in a Kennedy Center Honors for Jerry Herman (the composer) and thought it was a beautiful torch song.

I arranged a version for the piano (don’t ask to me to play I don’t have a keyboard) and it holds a places in my heart

Felices por vos y como siempre, Chapeau!

"I Won't Send Roses" (1974) by Jerry Herman.⁣

The most beautiful melody from the Broadway Show "Mack and Mabel". Big shot silent-era movie producer Mack Sennett sings to his lover what a lousy husband he would be. She marries him anyway. Ah, Hollywood. Show opened with great fanfare, all-star cast, famous producer David Merrick. And closed after a month. Ah, Broadway.

I prefer to sing ‘Time Heals Everything’ than ‘Happy Birthday’ when washing my hands as per Coronavirus info 🥳 You’re welcome for this breaking news!

So may we introduce Mack and Mabel. Fabulous vintage formica bedroom set.

Matching walnut effect dressing table and chest of drawers.

It's true that even though they have a tumultuous relationship they wouldn't want to be parted.
Despite their slight proportions they both can be dramatic at times but swear they are ready have to give up 'living life in the fast lane' although we're not so sure........ Mack and Mabel, full of class with a whole lotta sass - Ooh what a pair.

Likes: silent movies, tap dance, stockings & cigars.

Dislikes: misunderstandings, moody partners, missed opportunities.

Happy 72nd Birthday to Sondheim’s greatest siren, the ageless Bernadette Peters!

She’s one of the most critically acclaimed Broadway performers of all time with seven Tony nominations and two wins. Her performance at the 2003 Tony’s, the year she was nominated for Gypsy (slide 9), received the longest standing ovation in its history due to the fact that Bernadette was suffering from a severe respiratory infection and still performed Rose’s Turn which is considered one of the most difficult numbers for any singer to tackle! ⁣

"SOME OF US DON'T LIKE THE WAY YOU'VE BEEN TELLING IT":

Happy to 72nd birthday to Bernadette Peters, the two time (and honorary) Tony Award winner best known for musicals such as SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, INTO THE WOODS, SONG AND DANCE and MACK AND MABEL. First appearing on stage as a child in a tour of GYPSY, she came to prominence in the off Broadway musical DAMES AT SEA. In Hollywood she earned plaudits for her appearances in Mel Brooks' SILENT MOVIE (1976) and opposite her then offscreen romantic partner Steve Martin in THE JERK (1979) and PENNIES FROM HEAVEN (1981), for which she won the Golden Globe. More recently she completed a run in HELLO, DOLLY! back on Broadway. "Promise you'll never go away again .."

What's YOUR favorite Bernadette performance? It's really impossible to choose, isn't it? 🎶

Happily, we can also just listen to her albums: I am partial to her Live from Carnegie Hall album. Brilliant. 👏

Trying not to blink with @shaunrenoir ❤️ I loved this crazy drunk blonde.

Phyllis was PHHHHHabulous...just ask her. #mackandmabel #lookatthatboat #performer #dancer #musicaltheatre

Finally got to see a production of this Jerry Herman gem (and flop).

#mackandmabel @nycitycenter #encores #jerryherman

Last night I finally got the pleasure of seeing my friend @alexandrasocha perform on the big stage and it was special to say the least.

#mackandmabel

I think it is impossible to leave a Jerry Herman show and not have at least one of its songs stuck in your head!

#broadway #iloveny #mackandmabel #whereeverheaint #timehealseverything #nycitycenter #nycc

I will never forget last night: 90 years to the day since the real-life Mabel Normand passed away, I watched @alexandrasocha bring her back to life.

Her talent, joy, and gravitas overflowed the enormous @nycitycenter. Her “Time Heals Everything” stopped the show. You could feel Jerry Herman in the room. 2,000 cheering people, and my face turned into a human heart-eye emoji. 😍 I am in awe of this woman, and am so lucky to be her arm candy. #MackAndMabel #Encores (📸: @emiliomk and Joan Marcus)

Saturday’s adventures to NYC for Mack and Mabel @nycitycenter and a last minute decision to see @moulinrougebway.

I was pleasantly surprised by Moulin Rouge. My expectations were pretty low based on the cast recording, but it turned out to be a really entertaining event. Mack and Mabel definitely has book issues but the music was great and I was thrilled to finally see @sillsla perform the whole show.

Such a great day in NYC with Kelsey! #MackandMabel #theatre

I can’t say it often enough, we’re just so lucky to have Encores, an absolute jewel in the crown of musical theater.

#DouglasSills is always fantastic - a great singer and actor. Had so much charisma and vitality as Mack that you really got a sense of the man. (Someone get Sills back on Broadway, STAT!).
@AlexandraSocha as Mabel has a wonderful voice and comedic chops and I can see her one day joining the ranks of Sutton Foster and Laura Benanti.
It’s always a thrill to have a full orchestra on stage. All the singers and dancers were terrific. Another good job by @NYCityCenter. @sillsla. #mackandmabel. #nycitycentersencores #douglassills #alexandrasocha

#mackandmabel fantastic

Two of Broadway’s brightest lights starred in Mack and Mabel at New York City Center last week.

Everyone else, I’m just letting you know you missed seeing me in this costume on stage. Yes I’m a mix of a newsie, flash dance dancer, and a cagelle. Also here are some pictures of the black people in the show because...black history month! #closing #onoffbroadway #blackhistorymonth #mackandmabel #broadway #tap #tapfamily #wellthatwasquick

Shimmying into Sunday (last 2 shows!) of #MackandMabel at @nycitycenter 💃🏻

Could not stop taking pictures of the gorgeous @nycitycenter last night!

Originally called the Mecca Temple, the building seems to have been owned by the Shriners. What I noticed about the audience is that rather than tourists, it was full of New Yorkers. Plus it’s a great deal: Broadway-quality performances for $35! Although you might feel like you’re watching a show from the side of a mountain ⛰

This afternoon's bill - the @nycitycenter Encores production of Jerry Herman's Mack and Mabel.

Great music and performances to told a story of a silent film director who only wanted to make people happy and his muse, whose story was ultimately a sad one. Loved hearing the beautiful voice of @sillsla as Mack and @alexandrasocha brought some great pluck to the role of Mabel. Terrific supporting performances by @majorattaway @lilcoopz @mberresse (whom I always love to watch) @evankasprzak @plznfanku as well as the rest of the cast. I love how the Encores program breathes new life into good, but flawed shows and doesn't let their audience forget them. Overall a well done production. Also, a great to meet my fellow theatrelovin IG friend @christopherjudd326 in real life!

Watching the updated version of this rarely performed show and I have to say it was well done for something of an unusual period piece.


#mackandmabel #broadwaynerd #encores #nycitycenter #broadway @yosh25

Alexandra Socha and Douglas Sills were absolutely delightful, and this production of Mack & Mabel made me so happy.

Thank you @nycitycenter for bringing this show back to life, even for a short time. Have wonderful closing performances in honor of the 90th anniversary of her death. #mackandmabel #stillmyfavoritemusicalthatalmostnoonehasheardof #joeandshannanyc2020

@officialbernadettepeters graciously allowed me the honor of a #selfie following tonight’s performance of #MackandMabel.

She debuted the role of Mabel on #Broadway. #theatregeek #mackandmabel #theatrelife #manhattan

When your friends are #broadway stars you have an amazing time with amazing childhood friends seeing them perform.

What a tremendous night at #mackandmabel. @alexandrasocha and @ghawe love you and I’m so proud!

Excited to start a new Encores season at @nycitycenter with the show that @marybethihle wishful-Tweeted into existence!

This show is both hilariously funny and very dark at times. Douglas Sills and Alexandra Socha are wonderful in the title roles. #encores #nycitycenter #mackandmabel #jerryherman

Second show of the day! Mack & Mabel at @nycitycenter Encores! Happy to finally know this show.

#mackandmabel @nycitycenter

I have always LOVED this score and finally get a chance to see it on stage.

The lyrics to “Look What Happened to Mabel” alone are simply brilliant. #encores #mackandmabel #tonightsbill #jerryherman

#mackandmabel

For all the vagaries of the industry itself, nobody appreciates their legends and elders like theater people do.

I saw the Encores! presentation of the famed flop MACK & MABEL today, which was slated before Jerry Herman died last December. While the orchestra played his gorgeous entr'acte, framed photos of Jerry at three stages of his career descended from the rafters. The love of 2,500 theater-goers and makers in the audience was palpable and unifying. I was reminded of being in that same room when Ellen Greene returned to Little Shop after thirty years, a roar of joy I have never heard before or since embracing someone loved and dearly missed.
Jerry Herman gave so much happiness to so many of us who never knew him. I didn't always understand his appeal; it took some growing up on my part. But now--Of course we want happy songs to carry in our head on bad days, through bad years. Of course it is a valid function of the theater to show how wonderful life could be. By the time I saw HELLO, DOLLY! as an adult, "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" made me cry. By the time I saw MACK & MABEL today, as unquestionably mismatched as Herman's jauntiness is with the subject matter in this case, hearing "Look What Happened To Mabel" made me scream. We are living in the echo of a show business that will never exist the same way again, and I am often at my happiest when I don't feel alone in acknowledging it with immense gratitude.

#mackandmabel #encores #jerryherman

Me and @alexandrasocha at City Center's production of Mack & Mabel, a piece that has become a tribute to its stellar composer.

#alexandrasocha #mackandmabel #mackandmabelatcitycenter #citycenterencores #jerryherman

Last night I went to @nycitycenter for the first time.

I’m such a sucker for this architecture, having grown-up going to @thefoxtheatre so often, but this theatre is a jewel box. It took my breath away. The show, #MackAndMabel , was a delight; I could have eaten the orchestra with a spoon. A gorgeous night.
We’ve been here for nearly three weeks. Sometimes I forget that we’re not leaving.

Alcoholic tea for two after #mackandmabel

I love an #Encores #MackAndMabel @nycitycenter

All I know about Mack & Mabel is Jerry Herman wrote the music. And I only know 1 song.

Can honestly say this is the most content I’ve ever been with a performance I’ve delivered on stage. Also thank you to @emilykristenmorris who’s only been tutoring me for a few lessons, but has already worked miracles. Very grateful ☺️. #TimeHealsEverything #MackAndMabel #musictheatre #musicalcover #broadway #westend #singer #actress #actor #theatre

Bernadette Peters in a scene from Mack and Mabel 1974.

With the splashy “Mack & Mabel,” Which splashed, at times rather damply, into the Majestic Theater last night, wide‐eyed, diminutive and contralto Bernadette Peters found herself as a major Broadway star.

Bernadette Peters has always been a waif, but here she is a tough little waif who is both radiant and touching. It is an unfortunate fact of the story that at the end her role fades away to a death announcement, but her picture of a young star raddled by cocaine is as good as her subtle caricature of an oldtime movie queen in a clever spoof movie sequence.

From The New York Times BY Hark Harris

Just finished an amazing first day of rehearsals! I got to sing, play piano, and catch props while playing!

😝🤣🙃 So excited to be making my stage debut with @nycitycenter in #MackAndMabel !! Never thought in my wildest dreams I’d ever work as an “actress” but sometimes life presents sudden and fun opportunities!!
.
And the show revolves around making music for silent films, so as a composer I’m totally nerding out!!!

Hey @nycitycenter good to see you again! #MackAndMabel

Today, we begin. This is a reminder to me that everything over the next three weeks...is for Jerry.

Seeing as it's opening night tomorrow, it's time for our last Mack & Mabel themed #MeetTheCastMonday


Today we're introducing you to Gareth who is playing the title role of Mack Sennett. Mack Sennett was a pioneer of the movie industry, directing some of the most famous silent films and making a star out of Charlie Chaplin and Mabel Normand.

Gareth is no stranger to Loughborough audiences having played many leading roles with different groups, but this is his first time on stage with CTC. An accomplished musician, Gareth is often found in our orchestras.

This weekend sees us move into the theatre ready for our opening night on Tuesday.

But first we have time for our penultimate Mack & Mabel themed #funfactfriday

Whilst the story of Mabel Normand is a tale of a talented actresses rising to be one of films. Most shining stars, her life and career came to an end shrouded in tragedy.

Throughout the 1920s, her name was linked with widely publicised scandals, including the 1922 murder of William Desmond Taylor, whom Mabel had formed a close relationship with. This was followed in 1924 with the shooting of Courtland S. Dines, who was shot by Normand's chauffeur using her pistol. She was not a suspect in either crime but her reputation and popularity suffered.
Normand's co-star in many films, Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle, was the defendant in three widely publicised trials for manslaughter in the death of actress Virginia Rappe. Although Arbuckle was acquitted, the scandal destroyed his career, and his films were banned from exhibition for a short time. Since she had made some of her best works with him, much of Normand's output was withheld from the public as a result.

Normand's health then declined due to tuberculosis. After an extended stay in Pottenger Sanitorium, she died from tuberculosis on February 23, 1930 in Monrovia, California, at the age of 37. She was interred as Mabel Normand-Cody at Calvary Cemetery, Los Angeles.

Come and see us at @lborotownhall next week when we will be brining the story of Mabel Normand to life, live on stage, featuring an incredible cast of local talent, supported by a stunning 19 piece orchestra. #friday #friyay #theweekendstartshere #tgif #loughborough #loughboroughtownhall #leicestershire #leicester #shepshed #coalville #hathern #nottingham #derby #rothley #quorn #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #mackandmabel #macksennett #mabelnormand #jerryherman #jerryhermanmusical #musicaltheatre #broadwaymusical #amdram #amateurtheatre #amateurdramatics

With only one week to go until opening night it is time for our penultimate #MeetTheCastMonday


This week we're introducing Holly who will be playing Mabel Normand. Mabel Normand was an American silent-film actress, screenwriter, director, and producer. She was a popular star and collaborator of Mack Sennett in his Keystone Studio films, and at the height of her career in the late 1910s and early 1920s, had her own movie studio and production company.Onscreen, she appeared in 12 successful films with Charlie Chaplin and 17 with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, sometimes writing and directing (or co-writing/directing) movies featuring Chaplin as her leading man.

Holly is no stranger to CTC audiences having recently played the roles of Rizzo in Grease and Maureen in Rent. #mabelnormand #mackandmabel #CTCfifty #ctcfamily #ctcpresents #meetthecast #localperformer #localtalent #localtheatre #supportlocal #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #Studio3bySevern #PixaPro

Thank goodness its the weekend, and to kick it off is this week's #funfactfriday - pictured here is Mack Sennett reviving The Academy Honorary Award.



The Academy Honorary Award – instituted in 1950 for the 23rd Academy Awards – is given annually by the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). The award celebrates motion picture achievements that are not covered by existing Academy Awards, although prior winners of competitive Academy Awards are not excluded from receiving the Honorary Award.

In 1937 Mack Sennett was awarded The Academy Honoray Award - "For his lasting contribution to the comedy technique of the screen, the basic principles of which are as important today as when they were first put into practice, the Academy presents a Special Award to that master of fun, discoverer of stars, sympathetic, kindly, understanding comedy genius – Mack Sennett." Come and see our production of Mack & Mabel to learn how Mack Sennett came up with the Bathing Beauties and Keystone Cops, utilised the famous pie in the face, and discovered a star in Mabel Normand. Tickets avaible now from @lborotownhall

2 years ago I performed this at “Theatre Ontario’s Next Generation Showcase.“ I’m re-listening to these lyrics and the WORDS THAT I SANG 2 YEARS AGO ARE BEING MANIFESTED NOW.



The character, Mabel, is just a gal working in a restaurant... until she find herself starring in a feature film!!!! She sings this song as she sees herself on-screen for the first time. 📺📽 This song is so special to me. I’ve started working more and more with the camera and I feel like all these words will continue to come true.... Excited to see what has happened in 2 more years when I look back at this again. 🎥🎞 LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO MILLIE!!!!!!!!!!!! #theatre #dressrehearsal #memories #toronto #theatreontario #showcase #singing #singer #musictheatre #grad #performance #actor #theatre #film #tv #lookwhathappenedtomabel #mackandmabel #jerryherman

Broadway marquees are dimmed for a full minute to honor the quintessential positivity and joy of Jerry Herman, who passed away over the holidays.

I had this fantasy that the crowd would burst into the clap-a-long section from the end of “The Best of Times,” but I’m sure everyone was afraid of being off-key for such a master of melody.

Tonight we're back at rehearsals after our Christmas break, and we're down to the final three weeks of rehearsing before we open on the 28TH January at @lborotownhall


Time for another #MeetTheCastMonday and today we're introducing Carl who is playing the role of Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle. Arbuckle was an American silent film actor, comedian, director, and screenwriter. He started at the Selig Polyscope Company and eventually moved to Keystone Studios, where he worked with Mabel Normand. He mentored Charlie Chaplin and discovered Buster Keaton and Bob Hope. He was one of the most popular silent stars of the 1910s and one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood of his time.

Carl is no stranger to CTC audiences, having been in many CTC shows, and taking on a number of roles, including Bustopher Jones in Cats, Hospital Ghost in Ghost, Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd, and Bert Barry in 42nd Street. Tickets available now! #meetthecast #fattyarbuckle #silentmoviestars #silentmovie #1920s #CTCfifty #ctcfamily #ctcpresents #macksennett #mabelnormand #mackandmabel #musicaltheatre #localperformer #localtalent #localtheatre #loughborough #coalville #loughboroughtownhall #shepshed #catsthemusical #sweeneytodd #ghostmusical #42ndstreet

Great work today with the painting of the floor for Mack & Mabel.

Just a coat of varnish to be done at a later date. A huge thanks to our members Michael, Holly, Julie, Craig, Aaron, Jordan and Matt.

Where has this week gone? Time for our first #funfactfriday of 2020.

On Monday we introduced you to Jack who is playing Baumann in our forthcoming production of Mack & Mabel, so today we thought we'd share some facts on the real Baumann.
Charles O. Baumann was an American film producer, film studio executive, and pioneer in the motion picture industry. He was a partner in the Crescent Film Company formed in 1908 and in the Bison Life Motion Pictures production company formed in 1909. In 1912, he was a founder and the first president of Universal Film Manufacturing Company (now Universal Studios). One of his most-successful companies was the Keystone Film Company, the production unit headed by Mack Sennett, which produced the first films to feature Charlie Chaplin. Adam Kessel and Baumann's New York Motion Picture Company produced many films under a number of brand names, including Broncho, Domino and Kay-Bee. Other companies formed by Baumann include the 101 Bison Company and Reliance Motion Picture Corporation. #baumann #charlesbaumann #macksennett #mackandmabel #mabelnormand #charliechaplin #silentmovie #silentmoviestars #silentmovies #slapstick #keystonecops #bathingbeauties #hollywood #hollywoodstudios #jerryherman #jerryhermanmusical #iwontsendroses #tapyourtroublesaway #moviesweremovies #whereverheaint #timehealseverything #hitemonthehead #funfact #friyay #CTCfifty #loughboroughtownhall

Here's our first #throwbackthursday of 2020 and after seeing all of the recent reviews for the @catsmovie we thought we'd go back to January 2016 and our own production of this iconic musical.

Have any of our followers watched the movie yet?

Pictured here is @jackhardy1987 in the role of Skimbleshanks. CTC audiences can see Jack this January in our production of Mack & Mabel playing the role of Mr Baumann.

decade 🤯) This week we're introducing you to @jackhardy1987 who is playing Mr Baumann in Mack & Mabel. Mr Baumann is one half of Baumann and Kessel, the financial backers of the Sennett studios. It is with their financial help that Mack Sennett was able to move his studio from Brooklyn to LA.

Another snippet of a Jerry Herman favorite 'I Won't Send Roses' ❤️❤️❤️ #jerryherman #iwontsendroses #broadway #mackandmabel

Jerry Herman has died at 88. He was my favorite lyricist/composer and has left behind an incredible songbook.

My childhood consisted of hours listening to his original cast albums like #hellodolly #mame #lacageauxfolles #mackandmabel #milkandhoney #dearworld #jerryherman

Here’s to one of the very best.. #thebestoftimesisnow #ripjerryherman #hellodolly #mame #lacageauxfolles #mackandmabel #dearworld #showtune 💔

One of the greatest theatrical experiences of my career was playing Mabel Normand in “Mack and Mabel” at Barrington Stage Co.

Such a brilliant score and an incredible role to play - I so wish I could revisit it now with more “life” under my belt. “Time Heals Everything” remains one of the hardest songs I’ve ever had to sing, and that’s the brilliance of Jerry Herman - the songs seem deceptively simple, but they are poignant and powerful and unforgettable. I feel incredibly lucky to have experienced his genius firsthand, in addition to his graciousness and kind heart.
Love and thanks from plain little Nellie, the girl from the deli ❤️ @barringtonstage #mackandmabel

one of the all time great composer and lyricist. his music lives with us in memory, and he will be deeply missed forever.


“one of your old favorite songs from way back when.“ - Hello Dolly.
Rest in Peace Jerry.

Sad to hear of the death of Jerry Herman who wrote some wonderful musicals.

I met him briefly at a preview of Mack And Mabel revival in Nottingham. Lovely man. Pictured here are Angela Lansbury in Mame and Ginger Rogers in Hello Dolly. The wonderful songs he wrote ( both words and music) include “Time Heals Everything”, “I won’t send Roses” and the beautiful “Song on the Sand.” His song from Hello Dolly was featured in WALL-E - “Put on Your Sunday Clothes” ( which Michael Crawford sang in the movie version. #jerryherman #hellodolly #mame #mackandmabel #gingerrogers #angelalansbury

safe travels, Jerry Herman. Mack & Mabel has been one of my favourite shows of all time since age 8 (I wore out my cassette!) This score lives inside me 🌹🥀 #jerryherman #mackandmabel #vinyl

Getting to sing a Jerry Herman score every night is something I will never take for granted!

RIP ❤️

Jerry Herman’s death has really been sitting with me today, but listening to his music actually makes me smile rather than mourn.

The first cast album I ever owned was “Mame,” my entrance to musical theater. Not as a career, as a fan. I have no aspirations for show business. I’m happy in the audience, and rarely as happy as during a Jerry Herman show. I’ve seen Mame, Dolly and La Cage more times than I can count and small-scale productions of those and his less-remembered shows. I never left a Jerry Herman show without thinking,”that score was written by someone who never stopped loving his craft, who wasn’t cynical, wasn’t trying to change the world.” He was simply making it better for a few hours. In high school, I was in a photography class and the final assignment was to produce a five-minute still-photoshoot set to a song. Everyone picked pop songs of the era, but I used Jerry’s “I Don’t Want to Know” from Dear World (to this day my favorite song across all genres) and did a shoot with my grandmother going through old memorabilia of people and times of long ago.
The class and teacher tore it apart with almost gleeful fury. I didn’t care, I used a Jerry Herman song, something I am unlikely to ever do from my side of the footlights. I am a pretty joyless, detatched, overly-academic-minded sarcastic and negative person, but when I catch myself at my worst, I play some Jerry Herman and for at least a few hours, I want to hug the world and remember what a positive, hopeful and loving place it can be. Am I overstating it? Anyone who knows me would say yes, but the answer is no. As Jerry wrote early in his career:
“There’s just no tune as exiting as a showtune in 2/4. When it’s played, you can just tell, there’s footlights everywhere.
When it’s played, you can just smell, the greasepaint in the air.
It’s a smart beat that’s inviting, it’s the heartbeat of the score.
There’s just no tune as exciting as a showtune in 2/4.” He never lost that belief!

I remember clearly the first time I heard "La Cage Aux Folles" It made me laugh and cry and just

grin at the sheer brilliance of "I put a little more mascara on" and "I am what I am." I know that the songs were not written about a Norwegian woman living in suburban Indianapolis, but the lyrics hit home anyway. Life can be hard, but we fix our make-up and move on. Speaking of hitting home: "Mame" - "We need a little Christmas." I can't even - cue my waterworks! I love most musical theater, but Jerry Herman wrote songs that made me smile and cry. There was a light and true joy for life in his songs that I can relate to. He never knew me, but still he wrote songs for me. Rest in peace, you wonderful man. I loved you and your work so much, and I always will. Thank you so very much. ❤

The legendary Broadway composer, Jerry Herman, died today in Miami.

He was both openly gay and openly HIV-positive, and he was the composer/lyricist for classic Broadway tunes, including the iconic “I am what I am“, from “La Cage aux Folles“. He also wrote the classics “Hello. Dolly!“, and “Mame”, as well as “Dear World“, “Mack and Mabel“, and “Milk and Honey“, as well as the holiday classic, “Mrs. Santa Claus“. His music uplifts and inspires all of us. His anthem of self-validation, self-confidence, and even healthy defiance against those who would oppress us will live on as inspirations. He inspires me as a fellow gay man, an HIV-positive man, a gay men’s specialist therapist/coach, and as a composer/lyricist of my own musical about self-validation, “On the Boulevard”, debuting in 2020 in LA.

Featuring actor/director Lee Roy Reams, the ORIGINAL Minnie Fay, Sondra Lee and Marge Champion. A GREAT 25 minutes and Sondra Lee’s extraordinary remembrances of putting the show together is well worth the time to watch.

I was asked to sing this song in October 2018 in an evening celebrating the great, late Jerry Herman.

On first few listens I wasn’t thrilled and didn’t love it, but as I begin to explore the lyrics and the complexity/simplicity of heartbreak, it grew on me. My pianist John Cook and I veered from the original, as I wanted to create a more haunting and conflicted arrangement. From Jerry’s Broadway musical MACK AND MABEL. He lived in Miami and didn’t travel up to NYC for the event, so I never got to meet him😢Thank you for the melodies Jerry. ❤️RIP. #jerryherman #mackandmabel #instagay #rosehall #rip #sing #instasing #talltenors

Today we had no shout-outs for the songsheet. We also learned that Jerry Herman had died.

So aside from the first and last standard filler gags we threw in, we also snuck in a few little tributes to the great man.

This year's Christmas card! Which makes the news of Jerry Herman's passing especially sad to hear.

He is one of the musical theatre's greatest composers. We saw his amazing show MAME @hopemilltheatre this year and adored it (that's where the above is quoted from). And next year we have Hello Dolly to look forward to. Very sad news, but his music will live on forever #hellodolly #lacageauxfolles #mackandmabel #MAME #jerryherman #angelalansbury #carolchanning #broadwaylegend #broadway #broadwaymusicals #musicals #ripjerryherman #musicaltheatre #legend #lgbticon

Rest in Peace to the Legendary composer and lyricist, Jerry Herman! He was 88 years old.

Whenever someone says “I don’t like musicals,” I first roll my eyes as far back into my skull as humanly possible and then run a list of musicals I suspect everyone likes, and they always agree to liking more than a few. But Jerry Herman’s musicals are for true musical lovers only. They are simultaneously over-the-top, yet simple song-and-dance numbers with extremely catchy lyrics and chorus lines. If you don’t love Jerry Herman musicals, you’re probably homophobic, too-cool-for-school, unimaginative, boring, or a combination of any and all of the above. Rest In Peace Queen! I hope you’re playing that grand piano at the Pines in the Sky!! ❤️❤️❤️ ⁣

-
Open a new window,
Open a new door,
Travel a new highway,

That's never been tried before;
Before you find you're a dull fellow,
Punching the same clock,
Walking the same tight rope
As everyone on the block.
The fellow you ought to be is three dimensional,
Soaking up life down to your toes,
Whenever they say you're slightly unconventional,
Just put your thumb up to your nose.
And show 'em how to dance to a new rhythm,
Whistle a new song,
Toast with a new vintage,
The fizz doesn't fizz too long.
There's only one way to make the bubbles stay,
Simply travel a new high way,
Dance to a new rhythm,
Open a new window ev'ry day!
************************************* Lyrics to live by. Thank you Jerry.

Deeply saddened to hear today that a personal hero of mine #JerryHerman has passed away.

Here are some of my most treasured items associated with the man himself. Special attention should be paid to an autographed copy of his autobiography, Showtune and perhaps most special to me, an autographed record of Dear World by the composer and it’s star, Angela Lansbury.

Remembering Jerry Herman, the Broadway composer who has passed away age 88. Herman was a Tony winner for HELLO, DOLLY! and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, although he cited MAME as his personal favourite show: “every line of dialogue, every costume, every orchestration, and every song is right.” Though Mr. Herman was known as one of the greatest piano players in the theatre, he technically did not read music. He could write out a melody line with chords (a “lead sheet”) but never transcribed his piano accompaniment. Yet his gift for melody was unparalleled, and he wrote five of the songs for HELLO, DOLLY! in a single weekend - “Call On Dolly”, “I Put My Hand In”, “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Dancing” and a song for Irene Molloy. With the exception of the latter (replaced afterwards by “Ribbons Down My Back”) every song appeared in the show exactly as written that weekend. Herman’s only score not to be preserved on a cast album was his 1961 Off-Broadway musical MADAME APHRODITE, which ran for a mere 13 performances. The show, about a woman who creates a phony beauty cream to disfigure her vain enemies, has never been performed since. Yet with a West End revival of HELLO, DOLLY! opening in 2020, we can be sure that the songs of Jerry Herman will “never go away again”.

“We’ll be here tomorrow simply going on.” Rest In Peace, sweet Jerry. You will be missed 🎹❤️

Happy theatre nerd this Christmas! 🎭🗽NYC trip set for February and the best hubby ever aka @jwxian made sure I get to see two productions that I am so excited about!

#mackandmabel @nycitycenter @beetlejuicebway @kerrybutler1

Can you believe that in ten days we'll be in the twenties? What will the new decade bring?

One thing it will be bringing is our two 2020 shows - spookily both of which are set in the 1920s! First up in January is Mack & Mabel, the true story of Director Mack Sennett, legendary film star Mabel Normand and the glamour and glitz of the silent film era. This is then followed by our April production of Chicago, the story of those merry murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly. Both shows will be performed at @lborotownhall and tickets can be obtained from their box office. #mackandmabel #chicago #chicagomusical #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #broadway #broadwaymusical #twenties #theroaringtwenties #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #lboro #lborofamily #loveloughborough #localperformer #localperformers #localtalent #amdram #amateurtheatre #supportlocal #CTCfifty

Loved recording with @renosweenytodd this week!! 🤩 She is a brilliant singer and collaborator.

And, she graduated from @molloycollege last year, so we JUST missed working with each other by a few months. 😵
Song: Time Heals Everything
Show: Mack and Mabel
Written by: Jerry Herman
Difficulty Level: Difficult!! Our total cut of this song was 1:44, too long for one segment on the ‘gram. 😝 @officialbernadettepeters has made this song iconic, and it’s always tough to personalize such an iconic piece. Sarah does though, and she navigates the end so well too, especially considering we recorded several pieces for a straight hour with no breaks. Fun fact: we were assigned the “Juliet” room to record in, and we laid down this track right after running into one of my ex-boyfriends singing in the “Romeo” room. 🤣 Life is never dull in the big city!! 🏙🎶

Time for another #funfactfriday - we're loving researching all of the real life characters found in our next production; Mack & Mabel.

One such character is William Desmond Taylor.

William Desmond Taylor was an Anglo-Irish-American director and actor. A popular figure in the growing Hollywood motion picture colony of the 1910s and early 1920s, he directed 59 silent films between 1914 and 1922.

According to reports, William Desmond Taylor was madly in love with Mabel Normand, who had approached him to help her with her cocaine addiction. In fact, Normand was the last person to see Taylor before his murder.

On the night of the murder, Normand claimed to have left Taylor's bungalow at 7:45 pm in a happy mood, carrying a book he had lent her. She and Taylor blew kisses to each other as her limousine drove her away. Normand was the last person known to have seen Taylor alive, and the Los Angeles Police Department subjected her to a grueling interrogation, but ruled her out as a suspect. Most subsequent writers have done the same. However, Normand's career had already slowed, and her reputation was tarnished by revelations of her addiction, which was seen as a moral failing. According to George Hopkins, who sat next to her at Taylor's funeral, Normand wept inconsolably throughout the ceremony. #funfact #friday #friyay #mackandmabel #macksennett #mabelnormand #williamdesmondtaylor #scandal #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman #broadway #broadwaymusical

Following the news that the fantastic Imelda Staunton will be taking on the role of Dolly Levi in @hellodollyldn - we thought we'd have a #throwbackthursday to our very own 2009 production!

Hello Dolly! was of course composed by the amazing Jerry Herman who also composed our current show; Mack & Mabel! #hellodolly #mackandmabel #jerryherman #jerryhermanmusical #broadway #broadwaymusical #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #imeldastaunton #westend #westendmusical #londonswestend #dollylevi #mabelnormand #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #throwbackthursdays #throwback #throwitback #vintagectc #memories #CTCfifty #ctcpresents

Doing something called the 10 day performer/artist challenge on Facebook.

I really didn’t want to do it. Like so many performers, I always feel nothing’s good enough, worry about the parts I didn’t get but this wall of roles from 1989 to 2019 makes me feel proud! I must still be a working actress.. right?!! #actorslife🎬 #musicaltheatre #bestactressnominee #meandmygirl #southpacific #sweeneytodd #sunsetboulevard #onewomanplay #thedarkatthetopofthestairs #mackandmabel #ballroom #shirleymander #youthoughtiwasdeaddidntyou

I’m in Great Britain this week, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t post @pipergilles and @pauldpoirier’s Rhythm Dance to ‘Mack and Mabel’!

We filmed this way back before they debuted their routines at Autumn Classic (so, early September). The process that goes into incepting, developing, and evolving routines over a season (or a career) is something we rarely get to see or understand. I hope I can bring more of this process to light next season, and *especially* the season after that! 😉
❄️
Also, this video made me realize that I’ve filmed 8 of 12 ice dancers, and 2 each from the Mens, Ladies, and Pairs disciplines at the Grand Prix Final this week… 🤯 I hope my videos can show firsthand all the effort and work that every skater at the #GPFinal puts into their sport. These skaters are all second to none, so at competitions I leave the judging to the judges. I just hope everyone skates clean… and occasionally gives the performance of their life! (That said, if you absolutely love the numbers game of predicting scores and tracking personal bests, you rock too!)

It's time for another #funfactfriday - earlier this week we introduced you to Ollie who is playing Frank in Mack & Mabel.

The role of Frank is based on Frank Capra, who worked as a writer for Sennett Studios before leaving to direct feature films.

Did you know that Frank Capra is probably most famous for It's a Wonderful Life, the1946 American Christmas fantasy film? The film is one of the most beloved in American cinema, and has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season. Who will be watching it this Christmas? #frankcapra #itsawonderfullife #christmas #christmasmovies #christmasmovie #macksennett #mackandmabel #funfact #fact #movietrivia #fridays #friyay #theweekendstartshere

Time for another #throwbackthursday - this week we introduced you to Ollie who is playing the role of Frank in our next production; Mack & Mabel.

Here's a #throwback to January this year when Ollie played the role of Roger opposite Hannah in the role of Jan. Who saw our production of Grease? You may have seen a lot more of Ollie than you were expecting 🤣 #mooning #CTCfifty #ctcfamily #ctc #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #grease #greasemusical #greasethemusical #youretheonethatiwant #hopelesslydevotedtoyou #wegotogether #summernights #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #mackandmabel

Tonight we're running Act Two! We will be running the full show in a couple of rehearsals time before we break for Christmas!

This show is going to be sensational! Make sure you have your tickets, or even better still why not treat friends and family to a night at the theatre for a special Christmas present? Tickets available through @lborotownhall #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #mackandmabel #CTCfifty #ctcpresents #christmasgift #supportlocal #localperformers #localtalent #localtheatre

Another weekend is over so time for another #MeetTheCastMonday to start the week off in style.


This week we're introducing you to Ollie who is playing Frank. Based on the real life Frank Capra, the Italian film director, producer and writer who became the creative force behind some of the major award-winning films of the 1930s and 1940s. Born in Italy and raised in Los Angeles from the age of five, Frank Capra's rags-to-riches story has led film historians to consider him the "American Dream personified." At the beginning of his career, Frank Capra worked for Mack Sennett as a writer but eventually left Sennett Studios to make longer, feature-length movies. Frank Capra went on to be one of the most successful directors and producers of his time.
Recently our audiences may have seen Ollie play Roger in Grease. Come and see Ollie play Frank in Mack & Mabel at @lborotownhall from 28th January 2020. #macksennett #mackandmabel #mabelnormand #frankcapra #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #broadwaymusical #localperformer #localtheatre #localtalent #leicestershire #leicester #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #loughborough #loughboroughtownhall #shepshed #coalville #hathern #belton #rothley #quorn #sileby #mountsorrel #rothley #barrowuponsoar #loveloughborough #lboro #lborofamily

Hoorah it's Friday so time for another #funfact.

Many elements of Mack Sennett's movies have become iconic today, but did you know that one of these iconic elements was actually all thanks to Mabel Normand? The famous pie in the face can be credited to Mabel herself, she was even the first person to throw one. In Tomboy Bessie (1912), Normand became (arguably) the first star to use the screen aside as a comic device, breaking the fourth wall to confide in the audience – a technique that became her trademark. The following year, she had the bright, and then novel, idea of spicing up a scene by chucking a custard pie. “A million laughs hung on her aim as the custard wobbled in a true curve and splashed with a dull explosion,” said Sennett. The target was hit, the impact enormous, and the lobbing of baked goods became a Keystone speciality. Ballistic-filled tarts were developed for the perfect “splurch." Why not come and see if CTC get that perfect splurch this January in our production of Mack & Mabel, the show even contains a pie fight recreating those Sennett movies! #pieintheface #mabelnormand #macksennett #mackandmabel #friday #funfact #friyay #movietrivia #moviesweremovies #iwontsendroses #tapyourtroublesaway #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman

With only 9 weeks left until we open our production of Mack & Mabel we thought it a good time to bring back our #MeetTheCastMonday feature.

Over the coming weeks we'll be introducing you to some of our members, the roles they are playing, and in some cases the real life character who inspired their role.

This week we're introducing you to Craig who is playing Andy. Andy is the key grip working at Sennett studios and part of the Sennett family. Grips are technicians in the filmmaking industry whose job is to work closely with the camera department to provide camera support, and to work closely with the electrical department to create lighting set-ups necessary for a shot under the direction of the director of photography.

Recently our audiences may have seen Craig play Teen Angel in Grease and Felicia in Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Come and see Craig play Andy in Mack & Mabel at @lborotownhall from 28th January 2020. #mackandmabel #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #lboro #lborofamily #leicestershire #leicester #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #nottingham #coalville #shepshed #hathern #quorn #rothley #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #macksennett #mabelnormand #localperformer #localtalent #localtheatre #supportlocal

It's Friday so it's time for another #funfactfriday - this weeks #funfact is about the iconic and legendary Keystone Cops who feature in our next production; Mack & Mabel.



The Keystone Cops (often spelled "Keystone Kops") were fictional, humorously incompetent policemen, featured in silent film slapstick comedies produced by Mack Sennett for his Keystone Film Company between 1912 and 1917.

As early as 1914, Sennett shifted the Keystone Cops from starring roles to background ensemble, in support of comedians like Charlie Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle. The Keystone Cops served as supporting players for Marie Dressler, Mabel Normand, and Charlie Chaplin in the first full-length Sennett comedy feature, Tillie's Punctured Romance (1914), as well as in Mabel's New Hero (1913) with Mabel Normand and Fatty Arbuckle.

Come and see what our very own Keystone Cops get up to this January at @lborotownhall #macksennett #mackandmabel #mabelnormand #charliechaplin #keystonecops #keystonekops #silentmovie #hollywood #movies #moviesweremovies #tapyourtroublesaway #hitemonthehead #timehealseverything #iwontsendroses #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman #musicaltheatre #musicalcomedy #theatre #theatrelife

The moment I fell in love with @michaelfeinsteinsings.

The 1993 concert for Jerry Herman where he performed “I Won’t Send Roses” from Mack & Mabel. I seriously burst into tears as he hit the final note. Sheer perfection!

Sometimes when you work towards something for long enough, and you just refuse to give up however impossible it seems, eventually Fate stands aside and says, “OK, I give in.

It’s yours. On you go.”⁣

This glitzy, tap extravaganza introduces audiences to the era in which the silent movies were being replaced with the talkies - and if they could speak, they could sing, and if they could sing then they could dance! #macksennett #mabelnormand #mackandmabel #musicaltheatre #rehearsal #dancers #dancing #localperformers #localtalent #loughboroughtownhall #CTCfifty

Whose for another #funfactfriday ?

Its always interesting when putting on a show based on real life people, and we've loved researching Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand for our next production coming to @lborotownhall in January. Did you know that both Mack and Mabel appeared as characters in the amazing @itv series Mr Selfridge? Hollywood royalty made a splash in Season 2, episode 7, as Keystone Studios head Mack Sennett (Joseph Beattie), silent film star Mabel Normand (Andrea Deck), and a bevy of Sennett bathing beauties visited the famous store for a shopping spree. Was anyone else a fan of this brilliant TV show? #mrselfridge #macksennett #mabelnormand #mackandmabel #funfactfridays #funfact #fridays #friday #friyay #theweekendstartshere #musicaltheatre #musical #bathingbeauties #broadway #broadwaymusical #jerryherman #jerryhermanmusical

Hooray for the weekend and for another #funfactfriday - did any of our lovely followers see the

2015 @chichesterft production of Mack and Mabel starring @mrmichaelball and the FAB-U-LOUS @annajanecasey13 ?

Another Friday so another #funfact - last week in rehearsals we set Hundreds of Girls, the end of Act One number that features Mack Sennett's famous Bathing Beauties.

Sennett's Bathing Beauties were a bevy of women performing in bathing costumes assembled by film producer Mack Sennett. They appeared in comedy short subjects, in promotional material, and in promotional events such as Venice Beach beauty contests from 1915 - 1928. Two Bathing Beauties who went on to reach stardom were Gloria Swanson and of course Mabel Normand. Come and see CTC's own Bathing Beauties In Mack and Mabel at @lborotownhall In January 2020. #macksennett #mackandmabel #bathingbeauties #hundredsofgirls #mabelnormand #musicaltheatre #musicaltheatrefacts #funfactfriday #funfactfridays #friyay #weekend #rehearsal #localperformers #localtalent #loughborough #leicestershire #leicester #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #nottingham #hathern #coalville #shepshed #loughboroughtownhall #lboro #lborofamily #loveloughborough

Never been prouder to work with @pipergilles @pauldpoirier @cjlane57 @jurisraz than I am tonight.

First Grand Prix win ever for #TeamTSMG. Guys, that was the best I've EVER seen you skate, in both programs. I'd have a lump in my throat anyway because that free dance is an emotional howitzer, but the fact that those are my music programs, which I put my heart and soul into, and they're being used as a basis for something so magical... well, that's my own personal gold medal. (Scout gold, obvs.) Thank you so, so much. 💛💛💛💛🥇🥇🏆

Thanks @jmcwmusic and @famesproject for giving the music all its extra emotional firepower.

Time for another Mack & Mabel themed #funfactfriday - did you know that whilst not featured as a

character in Mack & Mabel, the iconic Charlie Chaplin was also part of Mack Sennett's movies and starred in a number of films opposite Mabel Normand. Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin (16 April 1889 – 25 December 1977) was an English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the era of silent film. He became a worldwide icon through his screen persona, "The Tramp", and is considered one of the most important figures in the history of the film industry. Chaplin began performing at an early age, touring music halls and later working as a stage actor and comedian. At 19, he was signed to the prestigious Fred Karno company, which took him to America. He was scouted for the film industry and began appearing in 1914 for Keystone Studios, the studio was founded by Mack Sennett with backing from Mr. Baumann and Mr. Kessell. And the rest, as they say, is history, Chaplin went on to be one of the most recognisable actors and celebrities in the history of film. #charliechaplin

Opening night was a great success ⭐⭐

So much lovely feedback from audience members and some are even coming again!!

It costs us about £30k to put on a production of this size... the last 2 productions have been a complete sell out... and we are proud of what we achieve ❤ A few more bums on seats over the next few nights would be fantastic!

Tonight we started setting our Act One finale - Hundreds of Girls.

Based on Mack Sennett's famous Bathing Beauties - this number is a high energy showstopper that features Lottie played by Anja Palmer alongside our fantastic female Ensemble! Come and catch CTC's very own troupe of Bathing Beauties at @lborotownhall from the 28th Jan to the 1st Feb 2020. Tickets available now. #macksennett #mackandmabel #bathingbeauties #dancing #dancers #dance #dancer #rehearsal #loughboroughtownhall #lborotownhall #loughborough #lboro #lborofamily #loveloughborough #jerryherman #musicaltheatre #shepshed #coalville #leicestershire #leicester #eastmidlands #eastmidlandstheatre #localperformers #localtalent #localtheatre #supportlocal

The sun is shining, it's nearly time for the weekend, so time for another #funfactfriday - In 1981 Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean brought the music of Mack & Mabel to audiences worldwide.


Ice Dance at that time comprised three sections: Compulsory Dances, Original Set Pattern Dance and the Free Dance.  For the Free Dance, you were ‘free’ to use any music of your choosing as long as there were no vocals and it was no longer than 4 minutes 10 seconds. Most ice dancers chose a medley of music, edited together, featuring different tempos to show off their skills. Jayne and Chris had always followed this style of presentation but yearned for more ways to express themselves.
After much deliberation and consultation, they opted for the Overture from the stage musical, Mack & Mabel, as their Free Dance. It would be the first time a single piece of music had been used to tell a complete story.

They triumphed at the British Championships and to complete a perfect year, they went to Buckingham Palace to be awarded an MBE by HRH Queen Elizabeth. They were also named ‘Team of the Year’ by BBC Television.

We're sure you'll all agree that Jerry Herman's music for Mack & Mabel is just stunning. So come and see our 19 piece orchestra and fabulous cast do it justice at @lborotownhall this January. #mackandmabel #torvillanddean #dancingonice #iceskating #figureskating #overture #musicaltheatre #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #lboro #lborofamily #loveloughborough #shepshed #coalville #hathern #leicestershire #leicester #nottingham #derby #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #hathern #quorn #rothley #broadway #funfactfridays #funfact #friyay

Time for a #funfactfriday - did you know that the 1995 West End production actually started its life here in Leicester?

The production that opened at the Piccadilly Theatre starred the AMAZING @carolineoconnorofficially as Mabel Normand, and was first performed at @leicester_ht Directed by Paul Kerryson the production also featured Howard McGillin as Mack and Kathryn Evans as Lottie. A 14 year old Michael saw the production, has been a fan of the show and Caroline O'connor ever since, and now has the pleasure of choreographing CTCs very own production. #mackandmabel #macksennett #mabelnormand #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman #leicester #leicesterHaymarket #carolineoconnor #musicaltheatre #musicaltheatredivas #musicaltheatrediva #vintage #friyay #westend #westendmusical #westendtheatre #ctcpresents #funfactfridays #funfact #musicaltheatrefacts #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #lboro #lborofamily

A brilliant night's rehearsal - first we set the Orchid Room dancers and then we set the fantastic Act One number - Wherever He Ain't!

The show is looking fantastic, it really does have it all; a fantastic true story, the glitz and glamour of 1920s Hollywood, tap dancing, slapstick, drama, comedy, amazing songs, and fabulous sets and costumes.

Today in Broadway History: “Mack and Mabel” opened in 1974 at the Majestic Theatre.

Produced by David Merrick, it had its pre-Broadway tryouts earlier that summer in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. It ended up playing only 66 performances and 6 previews on Broadway.
.
The plot revolves around the ill-fated love affair between Hollywood director Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand, who became one of his biggest stars. The book was by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. It was directed and choreographed by Gower Champion.
.
.
Robert Preston starred as Mack Sennett and Bernadette Peters as Mabel Normand. Also featured in the cast were Lisa Kirk as Lottie Ames and James Mitchell as William Desmond Taylor.
.
.
Mack and Mabel” was nominated for eight Tony Awards, but did not win any.

Wow - what a busy week here at CTC, with rehearsals for Mack & Mabel & auditions for our next show; Chicago!

Thank goodness it's the weekend & time for another #funfactfriday - today's fun facts are about Mabel Normand, the title character in Mack & Mabel who will be played by the talented @holly_bean617 Mabel Normand was an American silent-film actress, screenwriter, director, and producer. She was a popular star and collaborator of Mack Sennett in his Keystone Studios films, and at the height of her career in the late 1910s and early 1920s, had her own movie studio and production company. Onscreen, she appeared in 12 successful films with Charlie Chaplin and 17 with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, sometimes writing and directing (or co-writing/directing) movies featuring Chaplin as her leading man.

Here at CTC we are HUGE fans of @officialbernadettepeters so our #funfactfriday this week is an ode to Ms Peters, who, if you didn't know, originated the role of Mabel Normand in 1974.

Here she is singing Time Heals Everything, one of the many gorgeous Jerry Herman songs found in Mack and Mabel. 😍 #yasqueen #belter #broadwaydiva #broadwaystar #funfactfridays #fact #broadwaytrivia #trivia #friday #friyay #fridayfeeling #fridaymood #mackandmabel #macksennett #mabelnormand #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #lborofamily #lboro #timehealseverything #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman #broadway #broadwaymusical

What a fantastic rehearsal. Tonight we staged the big company number: Big Time.

Followed by a run of the first half of Act One, and only 4 weeks in to rehearsals. The show is looking and sounding amazing so grab your tickets from @lborotownhall #ctcpresents #CTCfifty #loughboroughtownhall #lborotownhall #mackandmabel #macksennett #mabelnormand #iwontsendroses #moviesweremovies #loughborough #lborofamily #lboro #coalville #shepshed #hathern #nottingham #derby #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #theatre #localtheatre #localperformer #localperformers #localtalent

Tonight it's a principal rehearsal. Currently we have our Mack (Gareth) and Mabel (Holly) rehearsing the train scene in Act One.

It's in this scene that the song 'I Wont Send Roses' features. This song has to be one Jerry Herman's best? So romantic and so heartbreaking at the same time. #mackandmabel #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman #broadway #broadwaymusical #iwontsendroses #macksennett #mabelnormand #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #leicestershire #leicester #nottingham #shepshed #coalville #hathern #quorn #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #rehearsal #localperformer #localperformers #localtalent #localtheatre #amateurtheatre #amdram #lborofamily #lboro

Well what a fun week we've had at rehearsal this week!

Starting with a principal rehearsal ON Monday and then setting Look What Happened to Mabel on Wednesday. Check out these photos to see what did happen to Mabel in our rehearsal room. Have a lovely weekend everyone! #mackandmabel #macksennett #mabelnormand #jerryhermanmusical #jerryherman #broadway #broadwaymusical #westend #westendmusical #westendtheatre #amateurtheatre #amdram #localperformer #localperformers #localtalent #localtheatre #loughboroughtownhall #loughborough #leicester #shepshed #coalville #hathern #belton #quorn #eastmidlandstheatre #eastmidlands #nottingham #lboro #lborofamily

So whose been to see the amazing @downtonabbey_official movie? We are loving it here at CTC.

To celebrate its release, this weeks #funfactfriday is Downton themed. Did you know that Mabel Normand, the central character of our next show Mack & Mabel, was actually mentioned in an episode of Downton? Normand is mentioned during series 2 episode 1 of Downton Abbey by ambitious housemaid Ethel Parks. Daisy Mason (née Robinson), the kitchen maid, inquires what she is reading and Ethel responds, "Photoplay about Mabel Normand. She was nothing when she started, you know. Her father was a carpenter and they'd no money, and now she's a shining film star." So if you want to see the story of how Mabel Normand climed the ladder to become the star she was, book your tickets today from @lborotownhall #downton #mackandmabel #CTCfifty #ctcpresents #mabelnormand #musicaltheatre #musicaltheatrefacts #broadway #broadwaymusical #broadwaytrivia #broadwayfacts #funfactfridays #funfact #funfacts #fridays #friyay #weekendstartsnow #theweekendstartshere #loveloughborough #loughborough #loughboroughtownhall #lborofamily #lboro #lborotownhall #localtheatre #localtalent

Third week of rehearsals and tonight we set the number ‘Look What Happened To Mabel’ but we think it should be ‘look what happened to the director’ 😁.

Mack & Mabel will be performed at @lborotownhall Jan 28 to Feb 1, 2020. Link to the box office in our bio.

🎺🎺🎺 Having a bash at the Time Heals Everything from Mack and Mabel...sorry about the lag, was enjoying myself too much 😅

That's right folks, #funfactfriday is back!!! Obviously we know you've all missed our trivia nuggets starting your weekend so it's back by popular demand for our 2020 season!

So we are currently rehearsing for our January production of Mack and Mabel, and thought we'd let you know a little about the real life people portrayed in the show. Mack Sennett was a Canadian-American actor, director and producer, known as the King of Comedy. But did you know that many important actors cemented their film careers with Sennett? Including Charlie Chaplin, Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle, Gloria Swanson, Bing Crosby, W. C Fields and of course Mabel Normand. Mack Sennett will be played by the fantastic @gaztanion in our production! #funfacts #funfact #funfactfridays #trivia #musicaltheatrefacts #musicaltheatretrivia #weekend #weekendstartsnow #friyay #fridaymood #fridays #fridayfeeling #macksennett #mackandmabel #gloriaswanson #charliechaplin #bingcrosby #localperformers #localtalent #localtheatre #loughborough #lboro #lborofamily #ctcpresents

Did a cover of Time Heals Everything from Mack & Mabel, and then made a video for it using clips I've taken around the country.

Not entirely sure how to link y'all to the whole thing, but I'll put it in the comments and I guess we'll see? I dunno guys, this is new territory. I sure do hope time really does heal everything. Waiting without much patience, but with a great deal of hope.

Seven years ago today, I was playing Lottie Ames in the Southwark Playhouse production of “Mack and Mabel”..

back in 1996 I played Mabel in the West End production. Memories recounted in Life Drawing. A Life Under Lights.

I’m not particularly proud to be an American this 4th of July, but I sure am glad that I locked

myself out of my flat in Chichester four years ago while heading out to celebrate and eat burgers with @jonathanoboyle. ⁣

I had to get an extra set of keys from the theatre, and while we were there, Jonathan took me to tour our #MackandMabel set and I 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘥 to meet a very cute carpenter. My whole life took a different track after that, and I’m really thankful that it did. ⁣

Swipe right to see one of our first selfies from those days!! Just ⁣little babies 😆

Last week I got to sing a fun song at Don’t Tell Mamas. Pretty sure the mic is just a fancy prop.

A fantastic Musical Theatre lesson on Saturday! Learning original choreography from the Mack and Mabel UK Tour from the amazing Emily Shaw who was in this production!

Our students are so lucky to learn from the best on a weekly basis! @emilylouise_shaw #lucky #dancers #triplethreat #musicaltheatre #mackandmabel #vaalltheway🌟🌟🌟💕💕

"76 TROMBONES": On this day in 1918, Robert Preston - star of THE MUSIC MAN - was born.

A popular actor in Hollywood but never a top star, Bette David considered Preston "the most under rated actor" in movies. But in 1957 he found the role of a lifetime in Broadway smash hit THE MUSIC MAN. Preston reprised his role for the 1962 movie version, even though studio bosses first approached Cary Grant, who apparently said "Not only will I not do it, but if Robert Preston doesn't play the role I won't even go and see it!" (However, this apocryphal story has also been attributed to Grant in praise of Rex Harrison when Grant was approached to play the role of Henry Higgins in the film of MY FAIR LADY). Preston continued to appear in Broadway musicals including I DO! I DO! and MACK AND MABEL, achieving a last hurrah in movies just a few years prior to his death with an Oscar Nominated turn in VICTOR/VICTORIA (1981)

Positive Post - 7th June 2019. Had a great singing lesson today preparing for my recital in September.

Here is a clip of me singing Time Heals Everything from Mack and Mabel at Jubilate - A Concert for Kaye a couple of weeks ago. #singing #singer #soprano #timehealseverything #mackandmabel #jubilateaconcertforkaye #charityconcert #sing #lovetosing #performer #musicaltheatre #singingconcert

#tbt to when I got to work with composer/lyricist, Jerry Herman.

I was in Barrington Stage Company's musical, "Mack & Mabel" which was hoped to be revived on Bway. To say that he invigorated our approach to singing his songs was an understatement. Plus, he was so kind & generous & naturally, lit up when he heard us sing the songs he wrote. #musicaltheatre #musical #mackandmabel #jerryherman #theatre #nofilter #barringtonstagecompany #massachusetts #newengland #summertheatre #pinchmyself #sing #singoutlouise #composer #singing #workisntwork #dowhatyoulove #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo #goblingorgohome #broadway #prebroadway

Our audience came to play (and slay) last weekend! In this game, we offered three points to any team that could jump in and finish the lyric in a series of songs mentioning spring or summer.

With this much knowledge and talent, we are a little worried about our job security. Also, special shout out to the ‘the earth will wave with corn’ guy. (The rest of the audience did a great job drinking every time they heard a seasonal word, so really, everybody won). #boozybroadway #musicaltheater #drinkinggames #singinggame #finishthelyric #deepcuts #mackandmabel #timehealseverything #springawakening #theearthwillwavewithcorn #notthefirsttousethathashtag #thelastfiveyears #summerinohio

Last night was magical. Performing with @realpaigedavis @kathynajimy are the kind of moments when it really sinks in that I’m living my dreams.


Paige radiates light and joy and sang the house down, and Kathy is kind, generous and one of the funniest people I’ve ever encountered.
Thx @theamericanpops for an unforgettable experience.

✨ I remember when I was little, being asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, and my answer was always to be an actress. Not much has changed.✨

Positive Post - 27th March 2019. Today is World Theatre Day.

I have been incredibly lucky to have had the chance over the years to perform in lots of incredible shows and plays and in some outstanding theatres and venues. My theatre highlight was playing Mabel in Mack and Mabel & my favourite experience was having the chance to perform to royalty and celebrities at the London Palladium & with celebrities on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. I have made some of the bestest friends I could ask for through Theatre and most of all I met my incredible boyfriend Mike. Theatre will always be a massive love of mine & I look forward to more theatre opportunities and experiences to come 🎭 #worldtheatreday #performer #theatre #mackandmabel #hellodolly #alloallo #forbiddenbroadway #titanicthemusical #royalalberthall #londonpalladium #positivity #positive2019

I know it‘s a little bit late but❤️❤️Happy Birthday to the one and only Bernadette Peters!

You’re one of the best things that have ever happened to the world. Your existence makes my life brighter and happier. I adore you and admire you. Hope everyday in your life is full of joy and wonder, and dogs.
I made a clip to celebrate her birthday, since I never edited any video before, it seems like kind of childish and crude. I uploaded the whole thing to YouTube.
Hope you like it.

Well, hello, Bernie

"SOME OF US DON'T LIKE THE WAY YOU'VE BEEN TELLING IT":

Happy to 71st birthday to Bernadette Peters, the two time (and honorary) Tony Award winner best known for her appearances in musicals such as SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, INTO THE WOODS, SONG AND DANCE and MACK AND MABEL. First appearing on stage as a child in a tour of GYPSY, she came to prominence in the off Broadway musical DAMES AT SEA. In Hollywood she earned plaudits for her appearances in Mel Brooks' SILENT MOVIE (1976) and opposite her then offscreen romantic partner Steve Martin in THE JERK (1979) and PENNIES FROM HEAVEN (1981), for which she won the Golden Globe. Most recently she completed a run in HELLO, DOLLY! back on Broadway. "Promise you'll never go away again .."

Today in Broadway history:
.
.
“Jerry’s Girls” opened in 1985 at the St.

James Theatre, where it played 141 performances.
.
.
The show, which started as a nightclub act, was a musical revue based on the songs of composer/lyricist Jerry Herman. Before landing on Broadway, the revue was expanded into a full production that toured (with Carol Channing).
.
.
Songs featured were from musicals such as “Hello, Dolly!,” “Mack and Mabel,” “Mame,” “Milk and Honey,” “La Cage aux Folles,” “ A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine,” and “ Dear World.” Director Larry Alford conceived the piece with Herman, and helmed the Broadway production. Wayne Cilento handled the choreography.
.
.
“Jerry’s Girls” starred Leslie Uggams, Chita Rivera, and Dorothy Loudon-- backed by an all-female chorus.
.
.
Chita Rivera received the sole Tony nomination as Best Actress in a Musical.

Window card for the unsuccessful 1974 Broadway musical “Mack & Mabel.” Produced by David Merrick,

the show featured a superlative creative team including book by Michael Stewart, score by Jerry Herman, and direction/choreography by Gower Champion. Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters starred as the titular pair. The reviews were generally disappointing (although the score did receive some praise) and poor “Mack & Mabel” closed after just 66 performances. The show received 8 Tony nominations but won none of them. Sadly, Herman’s delightful score was completely snubbed and not even nominated. “The Wiz” was the big musical winner that season and bested “Mack & Mabel” in 5 categories including Best Musical, Direction, and Choreography. #mackandmabel #jerryherman #michaelstewart #robertpreston #bernadettepeters #broadwaymusicals #broadwayflops #broadwaywindowcard #broadwayposters #showart #majestictheatre

More guidance from other realms for my #graphicmemoir.

I portrayed the silent movie star #mabelnormand in the musical #mackandmabel many years ago. Her nephew gave me one of her bookplates... a reminder that she was a wonderful woman with an agile mind who not only starred in movies but made them!! I found this keepsake in the loft.. or did it find me?! #actorslife🎬 #broadwaymusical #silentmovies #silentmoviestar #lifedrawingalifeunderlights

"Up to now I never really knew that I could be so ambitious!"

At this point of my training at @lcmlive my tutor assigned me "Look what happened to Mabel" from #mackandmabel by #herman which is about Mabel's transformation from being a waitress to being a famous actress. To play at the best this role I imagined how I would react if this would happen to me. I am working for @pretamangeruk at the moment, and let's face it: who did not start from this point?!
We never know, everything can happen!
It was a pleasure to be Mabel for 2 weeks!

One year ago ‘Mack and Mabel’ opened.

It was such an amazing show to work on with such an incredible cast and crew and I miss it dearly 🎭✨ #mackandmabel #oneyearlater #lipa #graduate #lightingdesigner #avdesigner

The weather, being still slightly sick, still not knowing how to properly end a video in selfie

mode (I see you ending look), procrastinating on cleaning the house and other things, life in general....this calls for some Mack and Mabel realness #mackandmabel #jerryherman #timehealseverything #actor #singer

So this week I was able to record something for you guys.

It’s just a first attempt to this song that I’ll be singing this year at Iab. I’m not a pianist, and there’s not much acting going on, it was really one of the first times singing this and hopefully later on I can record it again so you can see the differences

“Time Heals Everything”, Mack & Mabel 💗

Yay, I finished this quilt just in time for the christening of the recipient!

I completely underestimated how much time quilting would take. But I got it done and I'm so happy with it.
The fabric is from @lewisandirenefabrics and the pattern was originally from @mackandmabel but I altered it slightly. [Werbung unbeauftragt / ad]

Feeling spectacularly crafty today. ✂️
1.Started a dress (ran out of elastic band for the back; JoAnns trip tomorrow!)

2.Started sewing together jelly rolls to create the "Picnic in the Park" by @MackandMabel
3.Sewed this zipper on my Dragon Maid costume.
Doesn't seem like much, but this fabric and these projects have sat around a year or more... PROGRESS.

Today's #sundayserenade is brought to you by one of my favorite records, the Original 1974 Broadway Cast of Mack and Mabel, starring the incomparable Bernadette Peters and Robert Preston.

Music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. Most of you know how much I adore the era of silent films and how much I love the work of Mack Sennett! here's hoping I can portray Mabel one day!

Got back from Wicked tonight (the 20 minuets we got to see were absolutely amazing) and went to put my programme away with my others, when I realised.

Happy 2nd birthday Mack!
You are such a funny, strong and confident little girl.

You make your Uncle Nolan and Auntie Sneeta laugh every time we see you. We're so happy that Mabel has you to show her how to love gently and live fast!

Next up had to be my all time favorite person of ALL TIME💕💕 I couldn’t pick one role so I decided to just to a portrait of her.


Not entirely happy but hey, next time I’ll do better!
Not sure who I’ll do next! Thinking maybe Eliza or Angelica from Hamilton,

My anthem for 2018. The year of no (reduced?) male distractions.

“I gotta give my life some sparkle and fizz. And think a thought that isn’t wrapped up in his.” #showtunes #whereverheaint #mackandmabel #bernadettepeters

“She was plain little Nellie, the kid from the deli.

But Mother of God, look what happened to Mabel!” A rare window card from the original 1974 production of Mack & Mabel starring Bernadette Peters and Robert Preston. #mackandmabel #jerryherman #bernadettepeters #robertpreston #broadwayposters #windowcards #showart #broadway

Before the curtain rises, before the Male believe begins. The lonely wait of the actor.

Tougher because of his unique entrance through the loading door!

Never thought I’d see my name next to the word Banjo.

It really should be Banjo/Guitar since I play banjo on 90% of the show. Last show starting in 5, been a great run!

Today in Broadway History: “Mack and Mabel” opened in 1974 at the Majestic Theatre.

Produced by David Merrick, it had its pre-Broadway tryouts earlier that summer in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. It ended up playing only 66 performances and 6 previews on Broadway.
.
The plot revolves around the ill-fated love affair between Hollywood director Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand, who became one of his biggest stars. The book was by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. It was directed and choreographed by Gower Champion.
.
Robert Preston starred as Mack Sennett and Bernadette Peters as Mabel Normand. Also featured in the cast were Lisa Kirk as Lottie Ames and James Mitchell as William Desmond Taylor.
.
. "Mack and Mabel” was nominated for eight Tony Awards, but did not win any.
.
Herman’s songs included “Movies were Movies,” “”Look What Happened to Mabel,” “”I Won’t Send Roses,” “Wherever He Ain’t,” “Time Heals Everything,” and “Tap Your Troubles Away."

On the train up to Birmingham, still thinking about @thelmto 's phenomenal production of

#MackandMabel last night at @hackneyempire - in particular, @natashabarnesmusic 's performance of 'Time Heals Everything' that brought the house to its feet. So, I have created a black and white spread for my #bujo with a few roses and a quote from the show. Happy Sunday everyone xx

#happyaltos #mackandmabel #LMTO

Had an absolute wonderful evening with 'Mack & Mabel' @thelmto last night - such a pleasure to be a small part of it, and what a bloody wonder to hear that SCORE in its entirety.

And also to get a first hand view of the percussionists playing all the instruments and living their best lives. It was also made all the more special by sharing the stage with the #RAMfam 😍

I remember how this song helped me through my toughest time.

I remember I sang it with all my heart, hoping I will forget and let time heals everything. Just a reminder to myself that everything will be fine again if I let time heals.
.
From Mack and Mabel - Time heals everything
.
Time heals everything, Tuesday, Thursday.
Time heals everything, April, August.
If I'm patient the break will mend, and one fine morning the hurt will end.
So make the moments fly, Autumn, Winter.
I'll forget you by, Next year, Some year.
Tho' it's hell that I'm going through
Some Tuesday, Thursday, April, August, Autumn, Winter, Next year, Some year.
Time heals everything
Time heals everything
But loving you.

#lyrics "No-one pretended that what we were doing was art
We had some guts and some luck

But we were just making a buck
Movies were movies were movies... When I ran the show!" #mackandmabel #stpeterssquare #manchester #filming #onlocation #mymanchester #streetsnappers no idea what they were filming🤔

Throwback to this incredible time with this group of top notch humans.

I am just so happy I was involved. I miss you guys! It was so special! 🎬 #mackandmabel #biz #lovethem #circulia #balls #tapyourtroublesaway

Done quilting and the binding is machine sewed to the front.

Just need to hand sew the binding to the back and then I'll make a label once baby boy is born and I have details ❤️. The fabric on the back works well too I think. Oh and the pattern is "Sea Breeze" from Mack and Mabel purchased on Etsy. #babyquilt #babyboyquilt #guesshowmuchiloveyou #quilt #quilting #janome9400 #lovemysewingmachine #mackandmabelpattern #mackandmabel #seabreezequilt
