About Mack and Mabel:

Follow the dramatic, romantic entanglements of silent movie pioneer Mack Sennett and his comedienne-muse Mabel Normand. Mack discovers Mabel and makes her a star. Affection grows between the two but creative differences send Mabel into the arms of another. Relive Herman’s timeless score which includes the beloved ballads, “Time Heals Everything” and “I Won’t Send Roses.”

Music & Lyrics by Jerry Herman and a Book by Michael Stewart, based on an idea by Leonard Spigelgass, revised by Francine Pascal
