Mack and Mabel musical at Southwark Playhouse – July 5 – August 25

Mack and Mabel

From the creative team who produced last year’s critically acclaimed production of Parade is Mack and Mabel set in 1920’s Hollywood.

From the Southwark:A time when movies were silent and cinema was magic. Mack Sennett, “King of Comedy” and creator of The Keystone Cops, discovers Mabel Normand, a waitress from Brooklyn, casts her in his two-reelers and turns her into a star.

So began one of Hollywood’s most tempestuous and heart-wrenching love stories. But life isn’t like the movies – ambition, dalliance and the impending but inevitable threat of change put unbearable pressure on their relationship. Romance turns to jealousy as stardom invites scandal and deceit.

With a spectacular, soaring score including “Look What Happened To Mabel”, “I Won’t Send Roses” and “Time Heals Everything” Mack and Mabel is a beautiful, touching and ultimately heart-breaking story of two of Hollywood’s greatest icons.”
