- Mack & Mabel starring Michael Ball
"Direct from its premiere at Chichester Festival Theatre, this major new production of the classic Broadway musical Mack & Mabel stars double Olivier award-winning Michael Ball as Mack Sennett.
Based on the real-life romance between Hollywood legends Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand, it tells the story of a group of pioneering filmmakers who changed the world surrounded by heroes in capes, girls tied to the tracks, glamorous Bathing Beauties and the slapstick chaos of the Keystone Kops.
Mack & Mabel features an outstanding score by Jerry Herman and is widely admired for its classic Broadway hits including I Won't Send Roses and Time Heals Everything.
In a production by a multi-award winning team, with direction by Jonathan Church and choreography by Stephen Mear, this dazzling musical comedy is both a poignant love story and a riveting tribute to the grit and glamour of the era of silent movies."
