Event

MAME
Mame (Lance Moore) is a happy happening. She is well-to-do, lives in New York at the peak of the 1920's, and is surprised by a "wonderful present": an orphan nephew named Patrick (Kieran Merk) It changes her life. It brings her into sharp conflict with her best friend, Vera Charles, (Peggy Smith) a multi-martini grande dame of the legitimate theatre-for Vera can't stand children. The boy's nanny, Agnes Gooch,(Christine Riggio) doesn't approve of those irrepressible things which go on in Mame's Beekman Place apartment, and yet she inevitably falls under her spell.Eye to eye, toe to toe, Mame battles Babcock,(Arte Verbrugghe) the Babbitt-ish banker who wants to make young Patrick the prisoner of the Establishment and put the chains of conformity around him. With the balloon burst of the Depression, it looks as if Babcock is going to have his way. Mame loses all her money, and she loses jobs as quickly as she finds them. (Mame's gift is giving, not working for hire!) In a brief adventure as a sales clerk, she meets Beau-(Steve Ciapanna), a wealthy scion of the South. He takes Mame to his plantation for the begrudging approval of his mother, Mrs. Burnside (Nancy Segal). Beau proposes-in the bouncing title song which sings the praises of Mame.  Mame is Eve, St. Joan, Lady Godiva, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Bow and Florence Nightingale. She dances, too, and defies all generation gaps! We have seen many Auntie Mames and Mames: in each one there seemed to be a flash of something a bit different, in Renaissance Music Theatre Company's production you will come to find a new discovery in the way this remarkable lady thinks, feels and moves. MAME is the show we've always looked forward to seeing again!
