Michael Ball to star in Mack & Mabel in Edinburgh

Direct from its premiere at Chichester Festival Theatre, a major new production of the classic Broadway musical Mack & Mabel is coming to Edinburgh in November, starring double Oliver 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 the great fun of the silent screen: heroes in capes, girls tied to the tracks, glamorous Bathing Beauties and the 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 byJonathan 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. The show received eight Tony Award nominations when it opened on Broadway in 1974.
