Mixing fact and fiction, with spectacular production numbers and a heady mix of romance and comedy, Mack & Mabel is the story of legendary silent movie director Mack Sennett and his leading lady Mabel Normand.
Mack churns out slapstick two-reelers from Keystone Studios, featuring the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle. But when sandwich delivery girl Mabel stumbles on set, Mack spots her potential and makes her a star. They fall in love, but unromantic Mack is obsessed with his movies, while Mabel wants more from their relationship and from her blossoming acting career.
Look out for recreations of iconic silent movie scenes featuring the Bathing Beauties and Keystone Kops, and even a custard pie fight. Mack & Mabel combines laughs, romance, action and tragedy, all topped off with the genius of Jerry Herman’s outstanding score (I Won’t Send Roses, Movies Were Movies, Tap Your Troubles Away, and more). Pure entertainment!
