Mack & Mabel music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Michael Stewart.

It is directed by John Doyle.

Out of the Silent Movie era and the heady heights of 1920s Hollywood, Mack and Mabel tells the heart-wrenching love story of two of its greatest legends; director Mack Sennett, 'The King of Comedy' and creator of the Keystone Cops, and his star, comedienne Mabel Normand. When Mabel arrives on Mack’s set she catches his eye and soon captures his heart. Before long she is starring in Sennett’s two-reelers and together they bring magic to the silver screen. Yet ambition, dalliance and the impending threat of change make for a stormy relationship. Romance turns to jealousy while stardom foreshadows scandal and heartbreak. But despite the odds, the pair can never escape their love for each other.
