Mack & Mabel
UK & Ireland Tour
Producer & General Manager
Playful Productions produced, general managed and tour booked the Chichester Festival Theatre production of Mack & Mabel on a major UK and Ireland tour. Opening at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, it then toured to Manchester, Dublin, Edinburgh, Nottingham and Cardiff, and starred 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 chaos of the Keystone Kops.
Mack & Mabel featured an outstanding score by Jerry Herman and was widely admired for its classic Broadway hits including I Won’t Send Roses and Time Heals Everything.
The production was directed by Jonathan Church and choreographed by Stephen Mear, with design by Rob Jones.
Mack & Mabel was produced by Chichester Festival Theatre and Playful Productions.
