West End legend Michael Ball will be heading the cast of the the touring production of musical Mack and Mabel when it comes to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal, from November 23-28.

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 and Mabel features an outstanding score by Jerry Herman and is widely admired for its classic Broadway hits including I Won’t Send Roses, Tap Your Troubles Away and Time Heals Everything.

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.

Starring alongside Michael Ball is Rebecca LaChance as Mabel Normand.
