    Mame

    **CANCELLED**
    "Life is a banquet."

    From the composer of Hello, Dolly! and La Cage aux Folles comes another musical about a larger-than-life personality with an insatiable appetite for living. Meet Mame Dennis, an eccentric Manhattanite whose fabulous, bohemian lifestyle is turned upside down when her orphaned nephew comes to live with her. Featuring a timeless score with hits like “Open a New Window” and “We Need a Little Christmas,” Mame is a sweet show about the importance of family and remaining true to your most essential self. With this first Twin Cities production in more than a decade, Artistry is thrilled to bring Mame back for another wild ride.  Enjoy one (or more) of the 20 performances running from April 17 through May 10.
