I Wanna Make The World Laugh!
on September 18, 2016
This concert was recorded live at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on February 21, 1988 in London, England. The concert and money from sales of this CD was raised for the Royal Marsden Hospital Cancer Fund. Donald Pippin conducts the overture and orchestra. David Jacobs and Jerry Herman provide an introduction to this musical which failed on Broadway after 65 original performances but earned 8 Tony nominations for the original production. "Mack & Mabel" is a great musical like great films that are overlooked for accolades or audiences. "Mack & Mabel" came back again and this time in a concert with Broadway and West End Stars.
George Hearn and Denis Quilley play the role of Mack in their performances. There are three Mabels like Georgia Brown, Debbie Shapiro and Paige O'Hara. There are other performances like Frances Ruffelle, Stubby Kaye, the Stephen Hill Singers, and Tommy Tune as well. If you enjoyed the other "Mack & Mabel" soundtracks, you will definitely enjoy and appreciate this one.
