Mabel Mercer's legendary work as a jazz and cabaret performer may have made her famous around the world -- influencing the work of performers like Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra -- but right now, Mabel is frightened. She's frightened that tonight's show may be her last, convinced as she is that she's too old to go on and that her longtime friend and manager can't wait to abandon her. In the world premiere of Mabel Madness, she will confront these fears, unfurling the events that led her to this moment -- including the times when her white British mother refused to acknowledge her black daughter, and the vocal mishap that fortuitously led to her signature style. Make your way to Urban Stages Theatre in New York City to watch as Mabel prepares to taker her final bow in Mabel Madness, written by and starring Tony Award winner Trezana Beverley.
