Who is Mame? Some of Mame's wild, adventurous spirit is inside everyone who lives for the moment and believes that "life is a banquet!" It's the height of the 1920s and Auntie Mame becomes the guardian for her ten-year-old nephew, Patrick. Special songs include "Mame," "It's Today," "Open a New Window," "We Need a Little Christmas," and "Bosom Buddies." Mame's life is turned upside down, many of her priorities change, but she still lives life to the fullest!
