A show that opens with award-winning potential is a rarity, but 2nd Star Productions' Mame seemed a winner at its debut last weekend at Bowie Playhouse in Whitemarsh Park. In 1957, a script by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee brought Patrick Dennis' autobiographical novel to theater with a memorable score by Jerry Herman. They tell the story of orphaned, 10-year-old Patrick, who goes to live with his aunt after the death of his father. Auntie Mame holds parties awash in bathtub gin, savoring the Roaring Twenties in her Manhattan apartment.

In this life one can be truly in love with only a precious few significant beings at most. Don't trust me when I talk of Mehitabel; my devotion is unconditional. She is the embodiment of everything that is splendid in Holly Golightly, Zuleika Dobson, Miss Piggy, Auntie Mame - all of their indomitability, all of their confirmation of the immortality of spirit.Mehitabel was an alley cat. Perhaps she is one today. I don't know; it was almost 75 years ago when she was last reported upon by Archy , her amanuensis, and even the toughest of alley cats doesn't live forever.
