Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber’d here

The laces on the corsets were tightened. The dirndels were fluffed. Hair was teased. Vibrant makeup was painted on across faces. With high energy and thrilling anticipation a team of MAMA’s best promoters, whose skill sets ranged from ballet to heightened Shakespearean style acting, took to the streets of a modern New York City dressed as a stylized Elizabethan mob to promote Will on TNT. (Turner Broadcasting) In no time at all, MAMA street team transformed New York into a modern punk-rock Shakespearean stage that would make even the bard himself proud!
Our favorite time of the season has finally arrived. New marquees light up as several new Broadway shows open one by one. Audiences begin to pour into the theatres with a sense of excitement and curiosity as to what the new shows have in store for them. While opening night quickly approaches, what better way to celebrate than with your own opening night party! MAMA has you covered on what should be on the menu with cocktails inspired by the shows set to open soon on Broadway.

The 28th of January marked LUCKYRICE’s official kick off of the Chinese New Year. MAMA was honored to be asked to staff some of our gorgeous model brand ambassadors to compliment the occasion and bring the event to life! Guests prepared themselves for a night of decadence, and MAMA served as the perfect welcoming crew!
This past November undeniably shook Americans to their core. An historic president election finally concluded to reveal the 45th President of the United States would be Donald Trump. While some celebrated the win, others crumbled as they felt the onset of a world filled with hate and fear. Without a doubt this is one of the most divisive elections to date. People are still trying to grasp what exactly a Trump presidency will entail and mean for our country. So, we put some thought to what President Trump might mean for the Theatre industry.
And the verdict is in ladies and gentleman. On the charge of slaying Times Square with the old razzle dazzle, the defendant theatreMAMA is found…GUILTY! For eight years now, theatreMAMA’s Times Square Merry Murderesses have been killing it with patrons and selling tickets to see the longest running American musical on Broadway!
