  1. Lorene Lorene says:

    The nicest part about reading this old play is picturing the beautiful movie that was made from it in the 40s starring Irene Dunne as Mama Love those gentle old stories

  2. Kevin Kevin says:

    In general I was impressed with the order and structure van Druten brings to Kathryn Forbes' vignettes in adapting them for the stage but was generally disappointed that the original material he adds sacrifices the simplicity and sincerity of the original with canned and cliched conventions

  3. Alyson Alyson says:

    I read this play because Casey was Mama in the Hingham High production

    I Remember Mama is a play by John Van Druten based on Kathryn Forbes' novel Mama's Bank Account It is a study of family life centered on a Norwegian immigrant family in San Francisco early in the 20th century The play premiered on Broadway on October 19 1944 at the Music Box Theatre where it ran for 713 performances; it was produced by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II The cast included Mady Christians Oscar Homolka and Joan Tetzel Marlon Brando played a minor role making his Broadway debut as Nels I know this play and later film were are regarded as the uintessential depiction of a Norwegian immigrant family but it could be any family struggling to become citizens and nurture their children The story line reminds me of O'Henry's Gift of the Magi Kristi Abby Tabby

    I hadn't read it in far too many years for me to figure out but one of the LIT group women wants to do it in September as an old fashioned play so I got a copy from the library and breezed through it in a sitting Sweet gentle and yes old fashioned Mama is a joy It's easy to get impatient with the pace the pain in the ass sisters the rather plodding language But it's also good to just go back to a very human tale set in the early 20th century in San Francisco and presented on stage in the middle of WW II Family love a daughter who pines to be a writer immigrants who have become Americans and a wonderful Mama one could do worse than spend an hour here

    We seem to be referring to different booksplays etcThe book I read was a series of essays They tended to blend together into a montage Life was NOT 'simpler' in those days but the family in uestion is a TRUE family an extended family This is at least partly because the family is one of recent immigrants But other immigrants at the time didn't retain the extended family structure Probably the basis for success of this family is that they did

  7. Agreenhouse Agreenhouse says:

    A play that reminds us of an earlier era when life was harder simpler but had the values and solidity that we yearn for today The mama in the book is similar to my mother willing to sacrifice it all for the happiness of her children A tender look at a Norwegian immigrant family in the 1910s in San Francisco

  8. Shawn Thrasher Shawn Thrasher says:

    I don't usually read plays but I saw half of the movie on TCM a few months ago I'm glad I read it it's sweetly old fashioned very funny in parts very moving in other parts I cried at one point being a big old softie I admit I read it aloud when no one was around using fake Norwegian accents although I think they were very convincing fake Norwegian accents

  9. Amanda Amanda says:

    If I read this play now I'd rate it 2 or 3 stars but I did this play in 11th grade so it gets the 11th grade rating Adam Nicholson drew a poster for the show which said I Remember Mama w gray hair and no teeth That annoyed the crap out of me

  10. Vicki Vicki says:

    Was a lovely play I loved Mama and I loved the whole family It was sweet and very interesting to see how a family lived at the turn of the 20th century I have also seen the movie and loved it just as much
