Dream a Little Dream: The Nearly True Story of the Mamas & the Papas will, hopefully, put to rest the urban legend about how Mama Cass Elliot died. The hefty member of the '60s chart-toppers did not choke to death on a ham sandwich. Rather, her massive size contributed to a heart attack that killed her at age 32. This musical (opening tonight at the Cleveland Play House) stars ex-Papa Denny Doherty, who co-authored the play.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: March 31. Continues through April 29
