NEW WORKS SERIES

PRE-PREMIERES OF NEW MUSICALS   *SEASON 13*

AND IT MAY OPEN A NEW MUSICAL ERA

BECAUSE WHAT IS OFFERED HERE FOR EYES, EARS & HEART 

IS A MUSICAL, BUT SO ATYPICALLY DIFFERENT,

REFRESHINGLY MODERN-- 

JUST AUTHENTIC.

-AUSTRIAN NEWSPAPER KURIER

13-year old Lily, who has recently lost her mother, locks herself in her room, refusing to tell her father what happened at school that day. On the other side of the door, Lily's Father shares the story of misfit penpals Mary and Max with her, in the hope of coaxing her out. Lily becomes drawn into the story, realizing her father has his own dark past and relationship with this story. Will he tell her the truth? And will Max’s Aspergers and Mary’s depression keep these two penpals apart forever? The writers will present two songs from the show performed remotely.

Mary and Max had its world premiere at Theatre Calgary in 2018 (winning the BroadwayWorld Award for Best Musical) and a critically-acclaimed European premiere in 2019 at Landestheater Linz, Austria. The show was also developed and featured in Pace New Musicals.
