Mary & Max, the new musical by Bobby Cronin and Crystal Skillman, will receive an invitation-only concert presentation on May 23 in New York City.

The cast will feature Lauren Elder (Hair, Side Show) as Mary, Anthony Galde (Wicked, Starlight Express) as Max, Nick Adams (currently starring in the Falsettos national tour) as Damian, Ali Baldacchino (Fun Home) as Lily/Young Mary, Lynn Craig (David Bowie’s Lazarus), Nick Martinez (Kennedy Center’s Tommy), Genesis Collado, and Barrington Lee (DCPA's Oklahoma!) as Noel/Len.

Hersh Ellis directs with music direction by Joshua Zecher-Ross.

Here’s how it’s billed: “Bullied 13-year old Lily has locked herself in her room. Her newly single father doesn't know what to do. Always a storyteller, he chooses to finally tell Lily the story of Mary and Max, a tale set in the 1970s about the seemingly random friendship between Mary Daisy Dinkle, a chubby and lonely eight-year-old with a birthmark on her forehead the color of poo who lives in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia and Max Jerry Horowitz, a 44-year-old obese New Yorker who is soon diagnosed with a newly named disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome. As penpals, they go through their highest and lowest times together, spanning twenty-plus years.”

The 65-minute concert presentation will take place May 23 at 2 PM and 7 PM. Email [email protected] to attend.
