Oh, Mary! (Broadway, Lyceum Theatre, 2024) | Playbill

Oh, Mary!

One Act

Following a sold out, twice extended world premiere run at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, the hit comedy Oh, Mary! is coming to Broadway this summer. Written by and starring Cole Escola and directed by Sam Pinkleton, the New York Times Critic’s Pick will begin previews on June 26, 2024, ahead of a July 11, 2024 Opening Night; the limited 12-week engagement will run through September 15, 2024.


Oh, Mary! is a dark comedy starring Cole Escola as a miserable, suffocated Mary Todd Lincoln in the weeks leading up to Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Unrequited yearning, alcoholism and suppressed desires abound in this one act play that finally examines the forgotten life and dreams of Mrs. Lincoln through the lens of an idiot (Cole Escola).

Information is subject to change prior to opening night.

Performances are scheduled to begin June 26, 2024.

  • Running Time: 80 minutes with no intermission
