MARY AND MAX THE MUSICAL Gets NYC Reading Featuring Alessandra Baldacchino, Anthony Galde, and More

MARY AND MAX THE MUSICAL Gets NYC Reading Featuring Alessandra Baldacchino, Anthony Galde, and MoreAfter a very successful reading this summer at the ALLIANCE THEATRE produced by Broadway Dreams Foundation, MARY & MAX will have its first 29-hour reading in New York City.

The groundbreaking musical features a book by Crystal Skillman (Geek, King Kirby) and music and lyrics by Bobby Cronin (The Concrete Jungle, W2ML), with direction by Theatre Calgary's newly appointed artistic director, Stafford Arima (Allegiance, Altar Boyz), with musical direction by Anna Ebbesen.

MARY & MAX tells the story of two people from two different worlds who remind us that, even when we feel most afraid and alone, friendship can be found in the unlikeliest of places. Set in the 1970s, it comes to life through pen pal exchanges between Mary Dinkle, a chubby birthmarked ten-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne [Australia], and Max Horovitz, a severely obese, 44-year-old Jewish man with Asperger's Syndrome living in the chaos of New York City. As they take us on their respective journeys, we learn that sometimes perfect strangers make the best of friends.

The ensemble cast features: Alessandra Baldacchino (Fun Home) as Young Mary, Anthony Galde (original casts of Wicked, Civil War, Starlight Express) as Max, Lauren Elder (Side Show, Hair) as Adult Mary, Nick Adams (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, La Cage aux Folles), Anne Brummel (Elphaba in Wicked), Danyel Fulton (Jasper in Deadland), Lynn Craig (David Bowie's Lazarus), Joe Torello, Chase Crandell, and Jackson Perrin.
