Inventing Mary Martin - 2014 - Off-Broadway

$67.50

nventing Mary Martin is the World Premiere multi-media celebration of the life and career of one of Broadway’s greatest stars. Mary Martin created leading roles in One Touch of Venus, South Pacific, The Sound of Music and Peter Pan and became one of the most glamorous and beloved star of the American musical theatre, constantly reinventing herself along the way. In this "revue of a lifetime', four fabulous performers, none of whom actually plays Mary (who could?) take us on her amazing journey from naive but ambitious Texan to Hollywood star to Broadway legend. Conceived, written and co-directed by award-winning musical theatre writer Stephen Cole, with musical arrangements by Broadway and film veteran David Krane, Inventing Mary Martin shines a spotlight on the magic that is Mary Martin. Imagine Side by Side by Sondheim meets Ain’t Misbehavin' with songs by Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kurt Weill, Jule Styne, Jones and Schmidt and other musical giants of the Golden Age of Broadway; Inventing Mary Martin takes us back to a time when stopping the show with a saucy but innocent striptease in “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” could turn a novice into a legend.
