Mary & Max
– Music and Lyrics by Bobby Cronin and Crystal Skillman
– Direction by Stafford Arima
Based on the claymation film of the same name, Mary & Max comes to life through pen pal exchanges between Mary Dinkle, a chubby 10 year old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max Horowitz, an obese 44 year old Jewish man with Asperger’s Syndrome living in the chaos of New York. In this charming new musical, two people from two different worlds remind us that, even when we feel most afraid and alone, friendship can be found in the unlikeliest of places.
