Mary and Max
A New Musical

Music and Lyrics by Bobby Cronin
Book by Crystal Skillman
Based on a film by Adam Elliot
Directed by Stafford Arima

Based on an Australian claymation film about two unlikely pen pals, which screened in 2009 at the Calgary International Film Festival, Mary and Max is a hilarious and heartening tale that proves friendship can be found in the most unexpected of places. Join lonely 10-year-old Mary from Melbourne as she writes her way into the life of Max, a 44-year-old man with Asperger’s Syndrome in New York City. With quirky melodies and heartfelt dialogue, their friendship is one you’ll never forget.

I love musicals – especially original works that have never been seen before! Mary and Max is a story of unpredictable friendship, self-awareness, and happy accidents. This new musical brings a smile to my face and warms my heart.
- Stafford Arima
