Mary Marie

Thirteen-year-old Mary Marie is bright, free-spirited, and surprisingly philosophical about her parents’ 1920’s divorce. In fact, she can hardly wait to observe and write about all the love stories and romances that must be awaiting them now that they are no longer married. But the love story that comes to pass, is one she never would have expected.

Adapted from a best-selling novel by Eleanor Porter, Mary Marie is A timeless coming of age story of one teenager with two names, trying to find her place amidst her parents’ expectations.

Mary Marie is a new musical written by Chana Wise and Carl Johnson. One of the eight shows selected for the 2014 NAMT Festival, Mary Marie was also a finalist for the 2015 Richard Rodgers Award, a finalist in the 2019 Tru Voices reading series, and is now preparing for an upcoming off-broadway production.
