|A mash-up of Cinderella and Pygmalion, THE THREE MARIES is narrated from a Mummer's clubhouse in South Philadelphia. The year is 1926, and Queen Marie of Romania announces a visit to the City of Philadelphia, changing the lives of one South Philadelphia family forever.|
Composer and lyricist Michael Ogborn, calls THE THREE MARIES his "love letter" to the City of Philadelphia. It lovingly pokes fun at some of Philadelphia's unique attributes - the Office of the Mayor, the Mummers, and of course, South Philly accents. The score is infused with 1920's Jazz, Vaudeville, Tin Pan Alley and the famous sound of the Mummer's string band.
The cast of THE THREE MARIES features Jeff Coon, Mary Martello,Rachel Brennan, Paul Nolan, Deirdre Finnegan, Neill Hartley, John Monforto, Josh Totora, Jenna Rogalski, and Broadway veterans Kathy Deitch (Wicked and Footloose) and Mindy Dougherty (the revival ofGypsy with Patti LuPone.)
The principals of No Attytude Productions include Philip Rosenthal (best known for Executive Producing the hit TV series Everybody Loves Raymond), Monica Horan Rosenthal (who starred in the show), Julianna Schauerman and Michael Ogborn.
From Monica Horan Rosenthal: "Michael has written a show that Philadelphia won't want to miss. Like Shear Madness in Boston orMENOPAUSE The Musical, audience members will be humming these tunes and laughing over these charming characters long after they've left the theater ... and they'll want to see it again and again."
