Alchemation and Mike & Carlee Productions announced today the limited Off-Broadway engagement of Oh, Mary!, a new and ridiculous comedy written by and starring Cole Escola (in their Off-Broadway debut)

The award-winning, viral writer and comedian known for such hits as “Search Party” and “The Other Two”. The limited eight-week engagement begins previews on Friday, January 26th, 2024 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, ahead of a February 8th opening night, with performances running through March 24th, 2024. 

Oh, Mary! is a dark comedy starring Escola as a miserable, suffocated Mary Todd Lincoln in the weeks leading up to Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Unrequited yearning, alcoholism and suppressed desires abound in this one act play that finally examines the forgotten life and dreams of Mrs. Lincoln through the lens of an idiot (Cole Escola).

Oh, Mary! is directed by Sam Pinkleton, and produced by Kevin McCollum & Lucas McMahon and Mike Lavoie & Carlee Briglia by special arrangement with the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The full creative team for the Off-Broadway production includes dots (Scenic Design), Cha See (Lighting Design), Holly Pierson (Costume Design), Daniel Kluger (Sound Design and Original Music), Drew Levy (Sound Design), and David Dabbon (Musical Arrangements). Casting by Henry Russell Bergstein, CSA. Gowns for Cole Escola by Astor Yang.

Additional casting for Oh, Mary! will be announced at a later date.
