Inventing Mary Martin, according to the York, is a new "multi-media musical revue celebrating the life and career of one of Broadway’s greatest stars, Mary Martin, who created leading roles in One Touch of Venus, South Pacific, The Sound of Music and Peter Pan, becoming one of the most glamorous and beloved stars of the American musical theatre. In this musical revue, four fabulous performers, none of whom actually plays Mary (who could?) take us on her amazing journey from naive but ambitious Texan to movie star to Broadway legend, reinventing herself constantly along the way."
The creative team includes James Morgan (set), Patricia McGourty (costumes), Mary Jo Dondlinger (lights), Janie Bullard (sound), Justin West (projections), James Maloof (props) and Geoff Josselson (casting). The production stage manager is Bernita Robinson with assistant stage manager Jackie Cookfair.
