The Deal

The Three Maries

It’s a Tin Pan Alley musical that pays tribute to Queen Marie of Romania. It’s an Americanized mashup of Cinderella and Pygmalion. But above all else, it’s a love letter to Philadelphia. Taking inspiration from the Queen’s 1926 sesquicentennial-celebrating visit, The Three Maries explores the city’s eccentricities—from the Mummers to the mayor—through the fresh eyes of a foreign dignitary. One Philadelphian family finds itself closer to the Queen than most, and her visit has surprising repercussions on them that will last long after she’s returned to her country’s Dracula farms. And to prove its commitment to its time period, the whole shebang unfolds against a backdrop of 1920s jazz, vaudevillian antics, and, of course, the sound of the Mummers’ string band.

The Three Maries is the work of hometown playwright Michael Ogborn, and it’s his first thoroughly Philadelphian work since his 1981 debut, Fishwives. Growing up in the city, he had plenty of time to grasp the ineffable beauty of the Philadelphian accent, the social symphony of the bustling crowd on Two Street, and the allure of the iconic mating call, “a coke and hoagie to go.” All of these particulars add up to a show that A.D. Amorosi of the Philadelphia Inquirer called “not only deliciously funny but intensely local as well.”
