What is Oh, Mary! about?

Oh, Mary! explores the inner conflicts of Mary Todd Lincoln in the days preceding her husband’s tragic assassination, an event that changed American history forever. Promising a distinctive exploration of historical intrigue and personal turmoil, the Oh, Mary! play offers insight into one of history’s most enigmatic figures through a funny, surreal lens.

Who is Cole Escola?

Cole Escola is an actor, writer, and comedian who found their path in New York City’s comedy circuit. In 2008, Escola met comedian Jeffery Self, who shared Escola’s love for theatre and '90s sitcoms, motivating the pair to create a series of YouTube videos as the "Very Good Looking (VGL) Gay Boys." Following the videos’ cult success, Escola and Self launched their own TV show on Logo named Jeffery & Cole Casserole, which ran for two seasons. Escola subsequently appeared in shows like Difficult People, Search Party, At Home with Amy Sedaris, Big Mouth, and more.

Apart from acting, Escola wrote for comedy TV programs like Ziwe, The Other Two, and Difficult People. In 2021, they released a YouTube version of their live special "Help! I'm Stuck With Cole Escola," and in 2023, they presented a YouTube homage to '70s Westerns titled "Our Home Out West," which earned Escola a place in Vanity Fair’s 25 Best Performances of 2023 list.
