Mary Benton Faber (born August 8, 1979 in Greenville, North Carolina) is an American actress, singer, voice actress, and dancer. She graduated from the Governor's School for the Arts and Brandeis University.
Faber made her Broadway debut on December 26, 2005, replacing Stephanie D'Abruzzo in the musical Avenue Q. She played the big-hearted Kate Monster and the easy Lucy T. Slut. Starting October 30, 2006, she took a leave of absence from Avenue Q to appear as Clea in the Playwright's Horizon's production of Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky. Faber returned to Avenue Q on December 19, 2006. Faber's last appearance in Avenue Q was on October 9, 2008.
Faber has appeared in off-Broadway shows including Saved! at Playwright's Horizons, Slut, and The Tutor. Faber also previously worked in the Theatreworks musical Junie B. Jones. Mary helped to develop the character of Natalie in Feeling Electric (which would eventually be redeveloped into the Pulitzer Prize winning Next to Normal). She starred in The Corn is Green alongside Kate Burton at the Huntington Theater in Boston. Between theater jobs, Faber is known to moonlight at improvisational clubs including the Upright Citizens Brigade, The Riot Act, and The Second City.
Faber originated the role of Heather in the musical American Idiot while the show was being developed at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. She continued the role of Heather from the opening of its Broadway run until December 12, 2010.
