Rachel McAdams Will Make Broadway Debut in Amy Herzog's MARY JANE
Hollywood fav Rachel McAdams will make her Broadway debut next spring in Amy Herzog's Mary Jane at Manhattan Theatre Club, which will be directed by Anne Kauffman.
McAdams is an Academy Award nominee for her performance in Spotlight, which won her a Critic's Choice Award in 2016 for Best Acting Ensemble.
McAdams will star in the Broadway premiere of Mary Jane, written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog. Captivating, affecting and compassionate, it’s the story of a single mother in an impossible family situation. Faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, Mary Jane relies on unflagging optimism and humor, along with the wisdom of the women around her who have become a makeshift family, to take on each new day. But will inner strength and newfound friendships be enough to see her through?
Lynne Meadow, MTC's Artistic Director, said, “I’m thrilled and very proud to be bringing this moving and heroic story of human experience by one of our great American playwrights to a Broadway stage following its acclaimed run off-Broadway in 2017, which was also directed by the brilliant Anne Kauffman. I’m equally pleased and honored to give Rachel McAdams her Broadway debut after audiences have enjoyed her many renowned performances on film. As a great fan of all three of these fabulous artists, I so look forward to sharing Mary Jane with our audiences.”
Mary Jane will begin previews on Tuesday, April 2, 2024 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Additional casting, the opening night date and creative team for Mary Jane will be announced soon.
