About Mary Jane on Broadway

Experience Academy Award-nominated actress Rachel McAdams's Broadway debut in Mary Jane. The celebrated screen star takes on a poignant part in this drama by Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog, known for 4000 Miles and her recent Tony-nominated adaptation of A Doll's House starring Jessica Chastain.

The two-hour play follows a single mother, Mary Jane, struggling with the ups and downs of caring for her chronically ill toddler. Through the support of an unconventional circle of women from all ages and walks of life, Mary Jane tells her story, struggles with her faith, and finds support through her grief.

Obie Award-winning director Anne Kauffman stages the masterpiece on Broadway, returning uptown after her acclaimed staging of The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window with Oscar Isaac and Rachel Brosnahan in spring 2023. The New York Times called Kauffman "one of the leading lights of downtown theater."

Mary Jane highlights

Mary Jane premiered in 2017 at Yale Repertory Theatre and transferred off Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop later that year, with Carrie Coon in the title role. She was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and won an Obie Award for her performance in this tug-at-your-heartstrings play that makes audiences cry and laugh.

  • The story is universally resonant. As a New York Times article reads, "Mary Jane, with its ordinary name, is a character study, an Everywoman story, despite its origin in specific personal experience."
  • Rachel McAdams shines in everything she's in. McAdams is known for her roles in Spotlight, Mean Girls, The Notebook, and The Time Traveler's Wife, among many other films. Fans will get to see her talents up close in this gem of a show.
  • Mary Jane is unique in its storytelling. Much of the play unfolds through seemingly unrelated conversations between women coming and going from Mary Jane's home. All together, they show the mundane and extraordinary moments that encapsulate the life of a mother providing around-the-clock care for an ill child.
