Brooklyn Laundry has announced a two week extension at Manhattan Theatre Club ahead of its opening night tomorrow, Wednesday, February 28 at New York City Center.

The world premiere of Brooklyn Laundry is written and directed by Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley. The production will now play through Sunday, April 14. 

The cast of Brooklyn Laundry features Florencia LozanoCecily Strong, Andrea Syglowski, and David Zayas.

John Patrick Shanley, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning author of Doubt and the Oscar®-winning writer of Moonstruck, returns to MTC with this world premiere of a new play. Sometimes big things start from little things; in this case, a bag of laundry. Shanley’s latest is about three sisters and a guy who runs a laundry in Brooklyn, and the sometimes savage tricks life plays on them. Tragic and funny by turns, this story will remind you what is important in life... and the sorrow and joy of fully embracing adulthood.  

The creative team for Brooklyn Laundry includes Santo Loquasto (set design), Suzy Benzinger (costume design), Brian MacDevitt (lighting design), John Gromada (original music & sound design), Caparelliotis Casting & Kelly Gillespie (casting), Kevin Bertolacci (Production Stage Manager). 

Support for Brooklyn Laundry is provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust and The Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater. 

Manhattan Theatre Club will offer audiences and the general public free Beyond the Stage content, which is designed to enrich audiences’ experience with Brooklyn Laundry.

Upcoming events include:
