Rachel McAdams made her Broadway debut this seaosn in a deeply personal play by Amy Herzog, Mary Jane, presented by Manhattan Theatre Club. The performance earned the Oscar-nominated actress a new accolade- a Tony nomination.

"I connected to this story and to this woman, first and foremost," she explained to BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge. "Talking to Anne [Kauffman] and Amy [Herzog] and realizing right off the bat what extraordinary women they are and how powerful their work is and how supportive they are [was incredible]. To now be on the other side and have people receive the work so positively and to embrace it so fully... I'm just blown over by people's willingness to come to the theatre  and put their heart into it.
