Photo Coverage: MARY JANE Celebrates Opening at New York Theatre Workshop
New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) presents Mary Jane, written by NYTW Usual Suspect and Pulitzer Prize Finalist Amy Herzog (4000 Miles, Belleville) and directed by two-time Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman (Sundown, Yellow Moon; A Life). Mary Jane has just been extended through October 29, 2017 after its official opening last night, September 25, 2017. BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening festivities below!
The cast of Mary Jane features LIZA COLÓN-ZAYAS (Between Riverside and Crazy) as "Sherrie/Dr. Toros," Tony and Emmy nominee Carrie Coon ("Fargo", "The Leftovers," Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) as "Mary Jane," Danaya Esperanza (Men on Boats) as "Amelia/Kat," Susan Pourfar (Tribes) as "Brianne/Chaya" and Brenda Wehle (The Crucible) as "Ruthie/Tenkei."
Following 2013's Belleville, named one of the best plays of the year by The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog and director Anne Kauffman return to New York Theatre Workshop with Mary Jane. During a rain-drenched summer in New York City, an indefatigable single mother navigates the mundane, shattering and sublime aspects of caring for a chronically sick child.
Mary Jane features scenic design by Laura Jellinek (The Light Years), costume design by Emily Rebholz (Dear Evan Hansen), lighting design by Japhy Weideman (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), sound design by Leah Gelpe (Sundown, Yellow Moon), properties by Kathy Fabian (Falsettos), and wig, hair and makeup design by Dave Bova and J. Jared Janas (Bandstand). Lisa Chernoff (Oslo) serves as the Stage Manager.
