New York Theatre Workshop has announced a two-week extension for its production of Mary Jane by Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Herzog. The New York premiere began performances September 6 ahead of a September 25 opening, and will now continue through October 29.
The play takes place over a rain-drenched summer in New York City and follows a single mother—Mary Jane—navigating life caring for a chronically sick child.
Two-time Obie winner Anne Kauffman directs a cast led by Tony and Emmy nominee Carrie Coon in the title role, along with Liza Colón-Zayas (Between Riverside and Crazy), Danaya Esperanza (Men on Boats), Susan Pourfar (Tribes), and Brenda Wehle (The Crucible).
The production 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), and sound design by Leah Gelpe (Sundown, Yellow Moon). Lisa Chernoff (Oslo) is the stage manager.
Mary Jane is produced in association with Yale Repertory Theatre, where it was commissioned and received its world premiere in April 2017.
