Roundabout Theatre Company has announced complete casting for Meghan Kennedy’s Napoli, Brooklyn, a play commissioned by the theatre that will be directed by Gordon Edelstein. Performances will begin June 9 ahead of a June 27 opening night.
Jordyn DiNatale, Lilli Kay, and Elise Kibler will star as the three Muscolino sisters at the heart of the play, set in Park Slope during the 1960s. “As the girls come of age in a rapidly changing world, their paths diverge—in drastic and devastating ways—from their parents’ deeply traditional values,” read production notes. “Despite their fierce love, each young woman harbors a secret longing that, if revealed, could tear the family apart.”
Rounding out the cast will be Shirine Babb as Celia Jones, Alyssa Bresnahan as Luda, Juliet Brett as Connie Duffy, Erik Lochtefeld as Albert Duffy, and Michael Rispoli as Nic Muscolino.
Roundabout welcomes playwright Kennedy after the success of Too Much, Too Much, Too Many in 2013 at the Off-Broadway company’s Underground theatre. Performances of Napoli, Brooklyn will be in the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, located at 111 W. 46th Street. The limited Off-Broadway engagement is scheduled through September 3.
Tickets are available by calling (212) 719-1300, online at Roundabouttheatre.org, and in person at any Roundabout box office: The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 W 46th Street), American Airlines Theatre box office (227 West 42nd Street), and Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street).
