The Roundabout Theatre Company production of Meghan Kennedy’s Napoli, Brooklyn officially opens Off-Broadway June 27. The coming-of-age drama takes place in Park Slope during the 1960s, and follows three sisters who find themselves at odds with their parents’ traditional values.
Directed by Gordon Edelstein, the new play began performances June 9.
Jordyn DiNatale, Lilli Kay, and Elise Kibler star as the three Muscolino sisters at the heart of the story. “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 are 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.
Performances of Napoli, Brooklyn are 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 currently scheduled through September 3.
