The Roundabout Theatre Company production of Meghan Kennedy’s Napoli, Brooklyn, the story of an Italian-American family in a rapidly-changing Park Slope during the 1960s, officially opened Off-Broadway June 27. Jordyn DiNatale, Lilli Kay, and Elise Kibler star as the three Muscolino sisters at the heart of the play, who increasingly find themselves at odds with their parents’ traditional values.

Directed by Gordon Edelstein, the new play began performances June 9.

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.
