Best Play Tony nominee Mary Jane by Amy Herzog has gotten another extension at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The play, which officially opened April 23, will now continue through June 30, which Manhattan Theatre Club is calling a "final" extension. Read reviews for the new production here.

2024 Tony Award nominee Rachel McAdams is making her Broadway debut starring in the title role, playing a mother taking care of her ill child.

The MTC production also stars Brenda Wehle as Ruthie and Tenkei, April Matthis as Sherry and Dr. Toros, Susan Pourfar as Brianne and Chaya, and Lily Santiago as Amelia and Kat. Katya Campbell, Susanna Guzmán, and Megumi Nakamura round out the company as understudies. It is directed by Anne Kauffman.

The work premiered at Yale Repertory Theatre in 2017, coming to Off-Broadway's New York Theatre Workshop later the same year. Both of those earlier runs were also directed by Kauffman, and Wehle and Pourfar are reprising their performances from the Off-Broadway bow as well.

Also back from the Off-Broadway production are scenic designer Laura Jellinek and sound designer Leah Gelpe, newly joined by costume designer Brenda Abbandandolo, lighting designer Ben Stanton, and hair, wig, and make-up designer J. Jared Janas. Narda E. Alcorn is production stage manager, and casting is by Caparelliotis Casting's Kelly Gillespie.
