“Faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, Mary Jane relies on unflagging optimism and humor, along with the wisdom of the women around her who have become a makeshift family, to take on each new day,” MTC continues.

MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow said, “I’m thrilled and very proud to be bringing this moving and heroic story of human experience by one of our great American playwrights to a Broadway stage following its acclaimed run off-Broadway in 2017, which was also directed by the brilliant Anne Kauffman. I’m equally pleased and honored to give Rachel McAdams her Broadway debut after audiences have enjoyed her many renowned performances on film. As a great fan of all three of these fabulous artists, I so look forward to sharing Mary Jane with our audiences.”

Additional casting, the opening night date and creative team for Mary Jane will be announced soon.

In addition to 2015’s Spotlight, McAdams film credits include Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, Game Night, Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows, and The Notebook, among many others. On television she’s appeared in Dave and True Detective.
