About Mary Jane on Broadway

See Academy Award nominee Rachel McAdams in her Broadway debut in Mary Jane, an intimate, heart-rending play by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony nominee Amy Herzog.

The star of Spotlight, The Notebook, and more takes on the title role of a single mother caregiving for her chronically ill son. Through grief, sadness, and struggles with her faith, an unexpected group of women — including her building superintendent, a Facebook friend, and a nurse — help her maintain her hope. As the New York Times raved, "'Mary Jane' [is] the most profound and harrowing of Ms. Herzog’s many fine plays."

Herzog, recently acclaimed for her Tony-nominated A Doll's House adaptation starring Jessica Chastain, and director Anne Kauffman, described by the New York Times as "one of the leading lights of downtown theater," join with McAdams to make this Broadway premiere shine.

More information about Mary Jane on Broadway

Mary Jane on Broadway showcases the highs and lows of a single mother caring for her young toddler, who lives with cerebral palsy and other health issues due to a premature birth. She hops from emergency to emergency, trying to maintain a positive outlook amid it all.

The Mary Jane play premiered in 2017 at the Yale Repertory Theatre. During its subsequent Off-Broadway run at New York Theatre Workshop, Carrie Coon played Mary Jane, receiving an Obie Award and a Drama Desk Award nomination for her performance.

This time around, the star is McAdams, who you may know from her roles in Mean Girls, Spotlight, and The Notebook. Mary Jane is her first Broadway credit, so you're witnessing a major milestone in her career!

Her director, Anne Kauffman, returns to Broadway less than a year after staging the Tony-nominated revival of The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, starring Oscar Isaac and Rachel Brosnahan, on and off Broadway.

What to watch for

  • While Mary Jane's ill son is a central part of the story, audiences never actually see him. Instead, alarms, suction sounds, and medical equipment suggest his presence.
  • The style of this play is unique. Herzog wrote most of Mary Jane as various conversations between Mary Jane and the people who come and go from her home.
  • Mary Jane's support circle varies in background and age, including women as young as 21 and as old as 70, a Buddhist nun, and a college student.
  • Amy Herzog is having a moment on Broadway. After adapting Ibsen's A Doll's House for Broadway in 2023, she's adapting his An Enemy of the People in 2024. Jeremy Strong stars in the Broadway production, opening shortly before Mary Jane.
