Rachel McAdams is set to make her Broadway debut in Mary Jane.

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".

The artistic director of MTC, Lynne Meadow, shared that she was "honoured" to give The Notebook actress her Broadway debut.

"I'm equally pleased and honored to give Rachel McAdams her Broadway debut after audiences have enjoyed her many renowned performances on film," she said.

Mary Jane premiered at Yale Repertory Theatre back in 2017, starring actresses Emily Donahoe and Kathleen Chalfant.

Further casting has yet to be announced.

Previews is set to begin on 2 April 2024 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in Manhattan, New York.
