Manhattan Theatre Club's Off-Broadway world premiere of John Patrick Shanley's new play Brooklyn Laundry officially opens at New York City Center's Stage I February 28 after beginning previews February 6. Shanley is directing. The extended run will continue through April 14.

SNL and Schmigadoon! alum Cecily Strong stars as Fran, opposite David Zayas (Cost of Living) as Owen, Florencia Lozano (One Life to Live) as Trish, and Andrea Syglowski (Pass Over) as Susie. Understudies Janie Brookshire, Adriana DeMeo, and Alfredo Diaz round out the company. Casting is by Kelly Gillespie of Caparelliotis Casting.

The work centers on three sisters and a guy who run a Brooklyn laundry, and the "savage tricks life plays on them," according to press notes. The world premiere features scenic design by Santo Loquasto, costume design by Suzy Benzinger, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt, and original music and sound design by John Gromada.

Manhattan Theatre Club is currently hosting the Broadway premiere of Joshua Harmon's Prayer for the French Republic through March 3 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Following will be Amy Herzog's Mary Jane, set to play the Friedman beginning in the spring starring Rachel McAdams. Brooklyn Laundry is the company's only announced Off-Broadway show for 2024 so far.
