Manhattan Theatre Club (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director and Chris Jennings, Executive Director) is pleased to present the world premiere of Brooklyn Laundry, written and directed by Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley (DoubtOutside Mullingar, Prodigal Son). Opening night is Wednesday, February 28 at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55thStreet).

The cast of Brooklyn Laundry features Florencia Lozano (“Narcos,” “One Life to Live”), Cecily Strong (“SNL,” “Schmigadoon!”), Andrea Syglowski (Pass Over, “Blue Bloods”) and David Zayas (Cost of Living, “Dexter”).

John Patrick Shanley, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning author of Doubt and the Oscar®-winning writer of Moonstruck, returns to MTC with this world premiere of a new play. Sometimes big things start from little things; in this case, a bag of laundry. Shanley’s latest is about three sisters and a guy who runs a laundry in Brooklyn, and the sometimes savage tricks life plays on them. Tragic and funny by turns, this story will remind you what is important in life... and the sorrow and joy of fully embracing adulthood. 

The creative team for Brooklyn Laundry includes Santo Loquasto (set design), Suzy Benzinger (costume design), Brian MacDevitt (lighting design), John Gromada (original music & sound design), Caparelliotis Casting & Kelly Gillespie(casting), Kevin Bertolacci (Production Stage Manager).

Support for Brooklyn Laundry is provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust and The Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater.
