Watch Now: Rachel McAdams on Her Broadway Debut in Mary Jane

Academy Award nominee is making her Broadway debut this season in the Broadway premiere of Amy Herzog’s Mary Jane. The Academy Award nominee stopped by Good Morning America to discuss her stage turn in what she calls “the part of a lifetime” and being on Broadway at the same time as the musical adaptation of The Notebook.

Captivating, affecting, and compassionate, Mary Jane is the story of a single mother in an impossible family situation. 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. But will inner strength and newfound friendships be enough to see her through? The New York Times calls Mary Jane “the most profound of Herzog’s many fine plays.” And The New Yorker raves, “beautiful and remarkable… Herzog has made theatre that shines.” Directing is the acclaimed Anne Kauffman (The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window).

The cast of Mary Jane also includes April Matthis, Susan Pourfar, Lily Santiago, and Brenda Wehle.
