Carrie Coon To Star In Amy Herzog's 'Mary Jane' Off-Broadway
Carrie Coon, who stars in TV's “Fargo” and the HBO series which just concluded, "The Leftovers,” will star in Amy Herzog's “Mary Jane,” at New York Theater Workshop in the fall, Variety reports. The show had its world premiere at New Haven's Yale Repertory Theatre in May.
“Mary Jane” starts previews off-Broadway Sept. 6 and opens Sept. 25.
Emily Donahoe starred in the Yale Rep production and the up-beat mother caring for her severely ill child. Kathleen Chalfant also was featured along with Vella Lovell, Miriam Silverman and China Tucker.
Variety also reports that Liza Colon-Zayas, Danaya Esperanza, Susan Pourfar and Brenda Wehle will also appear in the production, to be directed by Anne Kauffman, who also staged the Yale Rep production. Kauffman previously staged Herzog’s “Belleville” at NYTW in 2013.
Coon's other New York credits include Melissa James Gibson’s “Placebo” at off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons in 2015. Coon was nominated for a Tony Award for outstanding featured actress in a play in the 2012 revival of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”
She is also nominated for an Emmy for leading actress in a limited series for her work in “Fargo.”
