Manhattan Theatre Club has announced the complete cast for the world premiere of Brooklyn Laundry, written and directed by John Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea). Performances begin February 6, and opening night is Wednesday, February 28 at New York City Center.

Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong leads the cast of Brooklyn Laundry, returning off Broadway for the first time since she led The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe at The Shed. Strong stars alongside One Life to Live’s Florencia Lozano, Andrea Syglowski (Pass Over), and Tony Award nominee David Zayas (Cost of Living, Dexter).

Shanley, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning writer of Doubt and the Oscar-winning writer of Moonstruck, presents a tragically funny story about the big impact that little things, like a bag of laundry, can have on a charismatic man and three sisters. Set in and around a Brooklyn laundromat, Shanley's story is about the bittersweet journey of embracing adulthood to its fullest.
