Brooklyn Laundry

Fran is broke and chronically single. Owen has a bad back and a lot of baggage. They might be just what each other needs… but life has some savage tricks left in store. Funny, tragic, moving, and hopeful, this new comedy drama comes from the Tony, Pulitzer and Oscar-winning author of Moonstruck, Doubt, and Outside Mullingar. 


Begins April 11

Welcome to New York 🌆

Building the set for BROOKLYN LAUNDRY takes a village! Thanks to the generosity of organizations and individuals across the city, we've gathered over 1,500 pieces of clothing to dress our set. The pieces have taken countless hours to organize and multiple days to hang up in the theatre. We are so grateful for our amazing production staff who make the magic happen! You won't wanna miss this one come to life beginning April 11 👕🫧

Set design and renderings by Jeffrey D. Kmiec and properties design by Nick Bartleson.
