Full casting is set for Roundabout Theatre Company's upcoming production of Meghan Kennedy's Napoli, Brooklyn, running June 9-September 3 at the Laura Pels Theatre. Gordon Edelstein directs.

The company will include Shirine Babb as Celia Jones, Alyssa Bresnahan as Luda, Juliet Brett as Connie Duffy, Jordyn DiNatale as Francesca Muscolino, Lilli Kay as Tina Muscolino, Elise Kibler as Vita Muscolino, Erik Lochtefeld as Albert Duffy, and Michael Rispoli as Nic Muscolino.

Napoli, Brooklyn is described as follows: "In 1960 Brooklyn, the Muscolinos have raised three proud and passionate daughters. But as the girls come of age in a rapidly changing world, their paths diverge — in drastic and devastating ways — from their parents' deeply traditional values. Despite their fierce love, each young woman harbors a secret longing that, if revealed, could tear the family apart. When an earth-shattering event rocks their Park Slope neighborhood, life comes to a screeching halt and the Muscolino sisters are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future."

The creative team will include Eugene Lee (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights), and Fitz Patton (sound).
