ARTISTIC RISK-TAKING TO BETTER SERVE THE ART FORM

Roundabout’s humble beginnings were focused on producing great classic plays, and since the early ’90s, we’ve become a leading force in developing bold new work and timeless musicals. We aim to produce enduring stories that aren’t commercially viable but deserve to be seen by theatergoers. Each year, Roundabout commissions a minimum of 15 playwrights, mounts world premiere productions of at least three new works, and reimagines classic plays and musicals for new generations. The writers, directors and actors who work at Roundabout are the most acclaimed and respected artists in the industry. Support for our 50th Anniversary Campaign ensures that we can continue taking risks on work that would not otherwise be seen. A healthy reserve fund gives us the stability to mount world-class Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, and at the same time offer playwright residencies, expanded resources for emerging artists, and the most affordable tickets to the widest possible audience. Support for our 50th Anniversary Campaign ensures that Artistic Director Todd Haimes and our Associate Artists can continue taking risks on work that would not otherwise be seen.
