HOLIDAYINN-Casting_506x253

I'm thrilled to share the first casting details for next season's production of Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical. The cast will include Bryce Pinkham (Jim), Lora Lee Gayer (Linda), Megan Lawrence (Louise), Megan Sikora (Lila Dixon), Corbin Bleu (Ted), and Lee Wilkof (Danny).

These actors have incredible lists of credits and awards to their names. They have appeared in major Broadway and regional productions (Lora Lee in Doctor Zhivago and Follies; Megan Sikora in Wicked and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying). They've received multiple Tony nominations (Bryce for his work in A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Megan Lawrence for The Pajama Game, and Lee for Kiss Me, Kate). And one helped to launch the recent wave of hugely successful film and television musicals; Corbin was a star of the Emmy Award-winning High School Musical.

Lee Wilkof and Megan Lawrence are longtime members of the Roundabout family, Lee having appeared in She Loves Me (1993) and The Boys From Syracuse and Megan in The Pajama Game. I'm thrilled to welcome the rest of the cast to our stage for the first time, though many of them have been a part of Roundabout readings and workshops in the past -- some in the very development of this musical.

I know this group, under the direction of Gordon Greenberg and with the choreography of Denis Jones, will do a phenomenal job bringing Irving Berlin, Gordon Greenberg, and Chad Hodge's Holiday Inn to life.

Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical will begin performances September 1, 2016, at Studio 54. For tickets and more information, please visit our website.

ArthurMiller'sThePrice_270x140I am happy to announce the second show in the American Airlines Theatre next season. We will be producing Arthur Miller’s The Price, directed by Terry Kinney.

Roundabout has a long history with Arthur Miller’s work, including productions of After the Fall (2004), The Man Who Had All the Luck (2002), and A View from the Bridge (1997). We revived The Price in 1992, and I’m thrilled to bring the exceptional play to a new generation of audience members. Working with Arthur throughout the last years of his life was truly one of the greatest privileges of my tenure at Roundabout, and I’m honored to be producing his work again. I know the production will be fantastic, especially in the hands of the great Terry Kinney, one of the co-founders of Steppenwolf and an incredible director and actor (directing credits include One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and reasons to be pretty).

Performances are set to begin February 16, 2017 with Opening Night scheduled for March 16, 2017.

ColumbiaAs part of the previously announced collaborative partnership between Roundabout Theatre Company and Columbia University, each celebrating their 50th Anniversaries this year, the reading series awards three playwrights from the current MFA program and recent alumni with a cash prize as well as two readings in Roundabout’s Black Box Theatre. Five finalists have also received cash prizes in recognition of their exceptional work. No other collaborative partnership in the New York area brings together an esteemed Ivy League MFA program with a Tony Award‐winning not‐for‐profit theatre. The reading series is made possible by a grant from the Tow Foundation.

Playwrights featured in the inaugural Columbia@Roundabout New Play Reading Series include Dominic Finocchiaro, Chas LiBretto and Emma Stanton. Finalists include McFeely Sam Goodman, Ben Hoover, Daaimah Mubashshir, Kristin Slaney and Celine Song.

The New Play Reading Series will be held June 14‐20 at Roundabout’s Black Box Theatre, home to the Roundabout Underground program, highlighting the work of Columbia MFA playwrights. Mentorship is provided by celebrated Columbia faculty members, including Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang, Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and OBIE Award winner Charles L. Mee. The series creates a bridge for Columbia’s emerging writers and provides Roundabout audience members with an opportunity to experience work by the next generation of leading theatre artists.

Readings will be open to industry members and other guests by invitation only. The selection committee consisted of two representatives from Roundabout Theatre Company, Director of New Play Development Jill Rafson and Artistic Consultant Robyn Goodman and two representatives from Columbia University, Christian Parker, Chair of the Theatre Program at Columbia University School of the Arts and David Henry Hwang, head of the Playwriting concentration for the program.
