Just Announced: Marvin’s Room

Posted on: September 6th, 2016 by Todd Haimes

Marvin's RoomI am thrilled to share the title of our third and final show in the American Airlines Theatre next season. Anne Kauffman will be making her Roundabout debut directing the late Scott McPherson's Marvin's Room. This marvelous play, which had an award-winning run off-Broadway in the early 90s, has never before been seen on Broadway. You may be familiar with the play’s 1996 film adaptation (also penned by McPherson), which was directed by Jerry Zaks and starred Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Diane Keaton, and Robert De Niro. The film was nominated for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.

I am honored to host the Broadway premiere of Marvin’s Room at Roundabout under the stellar direction of Anne, whose credits include productions at Playwrights Horizons, MCC, Vineyard Theatre, Goodman Theatre, Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and many others. She has directed plays by the likes of Amy Herzog, Lisa D’Amour, Greg Pierce, Noah Haidle, and Jordan Harrison, and she is the recipient of an OBIE Award for Sustained Excellence of Direction. We are excited to welcome Anne to the Roundabout stage.

Previews are scheduled to begin June 8, 2017.
