Anything Goes will continue on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

Roundabout was most recently represented across the country with the critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning national tour of Twelve Angry Men that toured the country for 2 years, spending 63 weeks across the United States and Canada. Our longest-running musical, the revival of Cabaret, received a multi-year tour across the country beginning in 1999. In 2011, our acclaimed work reached a worldwide cinema audience with the HD capture and broadcast of their Tony nominated production of The Importance of Being Earnest, starring Brian Bedford.

“It is important as an institutional theatre to help great work get seen by a wider audience. While New York audiences and visitors will continue to have the opportunity to see Anything Goes on Broadway, I am thrilled to be able to follow-up Roundabout’s successful national tour of Twelve Angry Men with Anything Goes, an equally extraordinary theatrical experience.  There is so much pride in being able to share the work of Roundabout with audiences around the country and in their home towns," says Artistic Director Todd Haimes.

Newsday Names Sons of the Prophet as One of 2011's Best

"Sons of the Prophet: This major new play by gifted young playwright Stephen Karam takes us to a world both exotic and familiar with elegance and the kind of humor that understands how perilously we all linger near the emotional abyss. Peter DuBois' lean production, which includes a harrowing performance by Joanna Gleason as an unraveling publisher, is terrific." - Newsday
