I’m thrilled with how our 2012-13 season has come together. As the final piece to be announced, Talley’s Folly is a perfect fit. This intimate revival from one of our great American playwrights, Lanford Wilson, provides just the right counterpoint to the sprawling period romance of Cyrano, the ensembles of Inge’s Picnic or Odets’ The Big Knife and the unique musical style of Rupert Holmes’ The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
Joining Talley’s Off-Broadway this season, we have new plays from the exciting young British writer Nick Payne and from homegrown playwright Steven Levenson, who was first produced through our Roundabout Underground program. It is very exciting to put together a season with such variety, that features talent both familiar and new, and consistently offers the audience the kind of enduring themes and stories that have come to define Roundabout.
The limited engagement will begin performances on February 8, 2013 and open on March 5, 2013 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).
