2013-2014 Season

 

I am excited to announce that the second production at the American Airlines theatre in our 2013-2014 season will be Sophie Treadwell’s Machinal, directed by Lyndsey Turner and starring Rebecca Hall.

I am so thrilled to welcome these talented women into the Roundabout family with their Broadway debuts.

Both Rebecca and Lyndsey are fixtures in the West End. The Royal Court remounted Lyndsey’s hit production of Posh last season, and her production of Chimerica is currently in previews at the Almeida Theatre. In addition to her numerous theatre credits, including such notable productions as Mrs. Warren’s Profession, As You Like It, and The Cherry Orchard , Rebecca received critical acclaim for her role in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” and can currently be seen in “Iron Man 3.”

Machinal is an ambitious and highly stylized play that hasn’t been seen on Broadway since 1928, and this production will be an exciting addition to our 2013-2014 season.

Productions in the 2013-2014 Season are currently only available to subscribers. To learn more about our variety of subscription packages and exclusive benefits please visit our website.

I am thrilled to announce two more productions for our 2013-2014 Season. The first production at the American Airlines Theatre will be a revival of The Winslow Boy by Terence Rattigan, directed by Lindsay Posner and starring Roger Rees and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio.  We will also produce the World Premiere of Cutie and Bear, a Roundabout Commission by Bekah Brunstetter that will be directed by Evan Cabnet at the Laura Pels Theatre.

Lindsay is a British director of great esteem, and his production of The Winslow Boy at The Old Vic earlier this year was truly incredible. We’ll be mounting that production with a new cast, led by the great Roger Rees. Roger has been a part of the Roundabout family since 1996, most recently seen in our production of Uncle Vanya (2000), and I’m sure he will be incredible in this play. Mary Elizabeth will be back on Broadway for the first time since her Tony-nominated performance in Man of La Mancha.

Bekah has had much success Off-Broadway with Be a Good Little Widow at Ars Nova and Oohrah! at the Atlantic. We’ve had our eye on Bekah for quite some time, and I’m excited to finally have the opportunity to bring her exceptional play to our stage. And it will be wonderful to welcome back Evan, who directed The Dream of the Burning Boy in the Underground and has been on board with Cutie and Bear since the first developmental reading.

I’m pleased to be adding these exciting productions to the 2013-2014 Season, and look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.

BAD JEWS is moving upstairs in 2013

Posted on: February 1st, 2013 by Todd Haimes

 

It is my great pleasure to announce that the first production of the 2013-2014 Season at the Laura Pels Theatre will bring back the entire company of Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews for an Off-Broadway remount after their sold-out run in the Black Box this season. It is incredibly satisfying to see an Underground show make the move upstairs. And with Tracee Chimo, Michael Zegen, Molly Ranson, and Philip Ettinger returning to the roles they originated, I know our audiences will enjoy seeing the fireworks fly once again. Daniel Aukin will return to direct along with the fantastic original design team.

I am also excited to announce the full roster for the 2nd Annual Roundabout Underground Reading Series, which presented the first public reading of Bad Jews last season. The Recommendation by Jonathan Caren, Swimmers by Rachel Bonds, Tinker to Evers to Chance by Mat Smart, Shiner by Christian Durso, and Benefit of the Doubt by Kate Gersten will each be presented over the week of February 25th – March 1st in the Black Box Theatre. A limited number of tickets to the reading series will be available to general public. These tickets can be reserved by emailing undergroundreadings@roundabouttheatre.org

It is great to see the new play development program so present at the Steinberg Center for Theatre, from the first look at a crop of new plays in the Reading Series, to The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin premiering at the Pels this Spring, through to the first Off-Broadway transfer of our own Underground production next season.

I encourage you to sign up to be part of Roundabout’s Email Club as members will be notified first about ticket availability for the 2013-2014 Season.
