ROUNDABOUT BLOG

 

I am pleased to announce our next production of Roundabout Underground. Ordinary Days, a new musical with music & lyrics by Adam Gwon, directed by Marc Bruni, will mark our third offering and first musical in the Black Box.

From the bustling streets to the quiet rooftops, Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives are unexpectedly interconnected by circumstance. The series of funny and fortuitous events in this intimate, fast-paced musical proves that ordinary days can be simply extraordinary.

It is a particular joy to welcome back Adam Gwon and Marc Bruni, both of whom have been a part of the Roundabout family for a number of years. Adam, one of “50 to Watch” according to the Dramatist magazine and winner of the 2008 Fred Ebb Award, began his career as an associate in our Development office. And among Marc’s impressive list of Broadway credits are Roundabout’s productions of The Pajama Game and The Man Who Came to Dinner, on which he worked as Associate Director.

I am honored that Adam has chosen Roundabout Underground for the New York premiere of Ordinary Days. I look forward to working with Adam and Marc, and showcasing their remarkable talents.

Previews will begin on Friday, October 2nd, and the Opening Night is scheduled for Sunday, October 25th.
