- Doubt: A Parable
John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award®-winning Best Play returns to Broadway for the first time in nearly two decades. “An inspired study in moral uncertainty” (The New York Times), this modern classic stars Tony Award winners Tyne Daly and Liev Schreiber in a staggering new Roundabout production directed by Scott Ellis.
Originally staged by the Negro Ensemble Company in 1979, and featured in the first year of Roundabout’s Refocus Project, Samm-Art Williams’ Home is a muscular and melodic coming-of-age story that gives voice to the unbreakable spirit of all Americans who have been searching for a place to belong.
- I Need That
Danny DeVito returns to Roundabout Theatre Company in I Need That, starring alongside his daughter, Lucy DeVito, and Ray Anthony Thomas in a deeply human new comedy from playwright Theresa Rebeck and director Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the team behind Bernhardt/Hamlet.
The American Airlines Theatre was designed by George Keister and built by the Selwyn brothers, Edgar and Archie, in 1918. Originally named the Selwyn Theatre, the theatre is a historic Italian Renaissance style Broadway venue. When built, its most unique feature was separate smoking rooms for men and women. Also, there was a shower and a telephone in each dressing room. It was originally used for musicals and other theatrical performances, including Cole Porter’s Wake Up and Dream and Three’s a Crowd with Clifton Webb, but it was eventually used as a movie theatre. In the early 1990s, it was a visitor’s center and it featured a limited-run production of Eugene O’ Neill’s The Hairy Ape. Then it stood unused for years until the space was renovated in 1997 by The Roundabout Theatre Company. It was renamed The American Airlines Theatre in honor of its major sponsor, and reopened on June 30, 2000. The theatre originally had 1,180 seats, and now has only 740 seats. It currently serves as the home of the Roundabout.
